Your small contribution can make a big change in someone’s life


Who are Make a Donation?

Did you know that all other sites (including JustGiving) charge up to 6.3% in fees? We have been passionate about fee-free fundraising since we began. We make no profit from donations, we will only deduct 2.5% to cover the costs of and related to, the processing of those donations. This means that a charity will receive 97.5p of every £1 donated.

How does it work for your charity?

We seek the support of businesses to effectively pay the costs of our business. In return, they are not only obtaining exposure, they are supporting local, regional and national campaigns to help good causes. In doing so, they fulfil their corporate social responsibilities which, it is accepted, is now an integral part of modern business.

Why Donation Is Required

A donation is a gift for charity, humanitarian aid, or to benefit a cause. A donation may take various forms, including money, alms, services, or goods such as clothing, toys, food, or vehicles. A donation may satisfy medical needs such as blood or organs for transplant.

  1. Experience More Pleasure
    In research conducted by the National Institutes of Health2, participants who chose to donate a portion of $100 they were provided enjoyed activated pleasure centers in the brain. Although this experiment was controlled and scientific, it did show that donating money simply makes you feel better, which is something we can all benefit from.
  2. Help Others in Need
    We don't live in a perfect world, and there's never going to be a perfect time to give—but there are always people out there in need of help. Whether interest rates are rising, the economy is in the doldrums, or even if you're experiencing financial difficulties of your own, the reality is that when you donate your money, you help others who need it.
  3. Get a Tax Deduction
    If you give to an IRS-approved charity, you can write off donations on your tax return. Certain restrictions do apply, though. To learn more about them, along with whether or not a particular charity has IRS approval, check the IRS website or The Life You Can Save’s fact sheet about tax deductibility. Donating your cash is a great way to reduce the amount of money you send off to Uncle Sam, and for a good cause, to boot.
  4. Promote Generosity in Your Children
    When your kids see you donating money, they're much more likely to adopt a giving mindset as they grow up. I write from personal experience. I've donated money to a variety of charities over the years and have always made sure to inform my eight-year-old son of my efforts. Last Christmas, when he and I were shopping at a mall, he spotted a kiosk for a charity and rather than spending some of his allotted money on Christmas gifts, he asked if we could sponsor a hungry child overseas. We signed up then and there. Do the same with your kids and you might see similar results.
  5. Realize that Every Little Bit Helps
    You don't need $10,000 to make a difference in someone's life. In developing countries, even just a few U.S. dollars could result in a week's worth of meals for a starving child, much-needed medical attention, and even improved schooling. Don't just think of your cash donation from an American economic perspective. Often that money can go a lot further elsewhere in the world.

What We Can Do With The Small Contribution

Have you ever felt the need to escape the monotonous merry-go-round of mediocrity that we live in today? Or have you ever wished that the world was a better place to live in?
Nelson Mandela has rightly said that “As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality prevail in this world, none of us can truly rest.

We can help you take small but crucial steps towards achieving the larger goal of creating a better world, which we think is the most fundamental choice that each one of us needs to harness. However, we also understand that the choice and the chance to create a change in this world is very hard to come by.
