Creating positive change among charities
By Golden Giving | Friday, May 17, 2013, 16:26
Golden Giving (www.goldengiving.com) is a donation and fundraising website, free to use for charities, donors and fundraisers. We are the only independent free fundraising and donating site in the world that helps worldwide charities and good causes. Golden Giving removes the business cost and provides the tools required by charities to provide online donation and fundraising services.
Over £1 billion was donated to charity online in the UK alone, between 2010 to 2011. Up to 20% of every online donation is automatically deducted due to charity business management and operational costs, or due to the use of third party commercial organisations and their associated fees. If everyone had used Golden Giving to donate and fundraise for charity, then an extra £100 million to £200 million would have gone to charity front line causes. Golden Giving will not charge charities or donors subscriptions, set-up fees, or commission.
Charities rely upon donation and fundraising websites to provide the tools and services to raise money for their charitable causes. Golden Giving provides a range of fundraising tools, free of charge, to our charity partners, such as:
- Donation pages, which enables its charity partners to take donations online.
- Fundraising pages, which enables charity fundraisers to advertise charity fundraising events.
- Website widgets, which enables its charity partners to display donation and fundraising.
Please see below comments from our charity partners:

"We have chosen Golden Giving as our one and only fundraising tool. Golden Giving is an incredible tool for the charities." - NC TLC Trust

Golden Giving can provide its service free of charge, as it is sponsored by philanthropic individuals, public and private companies from around the world.
Golden Giving sponsors can take advantage of the business development opportunities provided by the Golden Giving Charity Marketplace. The Golden Giving Charity Marketplace connects commercial organisations, offering products and services tailored to the third sector, such us events organizers, bespoke insurance services, website, hosting and printing services, and legal and accountancy packages.
Golden Giving is supported not only by charities but also by businesses engaged in Corporate Social Responsibility; Golden Giving has reached the finalist stage for the category Social Enterprise of the Year at the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards 2013. Golden Giving has a personal approach and it is committed to bringing back ethical giving.
We hope all charities will take a step forward to move away from free charging sites and support the Golden Giving mission.
