Zero fees, zero fuss: Charity fundraising made easy

No platform, transaction or Gift Aid fees. Say hello to our brand new 100% free charity fundraising feature, making us the only major platform to ensure that every penny raised for charity goes to charity.

Yes, you read that right! Fees, forgotten. Today, we launched a new feature on our site for fundraisers who want to raise money for charity and not get stung by fees. This may sound obvious, but other major dedicated fundraising platforms such as JustGiving and GoFundMe have always and continue to charge fees.

You see, we know that you give it 100% when you’re fundraising for a charity that’s close to your heart. That’s why when you fundraise with us, we give 100% too.

There’s over 20,000 charities already on our site to choose from. All you have to do is select your charity, make a page, and get going! 

Plus, if you’re one of the first 50 people to raise £20 towards your charity then we’ll give you a £20 pledge on your project.
