Dear friend,

This summer we have seen the impact of the climate crisis; whether it’s fires in Turkey, heatwaves in North America or floods in Germany and China. But countries in the global South have long been experiencing these impacts while also facing a raging debt crisis. As the UK hosts the global climate conference later this year, we are ramping up our debt justice campaign to call for debt cancellation to enable countries in the global south to tackle the climate crisis.
 
As a key supporter of Jubilee Debt Campaign and someone who has taken part in our annual matched funding appeal, would you consider pledging again this year? The deadline to make pledges is Friday 27 August, although as usual you are asked not to actually make the donation until the end of the year.
Make your pledge here

The Big Give Christmas Challenge has been a highly successful way for us to raise much-needed funds for our campaigns from new supporters and members of the public. The funds raised this year will enable us to sound the alarm bells about the debt crisis and make demands for debt cancellation to enable countries to tackle both the pandemic and the climate emergency.
 
Any amount (from £100) you pledge towards our target of £20,000 here could be QUADRUPLED in value!
 
Here’s how it works:

  1. Our key committed supporters like you, pledge a donation using the online pledge form here. We are aiming to raise £20,000 in pledges. The deadline is 5pm on 27 August 2021.  
  2. If selected, we may then be awarded up to an additional £20,000 in ‘charity champion’ funding by the Big Give themselves.
  3. During the online donation phase (30 November - 7 December), these pledges and charity champion funds are used to ‘match’ online donations from members of the public. The more that people donate, the more will be matched by your pledge or the Big Give directly.
  4. Last year we raised over £70,000 in total through match funding from the Big Give and donations from the public, which was a great return on the initial pledges of £20,000.
  5. Once the online donation phase is over, we get in touch with you and ask you to fulfil your pledge (or a proportion of it, if we didn’t meet our target). Pledges are redeemed between 7 December 2021 and 14 January 2022, using whatever method is most convenient to you.

Under the rules of the Big Give we need an initial amount in pledges for matching. This is why pledges are so crucial to helping us meet our target. By pledging now you are enabling us to potentially quadruple the value of your donation.

Register your pledge here by 27 August

We are really grateful for your crucial and ongoing support for Jubilee Debt Campaign and would be delighted if you are able to help us again in this way.
 
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Best wishes

-----
