House of Illustration & The Big Give's Christmas Challenge

As keen supporters of the wonderful work the House of Illustration does in promoting the art of illustration, we want to let you know about this vibrant charity’s current campaign.

At 10am on Monday 5th December the House of Illustration is joining The Big Give’s Christmas Challenge where every donation made online will go towards supporting their education programme, competitions, exhibitions and to pave the way for The House of Illustration to open its doors in 2013.

They have £16,900 of the £50,000 target left to raise – and through this campaign, any donation made will be matched by The Big Give.

You can click here to make your donation on Monday 5th December

Do get in touch with the House of Illustration if you would like to support them.

You can email: or go to their website here. Alternatively, telephone 020 7936 1280 for more information.

Additional information

  • All the money will go towards supporting the work of the House of Illustration; their schools education programme, nurturing new talent through competitions, exhibitions and talks and events.
  • Until their target is reached, every pound you donate will be matched by up to a pound from the Big Give’s match funding pot.
  • The maximum individual donation that is eligible for match funding is £5,000.
  • If a higher rate taxpayer donates £100, they can reclaim the tax on their donation (a 40% taxpayer can reclaim £25, a 50% taxpayer can reclaim £37.50), therefore the cost to them would be £75 or £62.50 respectively.
  • When you go online to give, you will be asked if your donation is eligible for Gift Aid; the total Gift Aid amount will be calculated at the end of the challenge and added on after the end of the week.
  • The Big Give releases a new pot of match funding every day at 10am. Therefore donors should make their donation as near to 10am as possible. The majority of match funding will be released on Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th December, so it is best to make donations on those days to maximise the chances of accessing the match funding pot.
