Why do so many charities choose us?

Powerful fundraising tools

Fundraising pages

Built to promote your brand and story, our fundraising pages help people rally their friends behind your cause. Fundraisers can easily connect with Facebook, personalise their page with a target, story, photos and video. Spread the word easily with popular tools like Facebook, WhatsApp and email. And with our App fundraisers can quickly check their progress and thank their supporters along the way.

In memory fundraising

We provide fundraising pages tailored specifically to help people raising money for charities in memory of a loved one. People can fundraise for you individually or link together fundraising pages of friends and family raising money in memory of the same person.

Campaign pages

Start up a new campaign in minutes and raise the money you need for a specific project or appeal. People can donate directly to the campaign or link their fundraising pages to it, helping you reach more people.

Create events and collect entry fees

Create a customisable event page in minutes, telling attendees when, where and what the event involves. We take the hassle out of collecting the event fees and Gift Aid, and let you choose which account the money goes in to. Your event is automatically posted on our website, and can be shared through direct links and on social media.

Reporting and data management tools

We give you information about your donations, fundraisers and payments through our simple reporting tool or you can connect your data directly into your CRM database.

Want to know more?

Here are some of the more commonly asked questions by our charities.

Charities need to have at least one bank account registered with us so we can process donations, but you can add as many extra bank accounts as you like.

You can choose to have different accounts for different fundraising events or one account for everything – it’s completely up to you.

Yes – whenever someone makes a donation or sponsors a friend we’ll ask if they’re eligible for Gift Aid.

If they are and agree to claim Gift Aid, we’ll reclaim the Gift Aid from HMRC and it will be passed on to the charity in full.

Gift Aid is the simple way to increase the size of your donation, and because it’s reclaimed from the Government it won’t cost you any extra.

Find out more about Gift Aid here.

Donations are paid to charities once a week (less our fees).

We reclaim Gift Aid from HMRC and pass it to charities in full once a month.

To find out more about how we process donations, please read our help guide.

See a breakdown of our charity fees.

Remember, because Virgin Money Giving is not-for-profit our fees are just enough to cover our operating costs. Should we make any money over and above this in future, we’ll always use it to reduce our fees further or improve our services. Also these fees only apply to charities – it’s completely free for fundraisers and donors to use our website.
