TheGivingMachine is easy to use

Regular donations for your charity, school or community group without having to ask for money!

Your supporters simply shop online via TheGivingMachine and we convert the referral commission we receive into donations for your charity/school/community group.

  • Firstly, it’s FREE money and why wouldn’t your cause want to benefit from a regular and free income stream?

  • Asking your supporters for a change in their behaviour rather than for money is far easier

  • We are a charity ourselves and as a team have children at school and are involved personally in local clubs and charities.  We really want to help you get the most out of TheGivingMachine.

How it works

TheGivingMachine is a unique registered charity that enables shoppers to generate sales commissions with every online purchase.  We convert these commissions into free donations for schools, charities and other community organisations.

  • Your existing supporters join to shop online through us, creating a new income stream at no extra cost – to you or them.

  • Every time one of your supporters buys something online via a link on TheGivingMachine, we convert the sales commission they generate into a donation for you.

  • You gain new supporters, too – by promoting yourself to our thousands of daily visitors through your free online profile and our customisable promotional material.

Every year, online shops pay millions of pounds in sales commissions to other websites that direct shoppers to them.

TheGivingMachine works by turning these commissions into donations for your cause – at no extra cost to you or your supporters.

Your supporters can support up to four causes – like schools, charities and community groups. This means that even if you approach a supporter using TheGivingMachine to support another cause, they can easily add your cause into their account.

We’re a UK charity, which means we’re focused on making a difference rather than keeping shareholders happy. We pass on much more than commercial alternatives.

Thousands of schools, charities and community groups are raising funds via TheGivingMachine.
Here’s are some of the testimonials we have received 🙂


Aylesbury Grammar School Performance

Autism Allstars

‘TheGivingMachine is the easiest way to raise funds that we’ve ever found. The reminder that pops up when you’re shopping on one of their partner sites makes it so straightforward, and it’s a lovely feeling to think that your everyday shopping is making a genuine difference to the lives of people living with autism. Thank you SO much for everything you do for us!’
