Charity number: 209603
Description: The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. RNLI lifeboats at 237 stations around the UK and RoI rescue an average of 24 people a day. RNLI lifeguards patrol over 220 beaches in the UK and Channel Islands in season. The RNLI receives no funding from the UK government, and depends on the generosity of the public to save lives. Training and equipping the charitys lifeboat crew and lifeguards is not cheap, and we need your support! The vast majority of RNLI lifeboat crew members are volunteers, ready to drop everything and go to the aid of others day or night, whatever the weather. The RNLI runs education and safety programmes, aimed at preventing people from getting into trouble on the water in the first place. There is also an RNLI Flood Rescue team, with specially trained volunteers ready to help out in inland flooding emergencies at home and abroad. A charity registered in England and Wales (209603) and Scotland (SC037736). Registered charity number 20003326 in the Republic of Ireland.

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!
