More than £250m raised through Virgin Money Giving

Since its launch in 2009, Virgin Money Giving has helped over 9,000 charities raise more than £250 million.

Donations through Virgin Money Giving have risen by over 11% year-on-year. It says that, unlike other online giving platforms, it only charges charities the minimum amount needed to run the site.

Jo Barnett, Executive Director at Virgin Money Giving said: “It has been a fantastic achievement by our fundraisers to hit that £1/4 billion landmark. We only launched in 2009 and are still a growing service, so to hit that level already is a great achievement”.
