Support for fundraising - BT MyDonate

Support for fundraising

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.

Contactless donations

With contactless payments now overtaking cash, contactless donations are set to become a key part of charities’ fundraising strategies. MyDonate have selected services from Payacharity so that your charity can soon be taking advantage of this with a range of contactless donation boxes, card processing facilities and the right support specifically tailored for charities. Visit the Payacharity website to find out more.

BT Give As You Shop

We have teamed up with and 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.
