Celebrating your fundraising successes with MyDonate

Success stories

In 2016, 2,200 new fundraising pages were set up every month and some 10,000 charities fundraised commission free through us. We always love to hear from our happy customers and we wanted to share some of these charities success stories with you and to thank you again for choosing us.

Anna Clarke, challenge event coordinator, at UK-based charity AiDS Orphan: “My Donate has been crucial in our growth over the past 2 1/2years. It has allowed us to fundraise for our challenge events offering a free platform that doesn't take commission - an important consideration for us as a small charity. It's provided a platform for over 100 fundraisers and an easy way for their friends and family to donate.”

Isabelle McKay-Smith, fundraising and communications manager at DigDeep: “The lack of commission fees has been a great selling point to our supporters, showing that we are protecting the funds that they raise and not wasting money that would otherwise go to our work in the field. We’ve also found the team at MyDonate to be really helpful in resolving any issues we’ve had and supporting us as a charity.”

Sophie Langman, head of corporate partnerships, Cancer Research UK: “Many people don’t realise that Cancer Research UK receives no government funding for its research. We rely on the generosity of our supporters to fund the vital work that we do and that’s why having a commission free model for MyDonate is so important as it means more funds go straight to Cancer Research.”

We’re making improvements to MyDonate all the time, to make it faster, slicker and easier for you and your fundraisers to use.

We’re always keen to hear your feedback on MyDonate, so if there are any changes to the platform that you’d make if you were in our shoes, then do drop us an email at bt.my.donate@bt.com.
