The Big Give has launched an emergency matched fund to support the aid agencies fighting to help save lives. This fund will double public donations to several trusted international charities.

  • Mission statement

    Nepal has been devastated by a 7. 8 earthquake which struck the capital city, Kathmandu, and surrounding areas on Saturday. Reports are also emerging of mountainous areas, including Everest base camp, being completely cut off and desperately in need of aid. The death toll stands at over 3,000 people and is rising by the hour, many thousands more have been left homeless without shelter, food and water.

    The Big Give Emergency Fund will double public donations to international charity appeals on the Big Give. By donating to this appeal you will be offering to double online donations, inspiring further public support for this emergency. Your donation will be worth twice as much as you inspire others to give alongside you to help those fighting for survival in Nepal.
