Why we'd love you to help us champion the campaign with your charity network

The festive season is an exciting time when many small businesses will launch sales-based fundraising campaigns and increase their charitable donations.

The spending power at Christmas is huge and for a large proportion of the nation's 5.8 million small businesses, Christmas is when sales peak.

Small businesses have been vital in helping charities survive during the pandemic. By taking part in the Small Business Star campaign, businesses will continue to make a real difference.

Please help us inspire more charities to join the campaign this Christmas and raise more funds for the sector.

    Double their donation

    You can help us make an even bigger impact. This year we have a match funding pot of £50,000 to help charities raise even more funds. By paying their raised funds via their Work for Good account, from 9am on Monday 6th December, Small Business Stars will have their donations doubled* up to £250 per business, until the match funding pot runs out.
