Virgin Money Giving turns 5

Virgin Money Giving 5th birthday

We are delighted today to be celebrating our 5th birthday.

We launched on 14 October 2009 and in just five years over 9,000 charities have registered with us and over 425,000 fundraisers have used the site to receive donations.  Our goal has always been to help charities raise more, and we’re very proud that we’ve been able to make that happen.

A massive £300million has been raised through Virgin Money Giving for UK charities and, because we are 100% not-for-profit, an extra £10million went to charities than if those fundraisers has used other fundraising platforms. And if that isn’t impressive enough, a massive 86% of donations through the website have been boosted by Gift Aid – which we don’t take a penny of.*

You can have a look through previous blogs to meet some of the amazing fundraisers who have used Virgin Money Giving, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for competitions and all our latest news.

    A huge thank you for your generous donation and your support. My approximate total stands at £2600 for North Devon Hospice , for which I am truly grateful. The whole adventure was amazing , not least the sunny dry weather , but I enjoyed every step , the company I met along the way, I would do it all again if I had the opportunity. Many thanks Margaret
