eBay’s My Favourite Charity offers £7k for charity

PayPal Giving Fund UK is running My Favourite Charity on eBay this month, offering the chance to win up to £7,000 for your charity.

The prizes will be awarded to those charities that receive the most ‘favourite’ votes during October. 

On eBay users can support their favourite charities, by donating some or all of the income they make from buying or selling items online. To do so they simply search eBay’s charity directory and click the ‘Add to My favourites’ button. This charity is then featured whenever they buy or sell on the site, with a prompt to make a donation.

My Favourite Charity prizes

The charities with the most favourites at the end of the month will win cash prizes:

  • 1st place – £7,000
  • 2nd place – £3,000
  • 3rd place – £2,000
  • Top small charity (under £1.5m turnover) – £2,000


eBay for Charity
