Who is eligible to join JustGiving?

If you've got a charitable registration number or a Gift Aid number, you can join JustGiving.

So that includes charities, schools, churches, trusts, Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) and Girlguiding units (which includes Rainbows, Brownies and Guides).

How can a local branch of a UK charity join JustGiving?

To join JustGiving an organisation needs to be registered with the charity commission OR have a Gift Aid reference number obtained from His Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC). When signing up with a Gift Aid reference number, we will require official HMRC documentation confirming the organisation’s number.

Multiple charities are unable to sign up using the same charity number, the alternative solution would be registering under your individual Gift Aid reference number, also know as a HMRC charity reference number.

When you are on the signup page, please enter this HMRC Gift Aid reference number instead of a charity number in the Charity Reg No section.

To learn more about getting a Gift Aid reference number from the HMRC visit http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/charities/tax/recognition.htm.

To join JustGiving please visit http://pages.justgiving.com/causes.html and select 'Join Us'. This will direct you through to our online signup form.

Can UK registered charities join JustGiving without a Gift Aid number?

Yes, but it does make giving online less cost-effective and your charity will miss out on an extra 25% on eligible donations. Head to our FAQ on 'Can I still join if I don't have a Gift Aid number (UK only)' for more information.
