Why donate to charity?

There is a huge amount of injustice, cruelty, and carelessness in the world – from child abuse to poverty – and charities work extremely hard to change this. But they can only do this with our support.

Donating to charity can be a very powerful way to stand up for an issue that you feel strongly about. Charities have knowledge, expertise and influence to really make a difference, and donating to charity is one of the most effective ways to ensure your voice is heard.

How do I choose which charity to support?

Whether it’s animals, children or the environment, everyone has something that matters to them. Choosing a charity to support is a personal decision but we’ve made it easier by breaking down some of the UK’s biggest charities into subject areas. Here you can find out a bit more about what each charity does.

Tax exempt status of registered charities and online security

All of the charities listed on this website are registered with the Charity Commission in the United Kingdom. Like any business, charities have to submit Tax Returns to HM Revenue and Customs, but all donations are declared and the charities do not have to pay tax on them. This means all your donation to charity will help to further their vision and goals.

Registered charity numbers

Each charity's registered number can be seen prominently displayed on the bottom of their respective pages on this site and underneath their logos.
