How many times are you asked to give to charity? Astonishingly, for each person, the average is 200 times a year. There are almost 200,000 charities in the Uk and they make 13 billion ‘asks’ for money every year. It gets increasingly more difficult for small charities to raise money and increasingly more difficult for the public to say yes to all of those ‘asks’.
The Clutha Trust and SpiritAid have created a simple concept to help those small charities, it is called – ‘Donate to Win’. Our fundraising initiative is based on one thing, Social Media. In the last decade billions of people have started using the various online platforms that are available. These figures and platforms continue to grow, more and more, and social media continues to penetrate and shape almost every aspect of our daily lives. It has permanently changed advertising, marketing, communication and many more areas.
How Donate to Win works – Players join for only £1 per month and are entered in to our monthly prize draw. Check our prizes out here – recent prizes include a signed Rod Stewart guitar. When making their initial payment, players select which charity they would like their £1 to go to.
There are three ways your business can get involved
- Donate a prize – Product or Service
- Promote ‘Donate to Win’ and encourage your staff to join
- Pay £1 per month for each member of your staff to enter ‘Donate to Win’
What we do for you
- Advertise your product or company logo on our social media – we have 500,00 unique users & envisage over 1 million by 2019
- Add to you corporate and social responsibility – our logo can be used on your web and printed publications
- We give your staff the chance to win one of our fantastic prizes and more importantly the chance and awareness to interact with one of our many charities.
One final thought
The National Lottery has around 32 million players each week and creates an invaluable source of income – around 23% of revenue – goes to ‘good causes’ – 92% of revenue from Donate to Win goes to our charities. We do not pay salaries or have massive overheads. The 8% is a bank charge which will decrease with the more players we have.
I will only ‘ask’ you once – help us to help others – email me firstname.lastname@example.org or call me 07970839132 if you are interested in helping us.

‘The aim of the Clutha Trust is to help disadvantaged young people to give them hope, an opportunity and a belief. We give young people the chance to dream that they can play a musical instrument – learn how to act – become an artist – be almost anything they want to be – a chance. The Clutha Trust and Spirit Aid were pushed together by a twist of fate – together we raise funds to help so many people change their lives’
