Donating Your BetterPoints to Charity

Over the last two years, we have disbursed money to a wide array of different charities and local organisations based on donations of BetterPoints you have earned. In total, to date, an amazing £5,153.01 has been distributed to 59 different charities/organisations, supporting vital work in healthcare, community support, animal charities and children’s charities. 

How can YOU help?

As you know, you earn BetterPoints for completing healthy and sustainable activities, and you can choose to treat yourself with a variety of digital or high street rewards. But why not help a local good cause instead? Go to the Donate section and choose a worthwhile recipient to donate your BetterPoints - it's as simple as that!

Some of these charities have received numerous donations from us due to your continued generosity. So, thank you for giving back to your communities and other organisations close to your hearts. You can find out further information about all the charities listed on the Donate section of the app. 

How do BetterPoints manage the donations?

When a charity reaches a threshold of at least £20 worth of points, we contact the charity for their payment details and we then make a BACS transfer. We don't take any commission from the donations or for making the transfers. We aim to process payments every couple of months. Once we have a charity's details and they reach the threshold, it is automatically placed into the monthly payment schedule. We then email them once payments have been made and send across Gift Aid information if they request it. If you regularly make contributions to charity, please ensure your contact details are up to date so we can include full postal addresses for Gift Aid purposes.

How can charities take advantage of BetterPoints? What are the benefits of joining BetterPoints for a charity or retailer?

Charities can promote the use of BetterPoints to their contributor base as an easy fundraising tool. BetterPoints are a financially backed digital currency. This means that when someone donates BetterPoints to your charity, you get the full value in real cash (1,000 points are equivalent to £1.) The BetterPoints community is growing fast and our portal and app offer great promotional channels for your organisation. Many users have enough BetterPoints to donate on a regular basis, which will help introduce you to new supporters.

 If you have any queries about the charities listed or wish to add a local cause, write into us via the Help section of the app or via
