At Charitecards we have a genuine belief that charities should receive a greater benefit from the sale of charity cards. Recognising that a substantial amount of the cost is in the manufacturing traditional paper based cards, ecards provides a great alternative that maximises the return for the charity, and reduces the environmental impact.
We are a UK Based company but we are happy for people to use this service and support the charities listed from anywhere in the world. Unfortunately the Gift Aid tax advantage will not apply to oversees users.
This site has been developed on a voluntary basis and we have worked hard to keep our external costs to a minimum. The fee we charge is primarily related to third party credit card transaction costs and taxation. We are please to have a Co-operative Bank Community DirectPlus account which provides us with free banking, the Co-operative bank also prides itself on being an ethical bank and provides generous support to charities. We also receive excellent support from TSO Host who have provide the hosting for our web site. They are a company that share our philosophy of providing a great service and we can't recommend them highly enough.
Fortunately due to the current Gift Aid arrangements most people will be able to ensure that the full amount of their donation can be received by the charity. All donations are forwarded to the charities on a quarterly basis along with Gift Aid statements to enable the charity to claim the Gift Aid from the Inland Revenue.
All of the charities on this website have given their full agreement to be supported by Charitecards.
Charitecards has no direct association with the charities listed, their details are provided to simply aid your selection.
