Charity: Watford African Caribbean Association
Charity number: 1144021
Description: The Watford African Caribbean Association is a small charitable organisation that uses local knowledge and decades of experience to transform the lives of the vulnerable, the elderly and children, whilst preserving African and Caribbean traditions. Our services help the elderly stay independent at home and more active in the community. We aim to inspire academic excellence and develop social responsibility in the children attending our school. We care for, help and empower our community.
Every donation helps Watford African Caribbean Association - what can they do with these funds?
Getting older can be isolating. £5 can provide the opportunity for an elderly person to spend a few hours with supportive people – enjoying talks, getting information, exercising, playing games, etc.

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!
