HOW GORAISE WORKS

Fundraising made easy

Who is GoRaise for?

GoRaise helps PTAs, schools, charities, sports clubs, girl guiding units, village halls, rotary clubs and more. As long as you are a group of people with good intentions that need to raise money, GoRaise is for you.

GoRaise also helps out people doing charity events such as marathon runners or skydivers, and boost company fundraising.

 

Getting started

Find your chosen charity or good cause from the 80,000 we already have on GoRaise, or add your own if it’s not listed.

Free and easy sign up with just a few simple details and you’re ready to start receiving your donations.

Visit this page to find your cause, or this page to add your cause.

You can also add your own individual charity challenge, or start doing a bit of company fundraising.

 

Feelgood Shopping

There are over 3,000 retailers that will donate to your cause. All you have to do is visit GoRaise before you buy anything, and search for a product or a retailer.

You click out to the retailer and shop as normal. Whether it’s your super market shopping, new shoes, holidays, stationary or a new bike, there will be a GoRaise retailer for you.

Donation Alert!

If you buy something online, you’ll get a nice email confirming how much you’ve raised.

The amount will depend on the retailer, for example  Sainsbury’s give 50p for every order, Topman 2.5% of your basket value and John Lewis up to 3.5%.

You’ll also have your own account area with a summary of your progress and all your donation history.

Raising more

The more people you get involved, the more money you raise! We therefore provide you with all the tools you need to get others to sign up and support your cause.

Your cause will have its own bespoke fundraising page, personalised video, posters, flyers and other marketing tools to help spread the word.

Most importantly though, we make it easy!! We all have busy lives, so we’ve worked hard to make it all effortless.

Donation reminder

We’re all a bit forgetful from time to time, and sometimes people forget to visit GoRaise before buying things online.  Which is why we’ve built the handy Donation Reminder.

This is a great little tool that you install on your browser (Chrome, Firefox and Safari), and it reminds you every time you land on a partner retailer.

Just click on ‘activate donation’ and shop as normal.  People using the donation reminder raise five times more!

Any questions?

See our Help Centre for more FAQs, helpful resources and GoRaise guides

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
