About us

Our funding.

We rely on donations made through Pennies as well as funding we receive from foundations, trusts and individuals, to help us realise our mission.

How we’re funded.

Pennies receives a small percentage, up to 10%, of each voluntary donation made through our digital charity box. This helps us fulfil our charitable objectives, invest in the technology, grow the movement, offer more micro-donation opportunities and support more charities.

In time we can become self-sustaining but in the meantime we receive funding from foundations, individuals and other organisations. The support of these organisations is helping us reach more merchant and technology partners, support more charitable causes and ultimately make our vision a reality.

A percentage of each Pennies donation

Receiving a small percentage of each donation allows us to maximise the immediacy of our social impact.

Foundations, trusts and individuals

Investment from these sources helps us grow the movement, leveraging our income for the benefit of the third sector.

Donate direct to Pennies.

We also accept voluntary donations from members of the public. If you would like to support Pennies’ mission to protect and grow micro-donations and help us invest in the tech to unlock millions more donations for charities, you can donate directly to our work with a one-off donation.

Your donation to Pennies is in turn helping to raise vital funds for hundreds of charities across the UK, Republic of Ireland and beyond.
