About the Big Give

The Big Give makes it easy for you to find and support charities and projects that suit your interests. Essentially, the Big Give is a search engine and a secure way for you to give to the charities of your choice. However, we believe that the Big Give goes far beyond the provision of a donation platform.

We aim to:

  • Promote intelligent giving
  • Make your donation go further than ever before
  • Help you find and support new charities by giving more than just money

We acheive this by running several programmes, including our Christmas Challenge and Trustee Finder.
