Make a Donation

Voting opens to celebrate star fundraisers

19 October 2015 15:15

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Make a Donation is launching the MaD Awards for the first time - offering a unique opportunity to celebrate star fundraisers and win their charity a £1,000 donation. The decision is in the public’s hands, with voting opening in November to decide the winner.

Priding itself as being the UK’s only fee-free fundraising platform, make-a-donation.org is passionate about making a difference to charities. It’s a little known fact that other fundraising sites (including JustGiving) charge charities up to 6.3% in fees, whereas 100% of every donation reaches the charity at make-a-donation.org. And now Make a Donation is offering the public a unique opportunity to help star fundraisers make a real difference to a charity close to their heart. The first ever MaD Awards is taking place this December - with the chance for one superstar fundraiser to win their charity a £1,000 donation.

Superstar fundraisers have been selected throughout the year - whether these are people who have taken on incredible challenges for charity or who have raised amazing amounts through their fundraising. Now the selected shortlist of 12 have the chance to take their fundraising one step further and win their charity a much-deserved £1,000 donation. The decision lies with the public, who will choose which superstar fundraiser and charity will win the all-important donation. The online vote opens on 2nd November and the winner will be announced in December. Of course, Make a Donation will be cheering on the fundraisers all the way - offering opportunities to promote their cause and sending some special gifts to celebrate their achievements. Make a Donation ambassador and Paralympics gold medalist, Naomi Riches MBE comments, ‘Make a Donation really is different from the other fundraising sites out there - not only does it allow charities to receive 100% of all donations, but it goes that extra mile to support charities, donors and fundraisers. Community is paramount at Make a Donation, and for me it represents the future of online giving. I enjoy being an ambassador for them as they are a fun and supportive team who really believe in what they do and are passionate about raising money for worthy causes.’

Make a Donation is passionate about supporting charities and is becoming known for its personal approach to fundraising. The MaD Awards is just another little way for make-a-donation.org to support the third sector, but also enables the public to celebrate the amazing members of our community.

About Make a Donation

Make a Donation is the only UK fundraising & crowd-funding site where 100% of your donations goes to the charity. Whilst other fundraising sites (including JustGiving) charge up to 6.3% in fees, Make a Donation doesn’t charge charities any fees whatsoever and never will.

Make a Donation is so passionate about fee-free fundraising that it even pays the bank transaction charges for charities - saving a further 1.7% per donation on average, something that no other fundraising site does.

Our vision is to change the future of giving in the UK - we strive for a world where fees for charities are non-existent.

How is this possible? It’s with the help of the business community - whether it’s through sponsorship, an affiliate or a monthly subscription, our business partners help us pay all fees for charities.

Our business partners also help us reward the generosity of our donors and fundraisers by offering exclusive discounts for their brands.

In return, Make a Donation works with these businesses to improve their social responsibility, connect with their communities, enhance their brand and promote their offers to our community.

Make a Donation offers a simple, effective solution which benefits all involved. We call it #morethanjustgiving
