KidsOut shows donations go further with MyDonate
KidsOut, the UK charity dedicated to bringing fun and happiness into the lives of disadvantaged children, has published a table on its website that compares the cost to charities of using popular donation sites, including MyDonate.
The comparison of the costs associated with MyDonate and other online donation providers can be viewed here. It shows that a £10 donation that qualifies for Gift Aid and is paid by a credit card translates to the charities receiving £11.74 with one leading fundraising site – but with MyDonate, this figure rises to £12.37.
David Cosham, chief executive officer of KidsOut, says: “Today it is more important than ever that charities raise as much money as possible to help the disadvantaged. With government funding reduced and people feeling the pinch it is very important that we remember those less fortunate than ourselves and all do our bit”.
