Charity Checkout offers regular online giving for small charities

Howard Lake | 8 June 2011 | News

Charity Checkout provides charities with the facility to set up custom payment pages for specific campaigns, and an online account where they can manage and track their donations. It pays out all the donations received in a single payment each month to each charity, with Gift Aid included. Charity Checkout is a new payment provider which offers small charities the opportunity to handle one-off and regular gifts online.
Launching Charity Checkout, its founder, Chester Mojay-Sinclare, said: “Whether you raise £1,000 a year or £100,000 a year, Charity Checkout provides you with exactly the same service. It is now possible for custom payment pages to be set-up in seconds, so charities can run micro-fundraising campaigns on Twitter or Facebook. For small charities, this kind of low-cost, targeted campaigning will help them find committed donors they didn’t even know existed.”
According to the CAF 2009 Giving Report, 37% of all donors give by recurring methods with £14 more being given when donated in this way.
There is a minimum donation of £3 accepted on the site, although it does accept one-off and regular gifts via Visa, Visa Electron, Mastercard, American Express and Delta, with Paypal to be added shortly.
One charity which has already signed up is Volunteer Reading Help. Fundraising Officer, Lewis Spiers, said:

Charity Checkout is a great way for us to manage our committed donors and run online fundraising campaigns. Their software allows us to set-up an unlimited number of branded payment pages. It’s easy to use and there are no up-front fees.”
