Search on GoRaise for the retailer or product that you want, and click out. It's that easy.
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 are a registered charity and remain committed to fostering interest about, preserving, interpreting and displaying what we can of Saddleworth’s history. We are also involved with many aspects of community life, including education, provide a venue for local groups as a community resource and we provide a visitor information service. The fabric of our premises is in urgent need of a major refurbishment and update. Last year, following our third attempt, we finally succeeded in obtaining Heritage Lottery Funding to carry out the development work for the project which would include a major redisplay of the museum exhibitions, disabled access, new shop / reception and improved storage for our collections. This is a major investment and requires that we obtain match funding ourselves up to the value of £100,000.
Please request a donation document and a addressed envelope for use to return your donation . If you do have any questions please contact us by visiting the museum, asking to speak to the curator (or a trustee although we may not always be on site). You could also visit our website, “News” page at http://www.saddleworthmuseum.co.uk, contact the curator, Peter Fox, on firstname.lastname@example.org, post your questions to the Saddleworth Museum, High Street, Uppermill, Saddleworth, Yorkshire, OL3 6HS or telephone us on 01457 874093
The museum opened in 1962 and this is a personal message from our founder.
Like us all as we grow older, the museum site is in urgent need of a major refurbishment and update. To this end Heritage Lottery Funding has finally been obtained and we now require your help to contribute to our match funding project before our plans can be made a reality. Any response to our appeal, no matter how large or small, to take the museum into the future in good health would be most appreciated.
Roger Tanner MBE DL
We value your attention and sincerely hope you are able to support the museum in the match funding project we are undertaking to take us into the future.

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
