Charity Donations

We are proud of our status as the UK’s most generous cashback website and it seems our millions of members are following in our footsteps by helping others out through the cashback they have earned.

You may have noticed that when you request a payout from us, you are given the option to donate some, or all, of your cashback to one of the many worthy charities we support (click here to see the full list).

Well, you generous lot have certainly risen to the occasion as, in September of this year, we smashed through the £100,000 barrier in terms of the total amount given in donations since the scheme has been running - an amazing achievement which you should all be proud of.

By the end of this year, our members are expected to have donated more than £17,000 to various charities in 2016 alone.


Our Commitment to Helping Others

The TopCashback brand not only reflects values of working tirelessly to provide members with the best money saving deals, being agile in a competitive market and showing leadership in the field, but also of being ethical, charitable and innovative.

Each year, TopCashback staff members vote to decide on a charity the company will support for the subsequent 12 months, then hold numerous fundraising events throughout the year - everything from cake sales and a Grand National sweepstake to donning our seasonal sweaters on Christmas Jumper Day.

In 2015, TopCashback employees raised a grand total of £2,077.94 for the Alzheimer’s Society through fundraising activities, while so far in 2016, £1,226.89 has been collected for the RSPCA.

Bake sales in May and October raised a total of £262.62, while a Christmas tombola proved to be a huge success, bringing in a fantastic £165.50. Other events this year have included a football shirt day for Euro 2016, a Halloween fancy dress day and a PJs/onesie day.


How You Can Make a Difference

You can do some good as you shop thanks to our charity donation option. When you come to collect your cashback, you can choose to donate some - or all of it if you are feeling really generous - to your favourite charity from the extensive list you will find on our charities page.

Whatever cause you feel passionate about or whatever your favourite charity might be, you can give a donation to international, national and local good causes such as Age UK, the Disasters Emergency Committee, Help for Heroes, the NSPCC and the Stroke Association.

What’s more, should you find that your favourite charity is not listed, just let us know and we will do all we can to ensure you can make a donation to them. We can include pretty much any charity as long as they are UK based. Just tell us as many details as possible, including their Registered Charity number, and we will try to get them listed.

Once your cashback has reached ‘payable’ status, you are able to withdraw it. Just go to the ‘Payout’ page of your account and select the method you would like to choose. Once you have chosen your payout method, you will be given the option to give some, or all, of your cashback to one of the many charities we support. Just enter the amount you would like to donate and we will make sure they receive it.


We Pass on All of Your Donations

You can be assured that every single penny of the money you donate is paid to the charity. We currently wait until we have received donations totalling more than £25 for any individual charity before passing them on, with no deductions for administration costs.

At the moment, we can only accept a donation to one charity each time you request a payout. However, you can request a payout every single day if you wish - providing you have payable transactions - so you can always donate to a different charity next time.


A Big Thank You

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you who have made a donation and helped to raise this staggering amount over the years. We realise times are tough and wanted to let you know how much we appreciate you giving up some of your cashback to help those who are less fortunate.

Make sure you check back to discover which charity we will be supporting next year and keep your eyes peeled on our social media channels to see how we will be raising money at TopCashback Towers. Hopefully, we will inspire you to keep donating in 2017.
