A video to answer some of your questions, as well as a list of most frequent questions and our answers.
Give Today source donation items from a number of suppliers and aim to make sure all items are of good quality, delivered quickly, come from reputable and ethical suppliers, and are priced fairly. Often our partner charities request the exact items and suppliers they want to use on their shops.
After your purchase, your donation is ordered from the supplier. It is then delivered by their reputable couriers directly to the door of the charity you chose to support. If you purchase a donation before midday, your items might even arrive the very next working day!
As Gift Aid is purely for monetary donations and therefore, unfortunately, you are not able to apply Gift Aid for your purchased item donations. You can find out more information here – https://www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/gift-aid
Good question – We get asked this a lot! Give Today do not charge charities, so not through that. We also do not profit from donations, so not that either. Give Today is funded by kind contributions from the public and through funding from GMCVO. In the near future we are going to be partnering with local businesses to sponsor our platform.
You can add a contribution to Give Today at checkout and they are all hugely appreciated to keep us going!
