Now for the serious stuff

Claim Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a tax relief allowing UK charities to reclaim an extra 25% on every eligible donation made by a UK taxpayer. GiveStar lets charities see an estimate of how much Gift Aid they are due in real time. Even better, we can claim it on your behalf to help you reduce admin!

Totally secure

Security is our top priority. All card holder information is processed by our Level 1 PCI DSS certified payment partner, and all data on the platform is securely encrypted both in transit and rest. GiveStar is licenced by the Financial Conduct Authority and complies with all payment platform regulations.


GiveStar is a for profit organisation with a mission to bring the best technology to good causes. Our primary revenue comes from voluntary tips made on top of donations, allowing us to remove our platform fee. Transaction fees apply which cover standard card usage fees from our payment processing partners.
