What is Voluntary Contribution?

JustGiving is free for charities and fundraisers to use, so there are no platform fees. This means that voluntary contributions (like yours) help towards our running costs, give you a seamless donation experience, and make JustGiving the easiest place to raise money for good causes all over the world! 

Just know that this is completely optional, so if you do choose to make a contribution, it's in safe hands!

Here's exactly how we put it to good use:

  • Top notch service

    We're hard at work 24/7 making sure people in 180 countries can use our website whenever they need it. Our experts are always on hand to help fundraisers and charities raise as much as possible.

  • Making it easy

    Raising money for a good cause should never be difficult. That's why we send weekly payments to charities - getting your donations there faster. We do all the heavy lifting so you don't need to worry.
  • Staying ahead of the game

    We never stop looking for new ways to make donating online easier. With payment methods like Apple Pay, Google Pay and Pay with Bank Transfer, we've got you covered.
  • Safe and secure

    We're serious about your data and use the most up to date fraud protection technology. So you can trust that when you make a donation, your information is entirely safe and secure.

We are constantly looking at ways to improve this feature, from time-to-time this means we also run experiments in an effort to optimize the visitor experience. These may be small changes (like changing the look of our donation checkout) but we only release the features that prove effective! We are committed to providing an awesome and engaging experience for all users and rely on customer feedback and suggestions.

Didn't mean to leave a contribution?

No problem, just get in touch with our customer support team via live chat, email or here and they will be able to refund this back to you if your donation was made via Debit/Credit card, PayPal or Google/Apple pay.
