Localgiving.com lets you find and give to local charities and community groups, even those too small to be registered with the Charity Commission or OSCR. Each charity or community group has been validated before registering with Localgiving.com, so you can be confident that your donations are going to bona fide charitable organisations.

Both of Localgiving.com’s shareholders are registered UK charities committed to promoting communities and helping them thrive by providing continuous support and recognition.

Localgiving.com’s fee covers the maintenance of the system, processing of donation payments, and customer care. Any surplus made by Localgiving.com are required to be given back to the two shareholders, both registered charities whose objectives are to encourage local philanthropy in the UK.
