Announcing the Charity of the Year finalists

CotY Finalists 01

The votes are in and the public have spoken. We now have our three Charity of the Year finalists for this year’s JustGiving Awards and there’s just over two weeks to go until the big night where the charity that received the most votes will be crowned the winner.

Let’s meet the finalists!

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Around 36,000 elephants are poached for their ivory every year. That’s one killed every 15 minutes. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust protect threatened species in Kenya through mobile vet units, anti-poaching operations, the rehabilitation of elephant and rhino orphans and community outreach.

Save the Rhino International

A shocking 749 rhinos have been killed in South Africa this year alone. Save the Rhino International’s vision is for all five rhino species to thrive in the wild for future generations. Collaborating with partners to support endangered rhinos in Africa and Asia, they raise funds, work with local communities and build awareness of the need for urgent global action on rhino conservation.

Thank you to everyone that voted and good luck to all the finalists!

We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for charities, with over 10,000 people voting for their favourite cause. Each and every one is worthy of an award, but sadly there can only be one winner! Be the first to find out who the winner is by following the action on the night on Twitter using the hashtag #JGawards. We will also be announcing all the winners here on the JustGiving blog on Thursday 24 September.

Don’t forget that your charity could still be in with a chance of winning our Most Popular Campaign Award, with a prize of £1,000.
