Make a Donation - changing the future of giving

19 March 2015 15:14

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Make a Donation is changing the future of giving. It’s the only UK fundraising and crowd-funding site where 100% of donations reaches the charity. Unlike all other sites, make-a-donation.org doesn’t charge charities any fees or commission and never will.

make-a-donation.org is unique. Whilst all other sites (including JustGiving) charge up to 6.3% in fees, make-a-donation.org doesn’t charge charities any fees whatsoever. In fact, make-a-donation.org even pays the bank transaction fees for charities, something that no other fundraising site does. Why? We are passionate about fee-free fundraising and our vision is to change the future of giving in the UK. We want fees for charities to become non-existent and our platform is proving that this is possible.

How does it work? make-a-donation.org is supported by the business community. Our business partners and sponsors effectively pay the fees normally charged to charities, which means that charities get every last penny of their hard-earned donations. Support from business partners also enables make-a-donation.org to thank the generosity of givers with exclusive offers. The crowd-funding side of the site benefits from this too, as charities are welcome to use rewards on our site if they are struggling to find prizes for their crowd-funding campaigns. All in all, make-a-donation.org is an innovative platform that enables givers, charities and businesses to work together effectively. Paralympic gold medallist and ambassador of Make a Donation, Naomi Riches, comments ‘I’ve been an ambassador for Make a Donation for a number of years now. I got involved because it’s such a simple and really powerful way of raising money for charity’. David Finch, CEO of Make a Donation, adds ‘It’s great that charities and their givers can use online tools to increase the amount they raise, but it’s wrong that commission and fees are deducted from donations. With the help of the business community, we aim to change that and ensure that all donations are received in full by the charity.’

make-a-donation.org was born out of a passion for charity fundraising. Therefore, not only is it committed to providing fee-free fundraising for charities, but also to pioneering change in the way giving is paid for in the UK.
