Gener8 Finance has become the new sponsor of fundraising website Make a Donation, joining its vision to change the future of giving. The sponsorship will help to ensure that fee-free fundraising continues for all charities on the site.
make-a-donation.org is a unique fundraising website where 100% of donations go to the charity and no fees are charged, even bank transaction fees. This is all thanks to the help of the business community and sponsors.
This sponsorship also heralds the start of the business community acting with greater social responsibility, marking their desire to support the third sector in a more effective way.
Gener8 Finance’s managing director, Dave Richards said: “Gener8 Finance is really pleased to be able to support the Make a Donation team in their mission to deliver fee-free giving throughout the UK. We believe it is important for businesses to link into the communities they live and work in, and by working with Make a Donation, we can not only help those closest to us but also all charities looking to raise money.”
David Finch, CEO of Make a Donation, adds: “Our vision is to be raising at least £100 million per year, for 8,000 charities, supported by 40,000 business outlets and 6 million fundraisers and donors by 2025. Deducting commissions is wrong, charging fees is wrong, so we’ll never do this. Plus, we increase all donations not just by Gift Aid, but also by paying all bank transaction fees charged to charities. With the support of Gener8 Finance and others in the business community, we will change the way giving is paid for. We call it #morethanjustgiving.”
