Fundraising news, ideas and inspiration for professional charity fundraisers

TheGivingMachine

TheGivingMachine

TheGivingMachine is a unique UK charity and social enterprise raising funds for thousands of UK based good causes, enabling companies, customers and communities to thrive together.

With so many fundraising events cancelled during 2020, fundraisers are under pressure to find new ways to fundraise more than ever before. Our online fundraising options can help your cause raise those vital funds.

 

Shop&Give

We're on The Giving Machine

Shop&Give, our flagship service, unlocks hidden online sales commissions to become free donations for schools, charities and other community organisations across the UK. 

By unlocking this free cash we enable supporters to generate a recurring income stream for schools, charities and other social organisations.  With over 7,500 causes registered and raising money via TheGivingMachine we impact schools, pre-schools, Scout groups, small local charities alongside the well known national charities including Cancer Research UK, Mind and the Alzheimer’s Society for example.

Every year online shops pay hundreds of millions of pounds in sales commissions to other websites for referrals. People search for a product or service on the internet, or maybe visit a comparison website, click on a link and then make a purchase. In many cases, they generate a sales commission for somebody else, but in the case of TheGivingMachine, we convert those commissions into free donations for causes chosen by the shopper. And being a charity means we can give the causes the highest % possible. This is currently up to 60%.

The Giver can choose to support up to four causes at a time and customise their percentage split. Any UK cause whose primary purpose is for public benefit can join for free with regular amounts building up to generate large amounts over a period of time. Every good cause matters and we want to help them thrive.

Our members decide who benefits and so far we’ve generated £1.8 million for over 7,500 causes and it has not cost anyone, a penny extra.

With over 2,200 of the best online shops participating, it’s easy to turn online shopping into free cash to help others.

It’s free to register as a cause with TheGivingMachine, you will have your own cause page and promotional materials to help you spread the word and let your supporters know they can raise funds for you without it costing them a penny extra. Cause payments are made monthly to all cause with a balance of £15+.
