The Giving Machine

Help raise money for Elmfield – at no extra cost to you!

This is the simplest way to raise extra money for our school. All you have to do is shop online as usual at your favourite stores and the school will receive a donation. The only extra step is that you need to go via The Giving Machine website first and then from their site to your online store. (The very first time you use The Giving Machine you will need to sign up which takes less than 5 minutes.)

Participating stores include: Amazon, Argos, Sainsbury’s (incl. groceries), John Lewis, Tesco, and Waterstones.

Getting started is easy!

Just visit Elmfield’s Giving Machine page and follow the instructions.

Please note: If you do not shop via The Giving Machine page each time, then the donation will not be triggered and Elmfield will not receive any money.

How does it work and why is it free?

When you buy online via The Giving Machine, a sales commission is received from the participating shop. 75% of this is converted into a donation on your behalf and sent to Elmfield. 25% is retained to contribute to costs of maintaining the website and distributing donations (comparable to the UK charities average). If you do not access the online shop via the links on The Giving Machine website, then the donation will not be triggered and Elmfield will not receive any money.

If you need any further information about The Giving Machine you can find it on their FAQs page.

Happy shopping!
