What is the Community GiveBack campaign?

Our communities are supported by an incredible network of organisations. From schools, charities (both large and small), community groups, amateur sports clubs and social enterprises. They all need our help and that's why we created the Community GiveBack campaign - to help all UK based good causes.

Why do we do it?- here's just a few comments from causes we've helped.

  • "Because of the kind support and donations we receive, we are able to help change lives"
  • "We provide all of our services free of charge the donations we receive from TheGivingMachine makes this possible"
  • "they’re helping us care for some of the most vulnerable people in our society."

Our Community GiveBack campaign helps to fund these much-needed services allowing them to continue to make a difference and make the world a better place. 

100% of net proceeds will support the Community GiveBack Campaign.
