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 members.

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