About us


It’s completely free for fundraisers and donors to use our website – this page details our charity fees.
Because Virgin Money Giving is not-for-profit, our charity fees are just enough to cover our running costs. We ask for a one-off payment from charities when they register with us and take 2% of donations. Gift Aid is reclaimed from HMRC on behalf of charities and passed over in full – we don’t make any charge at all on Gift Aid.
Here’s what happens to a £10 donation with Gift Aid added and fees deducted:
Your donation£10.00
Gift Aid£2.50
Transaction fee @2%£0.20
Card processing fee @1.45%£0.15
Total cost to charity£0.35
Total donation£12.15
The card processing fee of 1.45% applies to all cards except American Express which is 1.6%.
Please note, the charges for business credit and debit cards are the same as the charges shown above.
The PayPal processing fee is 1.6%.
