What is it and why do you need one?

Sales based fundraising is a truly sustainable way for businesses to raise vital funds for charity, whilst demonstrating their values to their customers and clients.

Sounds simple, however according to charity law; when a business is donating to charity through their sales, they are known as ‘commercial participators’ and they must have a legal agreement in place with each charity they want to support before starting their fundraising campaign.

This is called a Commercial Participation Agreement, which sets out some basic terms for both parties to agree to and must include:

  • 30.png

    The charity name

    Which charity you are raising funds for

  • Calendar.png

    How you'll be fundraising

    Specify how you’ll be raising those funds and over which time period

  • Money.png

    Your fundraising target

    How much you estimate you are likely to raise and the due date of payment.

How we make it simple

Setting up these individual agreements can take precious time and resources for charities and can therefore be a little tricky for smaller businesses to navigate.

But we believe everyone should be able to turn the work they do into good. Through our fundraising platform, small businesses can create their Commercial Participation Agreement with their chosen charity, via our easy to use donations form, in just a matter of minutes. We also generate the commercial participation statement, another charity law requirement; which businesses must include at the point of sale.

Work for Good makes it quick, simple and legal, for small businesses to donate to charity and for charities to receive these valuable contributions.
