Shop as normal and the retailer donates a portion of your spend to us. You don’t pay a penny extra.
Whether you're buying a new outfit, flights, computer equipment or furniture, we'll have the right retailer for you!
We decided to raise money by doing something to really challenge ourselves by swimming the English Channel week commencing the 7th August 2017 on a spring tide. We're doing this as a 5 person relay team. We started this journey to show the children at Southbroom Infants School that with ambition and effort you can achieve anything, no matter how daunting it may seem at first. The children are taught 'If you try, try, try then you can, can, can’ and we're definitely putting this into practice! At the end of 2015 we began our training, with some of us literally starting from scratch and it's been tough but we are determined to reach our goal of successfully landing in France no matter what it takes. By the time August comes around, we will have completed 3 10k river swims (either as solo swimmers or as a relay team), The Bude Sea Pool Channel Challenge and endless hours in lakes, pools and of course the sea. Cold water training has been essential and the Cotswolds lakes and the River Kennet have been a great resource with water temperatures as low as 5 degrees! We will be swimming in basic swimwear, no wetsuits allowed so we will be up against the elements...and the jellyfish! What we have experienced and sacrificed personally is insignificant to some of the challenges faced by the people who will benefit from any money we raise.

Is there any cost to the challenger or to the cause?
No, GoRaise is completely free to use for challengers and causes. The only cost is to the retailer
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Will we end up paying more for goods and services?
No, you are not charged anything extra. You buy directly from supplier websites accessed via GoRaise so you pay the same as anyone else. In fact – our users are able to take advantage of many exclusive offers and promotions so you will often find a better deal with suppliers through GoRaise. If you have a preferred supplier not currently listed on GoRaise.co.uk, please let us know and we will help them sign up.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Which causes can we raise money for?
You can support any good cause, from small community groups, national charities or your own company foundations. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added very easily for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, company foundations, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
