Mobile donation platform for culture scraps fee

DONATE was launched in 2013 by the National Funding Scheme to make it easy to make donations to cultural causes using a mobile phone. Currently adopted by some two hundred arts and heritage organisations across the UK, it is claimed to be the only UK digital giving tool to combine SMS text giving, web app, QR and Near-Field Communication technology in a single platform.

As an incentive to fundraisers, NFS is scrapping its 4 per cent commission fee and absorbing all credit and debit card transaction costs from a minor share of any eligible Gift Aid throughout the rest of August and September – with a view to this becoming a permanent feature of DONATE.
