Back in 2012 the widely read and highly acclaimed morning paper, City A.M, raised £4.4M as part of its Christmas appeal.

They ran their first Christmas appeal back in 2011 and in that year raised £1.58M, so you can imagine how trilled they were to beat this impressive total by so much last year in 2012.

The team at Want2Donate were curious about how many UK charities have developed apps for smartphones. So we started to download a load of them and thought we’d do some write-ups along with some screenshots which you can see in the gallery below.

Charities and apps

As apps became the next big thing with the uptake of Apple and Android smartphones, many charities flocked to the space and built an app just to see what happened. From what we had seen even before we did this deeper investigation, some appeared to be better thought-through than others.

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.

Please get in touch if you would like to ask us a question.

Is my donation to charity secure?

All donations, animal adoptions or child sponsorships are exempt from tax and carried out through secure encrypted connections.

Are my details safe?

Want2Donate do not know, nor hold any information about you. Any donation you make is between you and the charity you choose. Learn more in our Privacy Policy.
