The Big Give Christmas Challenge – help us raise more funds for biomedical research

July 15, 2021


The ME Association is looking out for some amazing supporters who are prepared to pledge a minimum of £100 to set up the matched funding pot for our Big Give Christmas Challenge.

This year we're aiming high with another ‘Double Your Donation' appeal.

We want to raise £50,000 to top up our Ramsay Research Fund, where fundraising fell away dramatically during the pandemic.

We are now in the ‘pledging phase' of the campaign when we ask people to help us build up the matched funding pot before the public appeal starts on at midday on ‘Giving Tuesday' (30th November).

The pledge will be for a minimum of £100 – or anything more than that. Please pledge what you know you will be able to afford. Pledges can only be accepted through the link below.

The public appeal will last for seven days until midday on 7th December, after which the pledges become due for payment.

Pledgers must not pay up before the due date. If by mistake they do, their pledge falls out of the matched funding pot and it will then be treated as a normal donation which cannot then be used to double up other people's donations.

We will be in touch with all pledgers immediately after the public appeal in order to collect payment.

We'd dearly like to see £12,500 in the matched funding pot before the deadline of 27th August. Philanthropists and corporate givers affiliated to The Big Give will then be asked to pledge a similar amount.

Can you help us get there?
