The JustGiving Awards return to the UK this September and the hunt has begun to find our next Charity of the Year AND the Most Popular Charity Campaign – a new category for 2015.

Two awards, two chances to win £1,000

The winner and two runners up for each award category will be announced at our JustGiving Awards ceremony on Wednesday 23rd September 2015. Plus, we’ve got £1,000 donations up for grabs for the winners and £500 donations for the runners up!

Put your charity in the spotlight

This is a unique opportunity to gain public recognition for the hard work of your employees and volunteers. Here’s what you need to know about each award category:

1) The Charity of the Year Award gives the public the chance to vote for their favourite charity and show how much your cause means to them. Voting opens today on our Facebook page and you’ve got until Sunday 23rd August 2015 to receive as many votes as you can.

To help you get your supporters voting for you we have created a set of banners and buttons for you to add to your website, Facebook page and emails.
