TheGivingMachine receives commission for referring customers to online shops. When someone clicks from our website, mobile app or desktop reminder app to a retailer and makes a purchase we receive a percentage of the total purchase price – this is generally known as affiliate marketing. We then pass on up to 50% of that commission to the causes you are supporting.
Over pizza and beer the concept of TheGivingMachine was born, and an early website created. Free donations for causes in Bishop’s Stortford started to flow. In 2007, TheGivingMachine expanded to support causes further afield.
The Social Enterprise Mark was awarded to TheGivingMachine in 2010 and registered charity status was secured in 2014.
