If you are a UK registered charity or a charity exempt from registration, TheGivingMachine™ can create an important new revenue stream and communications channel for you. Every charity is competing for vital funds to do its good works, yet it is harder to find new, cost-effective and sustainable ways to achieve this.

Free to both charities and shoppers, TheGivingMachine™ is the modern-day rattling tin collecting regular donations from a diverse support base whose common connection is online shopping.

From only 100 average spending online shoppers, your charity could generate £1,500 to £2,000 a year. With 1000 shoppers, donation levels can rise to £15,000 - £20,000 annually - at no cost to the Giver or you!

  1. Online shops in the UK are currently paying out around £1Bn a year in commissions. Our aim is to redirect that money to charitable causes.
  2. TheGivingMachine™ has over a hundred of the UK 's leading online retailers registered to the scheme who donate a percentage of the total purchase to UK charities and schools registered with the site.
  3. Every giver that registers with TheGivingMachine™ creates an account that includes the UK charities and schools they wish to donate to.
  4. The site enables online shoppers to click through to their favourite retailers. Every purchase they make triggers an automatic donation (typically 5% of the total bill) paid to those good causes they have selected.
  5. Each month, donations received for your charity via TheGivingMachine™ are aggregated and paid to you according to each Giver's individual preferences.
  6. All it requires from you is the time to complete the online registration form and promote the scheme to your donors, volunteers and staff via your regular communications channels and events. The more shoppers you encourage to join, the more donations your charity receives.

We hope we have created a simple system to help you get the maximum return from the scheme.

  1. Setup Charity Account via the left hand menu link
  2. A member of TheGivingMachine™ team will verify your registration and ensure we have the correct details for you before you go live.
  3. Once you are live, tell your entire support base to do their online shopping via TheGivingMachine™ and start generating new income for your charity.
  4. If you require them, legal agreements are exchanged verifying all the arrangements (we have a standard template).
  5. Donations are sent monthly directly to you. You can review your account status at any time via the Report page.
  6. We have different Promotional Materials (see menu link) and tips that are free for you to use to help your charity promote the scheme to supporters (staff and donors and anyone else who knows and loves you!).
  7. TheGivingMachine™ is also developing its own communications tools to help keep the Giver community informed and involved. We will tell Givers how their donations are making a positive difference, as well as inviting them to support their local charities and schools in other ways that you tell us about. Along with raising vital funds, we hope this cross-communication between all Givers will also bring you new supporters and help foster a wider giving community.
