Charity Overview

Chineke!’s motto is: ’Championing change and celebrating diversity in classical music’. Hear from founder Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE in the video below about why she felt creating the charity was needed.

Supporting The Chineke! Foundation through the Big Give

For those that don’t know, the Big Give was established by Sir Alec Reed in 2007, and the majority of its operating costs are absorbed by Reed. The Big Give provides an online platform to pair charities with philanthropists and philanthropic foundations (including the Reed Foundation). The supporting partners provide funds which are drawn from to match individual donations, essentially doubling the amount a person gives.

The Chineke! Foundation has received support through The Big Give in the past and will feature again in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2020.To find out more about our match-funding platform head to or to donate today to the Chineke! Foundation Donate to the Chineke! Foundation
