Fidelity Charitable will be the first charity in the UK to accept online donations for its 2018/19 fundraising season, with a number of different categories of donations being offered to the public.
These include a £50 gift card, £100 gift card for a one-off donation, and a £250 gift card which allows a donor to purchase goods and services from the charity directly.
A £50 donation will be given at the charity’s annual general meeting, with the charity saying this is the first time that people can receive this kind of support from the community.
The charity said it is also launching a new donation section on its website, with people able to choose from a range of charities and charities’ partners, including Oxfam, Oxfam Europe, Oxfords UK, OxFlex, the National Union of Teachers, and the Charity Commission.
The new section will offer a selection of charities’ fundraising activities and campaigns, including a series of live events, and it will feature a number more charities.
“It’s not just a charitable donation; it’s a social service contribution, a business contribution, an environmental contribution,” said Helen Brown, executive director at the charitable group.
“And people can make a donation to charities to help those in need.”
The charity’s online donations page has also expanded its reach and includes a number options for people to make a contribution.
“There are a lot of charities in this country that we don’t have the time or resources to look after ourselves, so we’re making a real difference,” said Brown.
If you’re a parent or grandparent, we’ve got a donation available for them too, if they need it.””
For those people, we have a donation for their kids, or we have one for their mum.”
If you’re a parent or grandparent, we’ve got a donation available for them too, if they need it.
“The charities website also has new categories of charities, with new initiatives such as an annual fund-raising competition to help charities raise funds and charities with specific fundraising goals.”
What makes Fidelity’s Giving Back page special is that we have the opportunity to help people find out more about a charity and then make a direct donation to them,” said the charity.”
This allows people to donate to the charity, make a pledge to them and make a real impact.
“Fidelity Charitably is the UK’s first charity to accept donations through the internet, with donations for the charity being sent to individuals, businesses and institutions.
The organisation also announced a number new initiatives this year, including the introduction of its online Giving Back campaign.
In 2018, Fidelity Charity will be donating £1 million of its annual general fund to charities, including providing a free holiday to a young person in need, and donating £50 to Oxfam to support Oxfam’s work in the region.
The Fidelity charity is a charitable foundation which is managed by Fidelity Investments, with each individual donor receiving a percentage of the money donated.
The charitable foundation’s annual meeting takes place on Wednesday 23 June.
