See why a £20 donation goes further with us than JustGiving

We believe only charities should profit from the hard work of fundraisers. It's why we set up Virgin Money Giving in the first place, as a not-for-profit alternative to challenge the status quo.

Whilst you can't run a fundraising website for free, you can do it without making a profit - keeping costs down for everyone.

Fundraisers and donors do not pay to use our website – this page details our charity fees.

Charities get all these benefits

It costs just £150+VAT to join and there are no monthly fees.
