The Small Charity Week Challenge kicked off today (Thursday 17th June) and will run until Wednesday 23rd June, so make sure you're encouraging as many of your donors and supporters as possible to help you in the challenge! In case you haven't heard of this already, read on for more information... Small Charity Week is taking place between 14th-19th June 2021. Localgiving is hosting the Small Charity Week Challenge which will start on Fundraising Day Thursday 17th June and run until Wednesday 23rd June.
This challenge is a competition where all organisations on the Localgiving platform can participate (providing your annual income is under £1m) and all one-time donations to organisations during this time will be counted towards the leaderboard. All types of pages are eligible to participate in this challenge - charity, project, fundraising and appeal. If you have an active membership with Localgiving you're automatically included within the challenge - all you need to do is promote your page to get as many donors as you can!
Similar to their previous campaigns, there will be a leaderboard with every donation received from a unique donor through any of your pages scoring one point. Their live leaderboard will count all unique donors between 17/06/21 at 00:00:00 and 23/06/21 at 23:59:59. You will be able to keep track of your donations in the leaderboard and the winners will be announced on Thursday 24th June.
All you need to do is encourage your supporters to donate to your Localgiving page between 17th - 23rd June in order for their donation to be counted in the challenge - so make sure you spread the word far and wide!
The charities on the leaderboard in the top 20 places will each be awarded prizes and we will be awarding £2000 in prizes overall.
You can share your challenges on social media by tagging @Localgiving and using the hashtag #SCWChallenge. We'll be sharing and re-tweeting your posts!
