Giving.gg - making fundraising easy for local charities

Giving.gg is the new online donation facility for members of the Association of Guernsey Charities.  It is an easy way for organisations to collect donations, via the internet, using credit/debit card, PayPal, or internet banking.  Whilst the card companies may deduct a small processing fee, the major benefit to charities is that Giving.gg charges no admin/membership/joining fees.  So more of the donation goes to the good cause.  <<more>>
