So we’ve been bangin’ on about the Big Give, but what is it?

From midday this International Women’s Day, Tuesday 8 March – midday on Tuesday 15 March, SARSVL has the chance to DOUBLE any donations we receive up to £25,000 through the Big Give Women and Girls Match Fund initiative.

That means every pound donated through our campaign page between those dates will be matched by Big Give at no extra cost to the donor, having twice the impact for women and girls in Leeds. We’re doing this to fund new outreach work to underserved women, such as sex workers and homeless women.


How does it work?

  • Every donation received through this page from midday on Tuesday 8 March – midday on Tuesday 15 March will be matched by Big Give at no extra cost to the donor or SARSVL, meaning every penny received will make twice the difference:
  • The donation link will only appear at midday on Tues 8 March and donations can’t be received before or after the campaign week
  • Only donations made through the SARSVL Big Give campaign page by debit or credit card will be matched

How can you help?

  • 1. Save the dates now and make a donation through our Big Give page between midday Tuesday 8 March – midday Tuesday 15 March
  • 2. Tell all your employees and networks and ask them to support us that week
  • 3. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn, and share posts about our Big Give campaign from now through 15 March
  • 4. Print, display, share our campaign poster/flyer with QR code so people who want to can easily donate during the week
  • 5. Organise and publicise a fundraising activity or event at your workplace, for example: Organise a day at your workplace when everyone pays (and/or gets sponsored) to wear our SARSVL colours, purple and green, Host a Big Give Big Night In, with friends donating to SARSVL to take part or get sponsored to take on a physical or personal challenge, like shaving your head for SARSVL.

So what are you waiting for, get ready to celebrate IWD 2022 with us and raise money to support the survivors of Leeds.
