In the UK, we offer charities something quite unique. By combining our expertise in secure online payments with our call centre capabilities and the skills of our website developers and network engineers, we can offer fundraising services for free. Charities large and small are raising vital funds thanks to these free services, and the enthusiasm of our people.

MyDonate is a free online fundraising service. Unlike similar websites, our commission- and subscription-free service means all the money donated reaches the charity, apart from the small fee made by the donor’s debit or credit-card company. Our technology does the hard work to collect Gift Aid, also at no charge. This means you’ll get up to 63p more for every £10 donated, compared with other online donation services.
BT telethons and appeals
BT has been involved with pretty much every telethon and appeal ever run in the UK, helping to raise over £160 million in the last 10 years alone. If you see an appeal on television, it’s likely our technology and volunteers are involved.
Drawing on this expertise, we offer charitable organisations all the services needed to run a large appeal, including MyDonate for Telethons and Appeals. This springs into action for appeals run by BBC Children in Need, Cancer Research UK, UNICEF and the Disasters Emergency Committee, among others.
Other services include telephony, network capability, technical expertise, consultancy support, reporting, pre-event planning, post-event reviews… the list goes on.
If you’re interested in running an appeal in the UK and would like to know how BT might be able to help, please fill in a short online form to register your interest.
BT Tower Dining Club
The BT Tower is an exclusive, sought-after venue, and the BT Tower Dining Club represents a valuable and unique fundraising opportunity for charities.
Charities registered on and using MyDonate for at least six months can apply for a table for 2-10 at special events in the revolving restaurant on the 34th floor. These will be given for free to be used for fundraising through auctioning or raffling off a table of the table could be used for entertaining potential high-value donors.
Applications for the Dining Club will reopen on in April 2017 for events from June 2017 onwards.
New for 2017, we will be also be offering Afternoon Tea at the Tower. Applications for this will also open in late April 2017.

BT Give As You Shop
We have teamed up with easyfundraising.org.uk and spendandraise.com to make it really simple for your supporters to donate to you when they buy BT products online.
Just register your cause on one of the partner websites using the links below. Then encourage your supporters to nominate you as their chosen cause on these websites, and when they shop online for BT products at hundreds of participating retailers your charity will receive a donation. Our two partners work slightly differently so it’s worth checking which system suits your organisation best.
