Small Charities Week

FmDRIhsKSmall Charities Week celebrates and raises awareness of the essential work of the UK’s Small charity sector who want to make an invaluable contribution to the lives of millions.

In celebration of Small Charities Week 13th-18th June we’re giving away a £100 donation to the small charity who accumulates the most new Give as you Live shoppers during the week!

We’ll send you a special set of weekly resources at the start of the week including assets to share on social to remind your supporters to sign up and use us to raise FREE donations for your charity every time they shop online!

Here’s what’s taking place this Small Charity Week:

Day 1 – I love Small Charities Day
A day to raise awareness of the work of all small charities across the UK. A great opportunity to engage current and new supporters and to raise your profile to the broadest audience possible. Start preparing your activity now and let your supporters know what you are planning through your communications.

Day 2 – Big Advice Day
Big Advice Day will take place on 14th June 2016, involving a national London event and various regional events across the country where small charities can access expert 1 to 1 advice on a variety of topics.
They have an array of brilliant experts signing up to share their experience and expertise in a range of different areas, including HR, legal, marketing, business planning and strategy, finance, leadership and more.

Day 3 – Policy Day
In the UK 97% of charities have an annual turnover of less than £1.5 million but in terms of impact on local communities here and across the globe their contribution is phenomenal. A way that you can get involved with Policy Day include using Small Charity Week as a platform – write to your local MP and invite them to visit your charity and see the work you do.

Day 4 – Fundraising Day
The perfect opportunity for small charities to engage with current and new supporters to get fundraising. Fundraising Day 2016 will take place on 16th June with plenty of free events, initiatives and resources for your charity to engage with.
