Pennies is an award-winning fintech charity with an important mission: To protect and grow micro-donations - ensuring the public has digital ways to keep donating the small amounts of money that are so vital for charitable causes.
Pennies aims to build a community of givers, and turn small acts of kindness into powerful impact for the charity sector. Because microdonations matter – now more than ever.
Pennies runs the digital charity box, the digital upgrade of the traditional charity tin, designed to fit with our increasingly cashless lifestyles. Donating a few pence to charity when paying by card or mobile wallet is as simple as a single press of a button or click of a mouse.
As our daily lives are changing, Pennies wants to make sure everyone has the chance to donate to charity where they can, especially online and in-app. The opportunity is urgent, and groundbreaking in its possibility: there is a potential if each of us gave around 35p a week, for UK consumers to raise £1bn a year for charity.
