How is TotalGiving™ Different?

The only way to 100% guarantee the charity receives its donations

Typically

When making a donation on any platform in the UK, the donor is paying the money to the platform with the agreement that the money will be passed to the charity under that platform’s terms.

Most platforms charge, some do this for free, but the underlying structure is the same, they all act as a middle man that collects the money and holds it on behalf of the charity.

Now for something completely different…

With TotalGiving™ and NowDonate™ you are actually donating directly to the charity, this means we do not handle any money.

This is a very big deal…

Not only does the donation get to the charity quicker, but your know 100% that it will reach the charity no matter what happens.

PLATFORM Time it takes for donated money to reach the charity
TotalGiving™ Instant
JustGiving Monthly if donated money is under £100
Weekly if donated money is over £100
Virgin Money Giving 2.5 weeks
Local Giving 2 - 3 weeks
The Big Give Twice a month
Global Giving Once a month
Global Giving UK Once a month
