How it works

Build giving into your business

Giving back via the day to day of your business is a simple and visible way to link giving to your success.

• Hatchlings Makes donates 10% of every order to wildlife conservation charities
• Pattie & Co donates £5 from the sale of every Organic Cotton Muslin Swaddle to Tommy's baby charity
• Plans with Purpose donate 2% of their fees to charities related to their work and passions

However to be able to link donations to the sales of goods and services, you are required by law to negotiate a "commercial participation agreement" with the charity or charities you wish to support before you start promoting or talking about your giving publicly.

Unfortunately not all charities are able to do this for smaller businesses, unless the business is able to donate large sums of money. Our platform has solved this and as a member, you can digitally create this legal agreement in seconds with any charity and start making a difference to the causes you care about with no minimum donation amount.

Four steps

  1. Sign up with us

    It only takes a few minutes to register. If you want some help, you can watch our short tutorial video here.

  2. Choose how you want to give

    A day of your time, a percentage of your fee or sales, a set amount when you hit a target – or whatever and however you want. If you need inspiration, see how other businesses choose to give and we're on hand to help too.

  3. Choose your charities and donate online

    Choose from our list, or nominate a new charity. Or let your clients or people decide which causes to support, to make them feel part of the story. When it’s time to make your donation, we’ll remind you by email. And we can email your clients (if you want us to) to let them know when it’s gone through.

  4. Share your story

    Wear the Work for Good mark with pride, to show the world what you stand for. And share your story online. Blog, tweet, make it social – we’ll share your stories too.

Still not sure how you'd like to give?

Here are some ideas:

  • Give a day

    Choose a day and give all or a percentage of whatever you earn on that day.

  • Give through your fees

    Give a percentage of fees for a specific client or project to a specific cause.

  • Give through your sales

    Give a percentage of sales from one or all of your products or services.

  • Give when you succeed

    Give a percentage or set amount when you hit your targets.

  • Give in your own way

    Choose to give whatever you want, however you want, to whoever you want.

What it Costs

Our annual membership fee gives you access to our site and the right to use the Work for Good mark.

If you have 250 people or more in your business, membership costs £750 annually.

We deduct 5% from donations to support our work to raise even more funds for charities. We connect them with businesses who want to give, take out the costs of fundraising and free up their time to focus on what matters most.

There’s no processing charge for donations paid by BACS. If you donate by card there is a small charge (20p+1.4%) which goes directly to the payment processing provider. Prices don’t include VAT.

Our money back guarantee: We're confident that you will find Work for Good a valuable tool for your business. However, if for some reason you don't feel that it's right for you, let us know within 90 days and we'll refund your membership fee.

By giving through Work for Good we show our customers that our business isn’t just about profit, we really do care about their causes
