Charities receive 100% of donations from new multi-store gift card

A new multi-store charity gift card, which combines giving presents with giving to charity, has been launched in time for the Christmas shopping period. The innovative product is the first of its kind for the charity sector.

Charities and non-profits can sell CharityCASH’s new gift cards, which come fully branded for each participating charity, simply by including a link on their website.

CharityCASH’s nationwide network already allows charities to instantly accept cash donations from over 35,000 locations across the UK.

Its new cards are offered at two values: £50, with £10 plus GiftAid going straight to the charity; and £25, with £5 going straight to the charity. The user can then spend the rest of the funds at most major UK retailers, including Amazon, Boots, Debenhams, House of Fraser, Halfords, Topman, Waterstones, Argos and hundreds more.

The card programme requires no technical work to implement and guarantees that charities receive 100% of donations and Gift Aid straight away. Everything is hosted by CharityCASH, which also handles all payments and fraud issues, as well as phone and email customer support.

The UK Christmas consumer gift card market worth over £1.5 billion each year alone and on average, people who buy gift cards for Christmas purchase four at a time, so the new scheme offers a great opportunity for charities to raise donation income at this time of year.

The CharityCASH team have a few remaining slots to get charities up and running in early November in time for Christmas. If you’re interested in getting involved, you can contact them using the form below:
