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
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.
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.
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.
Technology unlocks giving
Our payment and technology partners ensure retailers can enable the digital charity box, and across multi-channels. We are always keen to unlock more potential for UK charities.

Lots of people would associate giving time, money and resource to charity with feeling good and the positive reinforcement it brings. But what else does giving to charity do for us? International Day of Happiness got us thinking about some of the other positive effects doing good for charity can have.
For the second year running, we’ve made February a time to share and celebrate the impact of the Pennies community. Here’s some final thoughts on what Feel-Good Feb is all about from our Chief Executive, Alison Hutchinson CBE.
Why it works
It's simple to use
Customers see a Yes or No option on the card machine or online checkout
No added till time
Pennies is self-prompting and requires no explanation from staff
Pennies, not pounds
We know that people prefer to give in smaller amounts, but these pennies add up
Pennies can work across offline, online and in-app points of sale
It’s always the customer’s choice
To give or not to give, it’s always up to the customer
No data collected
There is no data collection – and therefore no charity follow up
