Double your Donation to The Reader Organisation with the Big Give Christmas Challenge

Written by Ellen Perry, 4th December 2013

The-Big-Give-Christmas-Challenge-2013This year The Reader Organisation is part of The Big Give Challenge. For a limited period between 5th-7th December (that’s Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week!), any individual donation we receive through our profile on The Big Give website will potentially be doubled by match funding from The Garfield Weston Foundation, who have supported our work over the past few years.

The Big Give Challenge provides the perfect chance to make a contribution to our work, and for this difference to be doubled! Any size donation will be hugely appreciated and will help us change more lives through shared reading. Through your donations, we're looking to appoint a new Project Worker who will read with people who are most in need of the many powerful benefits shared reading can bring.

For every £1 donated, The Reader Organisation's work will generate £6.47 in social value. (SROI study, 2013).

For donations to be doubled, they should be made via the ‘Donate Online Now’ button on our profile page as near to 10am as possible on 5th, 6th or 7th December. Only donations made on these dates will be eligible for match funding, and as there are only a restricted amount of funds available for each day, giving as near to 10am as possible increases our chance of receiving match funding.
