JustGiving for churches


The National Churches Trust and JustGiving are working together to make it easier for you to fundraise.

Online fundraising

just giving logoThrough our special partnership, churches, chapels and meeting houses can join JustGiving for FREE, giving you access to the whole  JustGiving platform, and saving the usual £15 a month subscription fee. Churches that already have a JustGiving subscription are also eligible to take part, although fees already charged will not be refunded.

A transaction fee of not more than 5% of the gross donation amount will apply to online donations made on a church’s JustGiving charity fundraising page.

Text giving

Whatever network you're on, JustTextGiving by Vodafone (supported by the Vodafone Foundation, charity number 1089625) lets anyone donate to you by text.

It's free, easy to set up and every penny goes to charity. When you join you will also be given a special code, to which people can text to make a donation.

Gift aid
