Posted by theministry on 29th February 2024

BIG GIVE Update:

Wow! We did it! Our community of supporters have been so generous with our Big Give campaign this year!

We exceeded our original target of £10,000 and have raised a whopping £12,850 plus gift aid! Thank you! The donations will make such a difference to our community writing programme, which will include a London Landmark Takeover this summer, a Spy School this autumn, and young writer-led projects in Spring 2025.

Huge thanks to New Philanthropy for Arts & Culture for showing their support to arts and culture organisations by match funding the brilliant #ArtsforImpact Campaign. And hats off to the team at the Big Give for all their help and support.

The Big Give is back this Spring, with the chance to double your donation and have double the impact.

What is the Big Give: Arts for Impact Campaign?

Join us this March 2024 for the Big Give, a match-funding campaign which sees any donation made to the Ministry of Stories during 19th – 26th March DOUBLED, thanks to the generosity of New Philanthropy for Arts and Culture.

Double the donations means double the creativity, joy and opportunity for our young writers.

We believe creativity changes lives, and all donations made during our Big Give campaign will help us to continue to provide our writing programmes for free to local families; making sure our young people have fun, grow their confidence and discover the power of their imagination.

“Negev really loves Ministry of Stories. He feels really at home there, loves the company and the feeling of belonging. He really thrives from the free, playful, caring environment.’

Sara, parent. 


We’re aiming to raise £10,000 in just one week to fund three big, bold and exciting projects with our young people in 2024, building on from our escape room, comedy film screening and full scale poetry exhibition.

‘What tops an Escape Room?’ we hear you cry. We can’t reveal much yet, but we’ve been working closely with our young people and got some top secret* ideas brewing…

How can I take part? 

We would love you to make a donation to our Big Give Campaign which is live between 19th – 26th March. Please only donate on the link below.

You can also get your friends and family on board and even your workplace.

Any and all support matters and we are really excited about what we can create together. Thank you.

*Psssstttt well done, you got this far! This Autumn we’re launching a Spy School for budding agents in Hoxton. Think you’ve got what it takes? Meet back here in October and we’ll put you to the test. Over and out.
