The London Music Fund has been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017 supported by their champions, the Childhood Trust.
During the Christmas Challenge LMF will be raising vital funds for the organisation’s scholarship programme which supports children learning an instrument who otherwise may not be able to continue their playing due to financial or other challenging circumstances.
About the Christmas Challenge
The Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest online match-funding campaign which helps UK-registered charities raise funds for their projects. The Big Give offers supporters of participating charities the chance to have their donation doubled when the Christmas Challenge goes live between 12pm on Tuesday 28 November and 12pm on Tuesday 5 December 2017. For example, a £100 online donation made to a participating charity during the Christmas Challenge can be doubled to become £200.
Over the last 6 years, London Music Fund supporters have helped the organisation to award 425 four-year scholarships and to fund 32 large-scale projects, reaching over 9,000 young musicians. In total, over £1.7m in grants has been given directly to support music education in London.
