Charges & fees
Give as you Live is a fundraising platform to help charities raise donations and to empower a growing nation of fundraisers.
It's free for charities to join - there are no sign-up fees or monthly subscriptions. It's also free for your supporters.
When your supporters buy an instore card from one of our listed retailers, as a 'thank you' for sending sales to them, our retailers pay us commission, from this commission, we make a donation to you.
Charities receive at least 50% of the commission we receive from retailers. Let's take an ASDA card as an example - we say that you can raise a 2% donation there. We actually get paid a 4% reward by ASDA which is split 50:50 - so we get 2% and the charity gets 2%.
Because we also get a share, we are able to offer our services for free to both members and charities.
We'll pay donations raised through our giftcard and instore products to your charity every three months providing over £4.65 in donations has been confirmed up to the end of that quarter.
If your charity hasn't reached £4.65, donations roll over until they do and then get paid in the next quarter.
There are no setup or monthly fees to be registered as a charity on Give as you Live Instore.
A charity must have registered status in order to be listed. We are able to accept charities registered with the charity commissions for England & Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. In addition, we can accept organisations registered as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) or Community Interest Company (CIC), and any organisation recognised by HMRC as eligible for Gift Aid.
As part of the setup process, charities must provide bank details in order to receive payment. These bank details are then subject to our verification process which must be passed before a payment is made. We do not accept private bank accounts.
