Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021

We are delighted to have been accepted into the Big Give Christmas Challenge for a fifth year in a row!

It’s the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign, which helps charities raise millions each year, and gives donors an amazing opportunity to double their donation towards the causes they care about.

This year, we’re aiming to raise £4,000 towards our life-changing programmes that aim to elevate 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 know that times are tough for many during the pandemic, and not everyone will be in a position to give. But for those who are able, they’ll have the opportunity to double the impact of their donation.
We need the support of those passionate about elevating youth voice to donate whatever they can and 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.

Why donate?

Young people feel that their voices aren't 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 be in 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.
Help us make sure 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) will still come to the charity, but won’t be doubled or counted towards the Big Give total.
