  • Funding history

    Comic Relief is a UK-based charity that strives to create a just world free from poverty. Its mission is to drive positive change through the power of entertainment. Since being launched on Christmas Day in 1985, live on BBC television, Comic Relief has raised millions of pounds through two big fundraising campaigns: Red Nose Day and Sport Relief. That money is used to tackle the root causes of poverty and social injustice. The idea is simple: Comic Relief makes the public laugh as a way to raise money to help people in desperate need.

    In 2012, Comic Relief raised GBP 2.5 from their Sport Relief campaign.

    In 2013, Comic Relief pledged GBP 5 million from their Red Nose Day campaign.

    In 2014, Comic Relief pledged an additional GBP 3 million from their Sport Relief campaign.

    All of Comic Relief’s contributions are matched by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, bringing the sum to GBP 21 million (USD 33.6 million).

    Contributions and pledges in total:

    • GAVI Matching Fund (2012-2014): USD 16.8 million (GBP 10.5 million).
    • Matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation: USD 16.8 million.
