Virgin Money Giving is a not-for-profit company created by Virgin Money to help charities raise more. Whilst you can't run a fundraising website for free, you can do it without making a profit – keeping the costs down for everyone.
So we can keep developing our service and supporting charities, we simply ask for a small one-off payment from charities when they join, then charge a 2% platform fee and a 2.5% payment processing fee on donations.
We're the only platform that allows donors to cover 100% of a charity’s fundraising fees and because we process Gift Aid free of charge, if the donor covers a charity’s fees, they receive 100% of the donation, plus the Gift Aid, entirely fee-free.
