About the Big Give

The Big Give is designed with charities at heart. At its most basic level, the Big Give is a search engine and a secure way for donors to give online. However, we believe that the Big Give goes far beyond the provision of a donation platform.

We aim to:

  • Promote innovative fundraising
  • Inspire your next generation of donors
  • Help you increase the impact of your supporters’ contributions

We achieve this by running several programmes, including our Christmas Challenge and Trustee Finder service. To learn more about these opportunities, please select from any of the options below:
