How it works

Make donating to charity part of your business

Collectively small businesses have the power to make a big impact on society and the planet.

All you need to do is sign up, choose a charity, and start donating. We take care of the legal admin - the commercial participation agreement - which is needed if you want to link your donations to your sales and promote your charity work.

Once that’s sorted, you can start to make a difference, engage your customers, and together we can inspire others to do the same.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Sign up

    It's quick (and currently free for the first year when you enter code 1YEAR) to become a member.

  2. Choose your charity

    Get your people and clients involved to help you decide which charity to support first. You can choose from our list or nominate a new one.

  3. Make a donation

    Set up a regular or one-off donation. If the donation will be linked to your sales, you'll need to be clear as to how you intend to donate - e.g. 5% of your sales or 20p per product etc.

  4. Share your story

    Add the Work for Good mark to your marketing materials and set up your profile to easily promote your giving. 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
