Charities to further boost revenue streams when supporters change providers

London (23 May 2016) – Give as you Live has launched a new charity initiative, Give as you Switch, that will boost fundraising for all UK registered charities.

When a charity supporter compares and switches their car, home, pet, bike, travel, van, breakdown, or energy provider with Give as you Switch, they’ll raise up to £17.

The Give as you Switch service is free to all UK registered charities and supporters, as the donation is made by Give as you Live out of commission received from the insurance providers. Simple to use, supporter can enter details about themselves and the policy they want, and receive quotes from dozens of providers so they can compare premiums and features. Those using the service can also notify Give as you Switch of their renewal dates to ensure they have plenty of time to raise even bigger donations.

Give as you Live is connected to all UK charities through the Charity Commission therefore any charity can benefit from the new service – from Cancer Research to the local scout group.

Annabelle Risdon, Head of Charities at Give as you Live, said: “Energy and insurance are essentials for all of us and is something we all should be reviewing each year to ensure we have the right premium. By launching Give as you Switch, we’re hoping to make switching providers simple and give families an opportunity to save, all the while boosting revenue for charities with up to £17 per user. At no extra cost to the supporter, it’s a simple way for people to give back while improving their own circumstances, Give as you Switch expands our portfolio of fundraising products that help boost a charity’s revenue stream through innovative technology.”
