Receiving online donations all year round

All donations made to charities registered on the Big Give are processed by our partners at Charities Trust.

Charities Trust is a UK registered charity (no. 327489) that strives to grow the UK giving market. Their innovative work is driven by the aspiration to enable more individuals, charities and companies to raise more money, more efficiently.

As a not-for-profit organisation, Charities Trust aims to keep its fees as low as possible. Any surplus is reinvested into their products and services to improve the delivery of their work. It is for this reason that a 4% processing fee is charged on each donation paid via the Big Give.

The Big Give is committed to delivering a secure and efficient service to charities and their donors. This is made possible by the work of our partners at Charities Trust. The services, people and technology funded by the small processing fee ensure donations and our users’ information is handled responsibly and in line with best practice.




The Big Give’s partnership with Charities Trust was recognised at the 2015 Third Sector Awards when we were awarded the title of ‘Best Charity Partnership’.

Stella Smith, one of the judges, said “This entry is a great and innovative initiative that has been particularly well executed.”

Alex Day, the Director of the Big Give was delighted at the result and commented, “It demonstrates the trust and respect the sector has for our partnership with Charities Trust. We hope to go from strength to strength to continue delivering added value to charities, donors and philanthropists across the country.”
