Online giving account - giving made easy
Who is it for?
Anyone who wants to give to charity but don't always have the time to do so. With our account you can deposit a minimum of £1,000 per annum or regular payments of £84 per month.
It is a simple and tax-efficient way to give to charity, allowing you to put aside money to give to charitable organisations throughout the UK. You have autonomy over how and when you choose to support the causes that are close to your heart - whether it's responding to an emergency appeal or making regular donations to your favourite charities. All your donations are made from one place, so it's easy to keep track of your giving for tax purposes.
Simply add funds to your online account by debit card or by setting up a standing order from your bank account and start giving to as many charities as you wish. You can also add your favourite charities to your list.
As a charity we aim to keep our fees to a minimum. We will deduct a small contribution of 4% from the value of your donations to contribute to the work of Foundation Scotland. Your donation will further our vision of a vibrant Scotland where philanthropists and independent funders invest money, expertise and influence to make a difference to causes and communities that inspire them.

“I find the online account extremely handy to have at my fingertips as quite often a decision to donate to a particular cause can be a spur of the moment thing or can be triggered by, for example, an online news article or receipt of an email. The online account allows me to make a donation there and then, quickly and easily.
The account allows me to build up a list of favourite charities and a big plus point is in having all the details of the various financial transactions in the one place.
If you haven’t tried this method of managing your charitable giving, I’d recommend that you give it a go!”
