Fees

As a registered charity we keep our fees to a bare minimum. Nevertheless, there are invariably some administration costs incurred in the process, for which we take a minimal commission.  We are a registered charity, so any surplus fees are donated to humanitarian and environmental causes.

Like everything else about SmartGiving, our fee structure is simple and transparent, with no hidden charges. There is no joining or membership fee either - just a minimum deposit  of £50 when you open your account.

Please note that fees are taken per deposit (or "top up"), and not cumulatively. This fee is charged on the gross donation amount (including the Gift Aid).
