DONATE enables your friends and supporters to make an immediate donation using their mobile phone, to bid in a silent auction or enter a text-based raffle. We charge just 4.5% (+ 22p for web donations) of the donation*. That’s it. It covers the cost of card processing (usually around 2%) plus a tiny fee for our administration costs.
* When donors add Gift Aid we do even better and send on 114% of the donation.
** See our FAQs for further information
Beyond standard donation facilities, the DONATE platform opens up new sources of income via silent auctions and text raffles. Other providers can charge anything up to £5,000 to setup your silent auction. Our platform has no fixed costs.
Non-charities can use the DONATE platform too, but they pay 5% fees to cover the additional scrutiny checks.
Our low fees mean that as much as 95.5%* of their money goes where they intended – to the charity of their choice.
