What we do

Charity Checkout changes the way charities connect with their supporters online.

We connect charities of all sizes with their donors by putting them in control of their online fundraising. Our technology allows for seamless event registration, fundraising capabilities and the collection of online donations all under the charity’s own brand.

We work with over 3,000 charities and process millions of pounds in donations every month.
