This year, the British Youth Council are going to be taking part in the Big Give Challenge for a fifth year in a row! The Big Give is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign, which helps charities raise millions each year, and gives supporters an amazing opportunity to have their donations doubled.
Over the course of the campaign, the British Youth Council are aiming to raise £4,000 overall towards our life-changing programmes elevating Youth Voice.
How does it work?
From 12pm Tuesday 30 November 2021 to 12pm to Tuesday 7 December 2021, every donation made via our special Big Give webpage will be doubled*.
So if you donate £10, it becomes worth £20. If you donate £25, it becomes worth £50, and so on.
We need the support of those passionate about elevating youth voice to help raise £2,000, which will be matched by pledges of £2,000 already secured from generous donors and our charity champion, Four Acre Trust.
*Donations are doubled until all pledges funds are exhausted.
Young people feel that their voices are not being heard. They feel worried about their future and disconnected from a society that doesn’t take their concerns seriously.
The British Youth Council helps young people from all backgrounds get connected and use their voice to create change on issues they care about – whether that is finance and economics, healthcare, education or mental health. Through a wide range of programmes and membership services, we educate and train young people to influence and inform the decisions that affect their lives. This enables them to have their say and make them feel engaged in social action.
Through our Big Give campaign, you can help us make sure that young people are heard and given the skills they need to become leaders of tomorrow – and double your impact at the same time.
How do I donate?
Only donations made during the campaign dates on our page of the Big Give website will be doubled. This link will go live on Tuesday 30th November at midday.
The campaign will then run until 12pm midday on Tuesday 7th December, unless we meet our target beforehand.
Donations made outside of these times and dates (or on our British Youth Council webpage rather than our Big Give webpage) will still come to the charity, but won’t be doubled or counted towards the Big Give total.
