Research from Bacs Payments Schemes Ltd has shown that money donated by Direct Debit across a year is worth more than other methods of donation.
20% of the 902 adults surveyed had an on-going Direct Debit in place, compared to 6% by text and 5% through a giving network.
Bacs’ charity sector specialist Graham Callaghan said: “Encouraging people to sign-up to Direct Debit could increase levels of giving, but it also makes it cheaper and more efficient for charities to process these payments, so it really is win-win.
“The potential for increasing these benefits across the sector is significant and we can provide support to organisations in offering Direct Debit as a preferred payment option.”
