HOW DOES GIVEPENNY WORK?

You register your cause to accept donations through givepenny.com

Your cause works with our team of FUN-Raisers to develop lots of new ideas for raising money online.

Whether it’s a virtual event, ongoing appeal or super-fun individual fundraising challenges connected to the world’s favourite apps and websites, GivePenny helps you pull it together and launch it (like an ideas-rocket).

Your supporters visit GivePenny to publish their online fundraising challenges and they go on to have lots of fun raising money for your cause, in new ways!

We are a tech-for-good company

When it comes to giving access to the GivePenny platform, processing donations and helping charities to claim Gift Aid where they can, we charge an annual subscription fee of £120, along with a small fee of 5% of each donation (including Gift Aid), which means charities only pay us when a payment is successfully processed.

To give an example of how a typical donation works, we charge just 63p to process a £10 donation and then also reclaim Gift Aid (an extra £2.50 in this example) on behalf of the charity.

Compared to other fundraising methods (that often require considerable upfront investment without a guarantee of creating donations) and considering our platform offers unique features that may help raise even more money for charity, we think that's incredible value.

People can feel safe in the knowledge we also work with PayPal and GoCardless to help us process donations. Their fees are as follows:

  • Debit and Credit Cards through Stripe: 1.4% + 20p (European cards)/2.9% + 20p (non-European cards)
  • Using your PayPal account: 3.4% plus 20p
  • Direct from your bank account through GoCardless: 1% and never more than £2

Here's an example of the fees for a typical £10 donation, when using using Stripe, PayPal or GoCardless:
