About us

Our partnerships

The Pennies micro-donation movement works thanks to support from partners across sectors. This includes partnerships with a number of key payments and technology organisations and exhibitions; helping us raise awareness of and demand for Pennies across the retail and payments technology industries. We are proud to have partnered with:

PayExpo Europe

2016 Charity Partner

PayExpo Europe is UK’s largest payments event, bringing together exhibitors, speakers and delegates from across the entire European payments industry.

In 2016, PayExpo Europe chose Pennies as it’s official charity partner; providing us a key speaker slot, a fully-branded lunch networking space, and an afternoon panel and debate session, where our retail partners talked about the importance of engaging customers in their CSR programmes.

The Emerging Payments Association is a community for the world’s most progressive payments companies. The EPA’s goal is to establish the UK as the global hotspot for payments innovation.

Pennies has had the opportunity to make a keynote speech at the Emerging Payments Awards 2015, introduce a new CSR award in 2016 and in 2017 win ‘Best CSR or Charity Initiative’ alongside K3 Retail. The Emerging Payments Association has chosen Pennies as their official charity partner.
