JustGiving launches free donations service

Just Giving has launched a free service to help charities collect donations from their own websites, as well as via social media and email.

Giving Checkout offers charities the chance to add a donation service to their own sites and fundraising through adding a web link or Donate button.

Charities accessing the service can also download a QR code to add to direct mail, fundraising packs as well as collection buckets for contactless donations.

The online fundraising platform says the service is free for charities to use with no fees.

Among charities to have already used the service, which launched this week is the RAF Museum. It’s individual giving manager Abi Bettridge said: “Giving Checkout is really simple to use, and our donors can make a donation in just a few clicks! The 0% fee is something which really resonates with them and has driven up the donation value.”

This latest move follows the removal of platform fees by JustGiving in 2019 to be replaced with a voluntary contribution model for donors.

Earlier this year JustGiving announced that £180m had been raised through its pages to support communities impacted by Covid-19.

This includes support for food banks, community organisations and NHS charities. Among the most notable campaign was the recording breaking fundraiser by the late Captain Tom Moore.

Charity Times has compiled a list of top online fundraising platforms for charities.

Not only does the report highlight an overarching sense of positivity towards the sector, but a propensity for younger generations to give more generously, too.

The importance of the ‘S’ in ‘ESG’
In this episode, Lauren Weymouth is joined by Ketan Patel, equities fund manager at EdenTree, to delve into the issue of social investment and why that all-important ‘S’ in ESG is more relevant now than ever before. The social element of ESG often gets forgotten when thinking about investing in more ethical and sustainable ways. But, after a challenging year for all areas of society, social injustice has been highlighted, and there’s a much greater need for charities to put people at the heart of their investment decisions.
