Our fees

Give as you Live Donate is a fundraising platform that aims to help charities raise donations and to empower a growing nation of fundraisers.

Unlike JustGiving and Virgin Money Giving, we have no setup or monthly fees meaning charities can utilise our Give as you Live Donate platform for free.

In order to cover our costs as well as keep developing our fundraising platform to support charities, we charge a low 1.9% platform fee and a 2.9% payment processing fee on donations.

We also allow donors the option of covering these small fees for charities. On average 80% of our donors cover this charge, meaning your charity will likely receive the majority of your donations in full with no charges.

The table on the rightbelow shows how our charges add up for a £20.00 donation.

Setup fees FREE
Donation value £20.00
1.9% platform fee £0.38
2.9% processing fee £0.58
Gift Aid supplement (If eligible) £5.00
Total fees on Gift Aid FREE
Without fees covered, your charity gets £24.04
With fees covered, your charity gets £25.00

We pay charities once a month via our payment technology partner, Stripe.

Gift Aid is subject to approval by HMRC, therefore the Gift Aid portion of the payment can take a few months.
