We define philanthropy as the giving of resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact and in a tax efficient manner. It can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one’s social capital. We believe in the power of philanthropy as a great social connector and the source of many great opportunities.

Nov 29th 2017

The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017  which offers to double donations made to 500 selected charities has raised over £4.5 million in 24 hours.

Donations can be made and doubled until December 5th  Midday or until charities’ fund are exhausted – whichever is the sooner.  

Alex Day of Big Give said: “We have been blown away by the generosity to this year's campaign, enabling the work of charities to have twice the impact this Christmas.”

Charities  taking part cover a broad range of causes from protecting endangered species, to providing overseas aid, to delivering lifesaving healthcare in the UK, such as trialing an artificial pancreas and gene therapy research.
