Make a Donation

Written on March 3rd, 2015 by and filed in Make a Donation News & Info

Did you know that Make a Donation is the only UK fundraising & crowd-funding site where 100% of your donation goes to charity?

All other fundraising sites (including JustGiving) charge charities up to 6.3% in fees on average. We’re passionate about fundraising and we believe that charging charities like this is wrong and it’s something we’ll never do.

Make a Donation is unique in the fact that we don’t charge charities any fees whatsoever – there are no commission fees and no set-up charges. Plus, we even pay the bank transaction fees for charities, something that no other fundraising site does. This means that your favourite charity will get every last penny that you donate.

Although 6.3% in fees doesn’t sound like much – it means for every £1m raised, charities will lose out on £63,000 in fees. And that’s no small sum!

So how is this possible? Both local and national businesses across the UK are supporting our cause and are helping to ensure fee-free fundraising at Make a Donation. Our partners can also reward the generosity of our donors and fundraisers with exclusive vouchers for their businesses – creating a highly effective community of charities, businesses and givers.

We have a bigger vision at Make a Donation too – we want to change the way giving is paid for in the UK. And we know this is possible, as our platform creates the opportunity for change. If you’re just as passionate as we are, why not spread the word about Make a Donation and help change the future of giving?
