Making it easier for you to receive donations from small businesses

We’re here to encourage you to embrace the sustainable fundraising opportunity that small businesses present and to support and equip you to do so, in an effective and proactive way that works for you and your organisation.

Purposeful small businesses want an easy and flexible way to give back to the charities that mean something to their business and a sustainable way for them to do this is by committing a £ or % of their sales to charity.

Work for Good allows you to enhance your small business fundraising stewardship and empower your supporters to fundraise in a more flexible way, via our supporter friendly Commercial Participation solution.

How does the Commercial Participation Agreement work?

The Commercial Participation Agreement (CPA) is integrated into our T&C's. By signing up to Work for Good, your charity will digitally enter into a CPA with any business who would like to support you.

The business enters into their part of the CPA when they pledge a donation to you.
