Big gifts - making a significant difference

Making a significant gift can make a fundamental difference; helping to change lives and ending poverty for good. 

Big Gifts, Big Difference Big gifts, big difference

Each year, Christian Aid's major gifts team works with dozens of donors to pick out the projects which most need their support. 'Making a significant gift to a charity can be a really big decision. If people are interested in investing in a specific type of work, say, clean water or reconstruction after a conflict, we sit down and work with them,' says Karen Aycinena, our Major Donor Manager.'We try to match people’s concerns with Christian Aid’s priorities and specific projects on the ground.

Philanthropy Philanthropy

Christian Aid recognises that many major donors and philanthropists seek advice and support from wealth intermediaries, from tax advisers to solicitors to financial advisers. Many of these intermediaries are themselves encouraging conversations with clients about philanthropy. Having seen this trend increase Christian Aid has launched a philanthropy service to support the wealth intermediary sector and their clients who are looking to invest in international development.
