Charity Gift Vouchers was established in 1999 and launched in September 2000 as part of our Charity Initiative "Donate As You Spend" the objectives of which are:
"To provide a service to allow customers the freedom to donate money to their chosen charity through everyday spending, without cost to themselves"
"To enable charities, irrespective of size, to benefit from all available Fundraising opportunities"
The original concept of the Founder, Terry Harvey, was to establish a system that could assist in reversing the decline that had occurred in charitable giving and to operate a business that gave back to the Community.
The recession of the 90's and the current economic climate means that surplus funds for donating to charity are not always available but through the use of retailer and supermarket gift vouchers a Free donation can be achieved to the purchasers chosen charity.
Since launching, many thousands are now using the gift voucher service to send gifts to family and friends or purchasing gift vouchers for their everyday shopping to assist their chosen charity.
Over the years numerous clubs and associations have group purchased gift vouchers to gain the maximum donation for helping with local community projects.
One of our major areas of raising donations has been from the Corporate sector with businesses, local authorities and government departments purchasing the gift vouchers for staff rewards and motivation programs. Many businesses use the flexibility of gift vouchers as retirement gifts or as customer incentives and due to our experience within these areas we can advise on the most appropriate method of introducing an incentive program.
We would like to thank customers old and new for their continued support in purchasing the gift vouchers and in raising substantial sums for a whole range of charities and also to thank our retail partners for contracting into this Charity initiative.
If you are a new visitor to our website why not establish a standing order, or send that belated gift with a wallet printed with the text of your message.
We have far to go but have come a long way.
