Charity membership

Since day one, it's been important to us to make sure our service is accessible to charities of all sizes, no matter how big or small. We've spoken to fundraisers across the country to make sure we've conquered all the points that really matter to you. From matching your charity's brand guidelines through to giving you access to all your data, we've thought of everything.

Click through the points below to find out why you'll want to work with us:

✔ You’ll pay no subscription costs or joining fees

Our straightforward pricing model means that we only make money when you do. We think that's the fairest way to work, and it guarantees that you never have to spend more with us than you'll make back. We don't charge any subscription costs or joining fees - we simply deduct 5% from each donation to cover our costs. It is completely free for any UK charity to join us. Read more more about our fees.

✔ You’ll inspire and reach new supporters by adding a visual element to your fundraising appeals

Visual learners make up a large proportion of the population, so using images is an extremely powerful way to raise money. Don't just take our word for it - see what some of our charity members had to say about working with us. Whether you’re inviting supporters to shine a light for your awareness week or dedicate a virtual star in memory of a loved one, your page will come to life with each donation and inspire others to add their own stamp to the picture. If you have created an exclusive template, you can also invite individual fundraisers to create their own pages with the design.

✔ Your supporters will be able to create their own visual fundraising pages and raise money for you

Visual fundraising templates are a modern equivalent of the fundraising thermometer. The picture fills up as more donations are made, so it's a great way to show fundraising progress. They’re an ideal way for supporters to illustrate their progress towards a fundraising target - perfect for marathons, bike rides, events, and more. They’re also a beautiful way to celebrate the life of someone special.

✔ You’ll be able to completely customise your fundraising pages and create a fully branded experience

Including:
  • Adding your charity or campaign logo, and making this a hyperlink
  • Using your brand colours on the buttons and messages
  • Changing the questions on the donation form to match your style and language
  • Setting recommended donation amounts that are appropriate for your supporters
  • Updating the image and message that's displayed when supporters share your page on social media
  • Defining your own marketing opt-in preferences
  • Picking either the long or short version of the Gift Aid declaration to use on your donation form, so you can claim Gift Aid on your donations

✔ You’ll be able to add multiple users to your charity account for everyone in your team

You can enable or restrict each user’s account, depending on whether you want them to be able to make changes to your pages or whether they simply require read-only access.

✔ You’ll receive all your donor data and have full control of how you want your marketing preferences displayed

We securely supply all donor data when a gift is made. You can view this information immediately through the website or use our downloadable CSV reports.

Unlike other fundraising platforms, we give you full control of your charity marketing opt-in categories. You can configure the contact methods you use (email, post, telephone, SMS), and also define your specific opt-in contact reasons (eg. fundraising, research, news, etc) if you wish. We add a link to your privacy policy at checkout so your supporters can see how you will use their data, and this gives you all the control you need to comply with the GDPR. We will never pass or sell any data onto third parties. Read our Privacy Policy.

✔ You'll be able to create your own designs, as well as being able to use our library of FREE templates

Feel free to use one of our free fundraising templates if you want to test our platform and see if it works for you. Then, if you want to go one step further, our custom template service allows you to submit your own designs or commission us to design something unique for you (charges apply). All customs templates remain exclusive to your charity (and your supporters), and you can use them an unlimited number of times. You can read more about creating your own template designs here.

✔ You’ll receive all your donations directly and securely

We work with Stripe to process payments, which means that working with us is extra safe - your donations never touch our accounts, and instead they are sent directly to an account owned by you. Stripe is a PCI Level 1 payment service provider who are trusted by over 100,000 businesses worldwide. Many charities already work with Stripe to collect payments, so if you’re already set up, you can connect your existing account and get started. Or, if you’ve not yet got a Stripe account, we’ll take you through the very simple process when you sign up with us. Read more about Stripe Connect.
