We apply a fee which is deducted from each transaction:
For the charity to receive your donations securely by PayPal a fee of 3.4% + £0.20 to transfer the funds applies.
Please see below for how we are working towards automating Gift Aid so charities can receive an additional 25p for every £1 given.
We charge a listing fee based on the number of employees:
£0.20 Per Employee
• Give through a dedicated branded landing page
• Ability to raise funds across the entire company
• Upload of custom e-card artwork, and more
We charge nothing to our charity partners:
• A new income stream with donations in lieu of cards
• Raise funds for occasions year round
• Add to your Christmas fundraising efforts
This year we've partnered with Shelter to offer corporate e-cards that include your company logo
• Send up to 1000 e-cards
• Option to upload company logo and send via CSV upload
Automating Gift Aid
Charities can claim 25p Gift Aid on every £1 donated, meaning they can receive over 100% of your original amount given.
We are currently reviewing how we can automate the processing of Gift Aid. This is in accordance with upcoming changes to the data protection act.
We're a light-hearted alternative to greeting cards, but we take data protection very seriously.
Processing times and what you are charged
Donations Made Instantly
DontSendMeACard makes each payment instantly. Meaning that charities receive donations right away.
What You Are Charged
You are never charged any additional amounts. You simply donate the amount that you want to and that's all that you will be charged.
What we do for our 5% fee
DontSendMeACard is a collaboration between graphic design and web development agencies Future Imaging and Web Engineer, both based in Exeter, Devon.
We’ve spent considerable time and resources building a top notch web application that offers an easy-to-use interface, with a secure payment gateway, and a host of tools for promoting and facilitating online giving.
We’re excited to be able to offer a solid platform that users can easily send e-cards and donate on special occasions in replacement of greeting cards. Running the website has overheads. Including:
- Building, continually refining, and monitoring the website
- Creating new features for users, charities and companies to raise funds with
- Customer support
We also have marketing and advertising costs.
Lastly we are continually building relationships with new charities and organisations, and developing website content including videos, blog posts, and imagery to communicate what it is and how it can be used. All of this involves office overhead.
DontSendMeACard is a social enterprise.
Quite simply, we can send e-cards and give what greeting cards and postage cost to causes that really need it.
DontSendMeACard is supported by The Dartington Hall Trust and Plymouth University.
UK Charities are jumping on board the venture! See the full list.
