The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2012 will begin at 10am GMT (11am CET) on Thursday 6th December, and TransConflict kindly requests your support to help raise funds for the Global Coalition for Conflict Transformation!
To make a donation to TransConflict through the Big Give Christmas Challenge, please click here at 10am GMT on Thursday 6th December!
What is the Big Give Christmas Challenge?
Every year, the Big Give runs a matched funding event called the Christmas Challenge where charities could have their donation matched, making your support to TransConflict go even further! The previous four Challenges have already raised over £30m for charities working all around the world!
TransConflict was selected to participate in the Big Give’s Christmas Challenge 2012, which provides us with the opportunity to access over £1m of Charity Champion Funds provided by a number of foundations, corporate sponsors and individuals. The Global Coalition for Conflict Transformation (GCCT) has been chosen by one of the Big Give’s Charity Champions, meaning that donations received during the Christmas Challenge could be doubled!
When should I make my donation during the Christmas Challenge?
Matched funds will be released at 10am GMT on the morning of the 6th, 7th and 8th December. On-line donations are matched on a first come, first serve basis and your on-line donation will be matched as long as there are matched funds still available. As such, you should try to make your on-line donation as close to 10am on these three mornings as possible.
The Christmas Challenge will conclude once all of the matched funds have been exhausted. In the event that matched funds continue to remain available, the Christmas Challenge will finally close on 19th December at 5pm.
Where should I make my on-line donation during the Christmas Challenge?
To have a chance of making a matched donation, you must click the ‘Donate On-line Now’ button on the Christmas Challenge project page of the charity that you wish to donate to. Please note that only on-line donations made to the project selected for the Christmas Challenge will be matched.
How will the funds raised be used?
The funds raised will go towards the establishment of the Global Conflict Transformation Fund, which will provide vital funding for the conflict transformation and peacebuilding activities of members of the Global Coalition for Conflict Transformation.
We very much hope that you will assist our efforts to secure funding for the Global Coalition for Conflict Transformation! Should you not be in a position to make a pledge yourself, we would be grateful if you could share this appeal with others who may be interested in supporting the GCCT!
