The Church of Scotland Guild has as its aim, ' to invite and encourage both women and men to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and to enable them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.' This is carried out in a number of ways; through congregational groups; the wider work of the church through support for a range of projects; co-operation with other churches and in bodies like the Women's National Commission and Scottish Women's Convention. The Guild offers opportunities for a Christian perspective and influence on current issues. Training events and programmes are offered to develop members' gifts and equip them for these responsibilities.
This inspirational movement has been around for over 125 years – originally a way to harness the energies of the women in the church, it is now an organisation of committed women and men with a global reach.
With some 25,000 members, it has made an impact around the world through its Project Partnership Scheme which, since 1997, has supported 36 areas of work alongside its project partners. Impacting on people on every continent of the world, except Antarctic, as well as those in the UK, this scheme has ensured members are praying for, learning about and raising money for the most marginalised in society – those affected by poverty, drug abuse, homelessness, civil war and genocide.
Alongside the national project work, Guilds round the country support and take part in community initiatives; making a difference in their own local area.
Membership of the Scottish Women’s Convention ensures the Guild has a voice into the Scottish Parliament and reporting directly to the Church’s General Assembly ensures the Church listens to what the Guild has to say – in recent times ensuring that the issue of people trafficking has been firmly placed in front of its members.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. 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.
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.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
