Our Fees explained
Online donations made to charities are a very effective way of donating to support your friends and family or a cause close to your heart.
DoItForCharity.com charges a 5% transaction fee on just your donation ( the amount you donate online excluding any Gift Aid). Our processing bank Barclays applies a 1.78% fee for credit cards and 22p for debit cards and our payment service provider SECpay charges 20p per transaction regardless of what type of card is used.
Your donation is paid into a totally separate holding account and is sent to your chosen charity at the end of every week automatically. This helps to reduce the administration for charities and the costs involved in processing manual donations by cheque for example.
DoItForCharity.com separates the donation from any possible Gift Aid as this must be claimed at a later date and goes directly to the charity with no fee attached.
