Charity: The Manta Trust
Charity number: 1145387
Description: Our Vision: A sustainable future for the oceans where manta rays thrive in healthy, diverse marine ecosystems. The Manta Trust is a UK registered charity, that aims to co-ordinate global efforts to research and conserve manta rays, mobula rays, and their habitats. We act as an umbrella organisation for manta researchers from over a dozen new and established projects from around the world. In addition, we bring individuals from a variety of other backgrounds; photojournalists, filmmakers, media specialists and celebrities. Doing so unites their voices and provides them with the means to work collectively towards a common cause - the conservation of mobulid rays and our oceans. Our charity takes a multidisciplinary approach to the worldwide conservation of mantas, mobula rays and their habitats. We use robust science and research to make informed conservation management decisions, whilst also raising awareness and providing education to the general public, to governments, and to community stakeholders. If you'd like to learn more about manta rays, our research and conservation efforts and how you can help (aside from using Give as you Live), pop on over to our website. :)

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

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, The Online Foundation.
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 Online, 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!
