How can I take donations through my website?

The internet offers new opportunities for fundraising and there are lots of ways for charities to generate money online.

Your supporters can use sites such as Justgiving or bymcharity to raise funds when they are taking part in bike rides, marathons or other activities. They will use your charity number to nominate you, so make sure it is easy to find on your website. The site owners take a cut of what you receive, but they will also add Gift Aid to recover UK tax paid by the donor.

Individual charities can also set up their own pages on these sites and link to them from their own pages.

Charities Aid Foundation provides various services at CAFonline, online auction site eBay helps charities to raise money whilst services such as everyclick and easyfundraising pay you when your supporters use their services.

    The reply would benefit by starting off with a direct answer to the question, for example:
    “Place a link on your website to your fundraising page on a site like Justgiving.com”.
    Then talk about the background and options etc.
