Platinum Champions

As a Platinum Champion, you are entitled to all the benefits of the Gold Champion package, as well as receiving additional support from the Big Give. We work with you on a one-to-one basis to give you a thorough overview of the charities listed on our website that we feel match your philanthropic interest.

We are delighted to meet with you at your own convenience to answer any questions you may have about our match-funding campaign and we are happy to make slight amendments to the model to suit your philanthropic needs.

The success of the Christmas Challenge to date (£103m raised since 2008) would not have been possible without the involvement of our Platinum Champions. To show our gratitude for their contributions, we list the Platinum Champions as key partners on and include them in all PR/ comms relating to the campaign.

We are also proud of the strong presence we hold on social media; previous Christmas Challenges have trended on Twitter with tweets from Stephen Fry, Gabby Logan, Sting and Davina McCall (amongst others). 

We understand the importance of receiving feedback from your charities on the work they do post campaign, so we provide ongoing support in the management of your portfolio after the Challenge. We take on board to the type of reporting you would like to receive and endeavour to provide this.

We hope that participating in the Christmas Challenge for our Platinum Champions may be the beginning of long-term relationships between you and your charities.
