Do good. Feel good.

Pennies is an award-winning fintech charity making giving accessible, affordable and feel-good. Our digital charity box is all about giving your small change a big purpose, and making a meaningful difference.

How Pennies works

Retailers join

Give your customers the chance to make their pennies count for your chosen charity. We work closely with your payment provider to enable Pennies across multichannels, in-store, online, or app.

Become a Pennies retailer

Customers donate

Customers are prompted by the card machine, website or app checkout to donate a few pence. It’s a yes or no choice, and neither Pennies nor the chosen charity receive any personal data.

Where can I donate?

Charities receive donations

Pennies collects and distributes the money digitally donated at the checkout. We make those pennies count for registered charities all across the UK, as chosen by the retailer.
