Give as you Live is a free and easy way to raise money for your favourite charity, just by shopping online.

Once you've signed up, you can browse our website for the store you want to shop with. Click 'shop now' to go to their website, then continue to shop as normal.

We'll then email you within 1-7 days to let you know how much you've raised.

You can support any of the 200,000 UK-registered charities.

Our charities range from big national charities to local schools, churches and social groups.

The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.

With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.

Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.

It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.

We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, Technology Trust.

You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.

As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.

We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.

We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live, which is free to all charities and users.

All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
