QR Code Fundraising
We’ve all become used to QR Codes over the last year. We offer this option if you have a physical location you want to use to raise funds.
Supporters scan with their phone cameras and are taken straight to your donation page. Rather than registering for ‘test & trace’ they can be supporting your cause - a great use of technology to give your charity a boost.
If you are interested, please contact us at: email@example.com
Fundraising couldn’t be simpler with WeGive. Just go to your charity page, make a donation (our research shows this acts as a trigger for others to do likewise) then share this Act of Giving with any and all of your social media and email contacts. Urge them to give right now with a short message saying what the funds are for.
The results can be surprising...and fast. Encourage your supporters to forward onto their friends and you can reach thousands of people in hours, particularly if someone with a stack of followers gets involved.
NB: WeGive uses Charities Trust to process your donations and to reclaim Gift Aid if eligible. Donors do not need to register with WeGive to donate although we do ask for some details to reclaim this Gift Aid. If donors register later, we will remember these donations as part of their tax record.

What is Gift Aid and should I claim it?Donating through Gift Aid means charities and community amateur sports clubs (CASCs) can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It will not cost you any extra. Most higher rate taxpayers are unaware of the sums remaining unclaimed or even that they can reclaim additional sums. Even if higher rate taxpayers do reclaim their higher rate relief, the connection to charitable giving is broken. Moreover, many transactions that are charitable in nature for tax purposes remain unnoticed or unlogged. Many tickets to venues such as the Tate or Regents Park Zoo are Gift Aid-able and therefore qualify for higher rate tax; regular church-goers will notice they are asked to tick a box on the back of their envelope so the church can reclaim Gift Aid; scout groups and community amateur sports clubs can claim for membership fees. Not many reclaim any higher rate tax due to them and potentially available for donation. Find out more at: https://www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/gift-aid
