Virgin Money Giving
Virgin Money Giving is a great tool to contribute to the EIC via fundraising or donation. It is EIC’s preferred online fundraising
Virgin Money Giving is a fundraising platform where you can collect money for a fundraising initiative online and assign all the funds directly to your Charity of choice (takes away all the paperwork).
Why use Virgin money giving?
You can set up a website for your EIC fundraising events.
You can set up a donations page for an organised event (for example the London Marathon).
You can make a donation to the Electrical Industries Charity.
You can contribute to sponsorship events or campaigns organised by others who are raising money
for the EIC.
Fundraisers and donors can be 100% confident that Virgin isn’t making a profit on their donation and that
more of their hard-earned cash is going to the cause they’re passionate about.
Charities get to know they’re paying the lowest fees Virgin Money Giving is able to offer (because the
business isn’t run for profit) and that they’re given the tools and information that means they can run
more effective fundraising campaigns.
and Virgin Money, who have invested millions of pounds in getting the website up and running,
benefits because more people know a little bit about them and what they do – something that never
does any harm in business.
So it’s really very simple.
