What is it?

The Summer Give is an online match funding campaign run by the Big Give and The Childhood Trust. During the week of the campaign supporters can have their donation to participating charities doubled. The campaign is focused on alleviating the impact of child poverty in London during the summer holidays when children are particularly vulnerable.

The Summer Give 2018 took place in June and raised over £1 million for 47 participating charities. You can read more about the campaign here

Who matches the donations?

Example: If a charity is seeking to raise a total of £8,000 towards their project and receives online donations of £4,000 in the Summer Give, these donations will be doubled by the pledges (£2,000) and The Childhood Trust (£2,000).
