TheGivingMachine, a not for profit social enterprise that helps online shoppers give for free with every purchase at no extra cost to them personally.
TheGivingMachine.co.uk is the only UK registered charity that enables people to raise money for their chosen schools, charities and other local causes at no cost to them, simply by shopping online and generating free donations from their favourite retailers. Being charitable means we can focus on maximising the amount shared with your school - just compare the % on our website to others.
Every time an online shopper makes a qualifying purchase via TheGivingMachine website, a sales commission is generated. With the addition of Gift Aid, an industry leading 85% is converted into a free donation. This means shoppers can raise money for their favourite school or charity without the donation costing them a penny.
Over 2,000 of your favourite retailers are helping us to help you make a difference - Amazon, eBay, Sainsbury's, Next, John Lewis, M&S, Viking, Argos, Sports Direct, the trainline.com, Boden to name just a few. So far, 95,000+ shoppers use TGM's portal.

"After checking that we were getting the very best price, I recently booked a holiday with Expedia via TheGivingMachine. I was absolutely delighted to discover that booking via TheGivingMachine meant that I had made a £91.04 donation to the causes I love. I support The Bishops Stortford High School and Motor Neurone Disease Association. Shopping via TheGivingMachine enables me to support my favourite causes without costing me a penny and makes me feel good in the process." - Claire, Representative for The Bishops Stortford High School
