The Big Give is a website which features over 10,000 charities working all over the world, describing itself as the intelligent way for proactive philanthropists to aid charities. It’s supported by the Reed Foundation, the charitable arm of Reed Specialist Recruitment.
Every year The Big Give runs a fundraising initiative called The Big Give Christmas Challenge. Last year’s challenge raised £11.2 million for 367 charities. We’ve taken part for the last give years, as it provides a great opportunity for AYM’s donors to double the value of their contributions.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has made a donation to AYM through the Big Give’s Christmas Challenge week. We’re delighted to say that including matched funds and Gift Aid we raised a total of £55,543. This will fund 111 of our average Awards!
Your support makes a tremendous difference to the hundreds of talented young musicians we are able to work with every year. Here’s Sofia and a few of our other 2018 Award winners to tell you more.
The Big Give Christmas Challenge may now have finished, however if you weren’t able to donate there are still many other ways that you can support talented young musicians.
