Donate the Change service

Use a Donate The Change payment accessory to make a difference to your charity & enjoy a better way to pay (click on the benefit to read more):

You’re in control

When you pay for something using a Donate The Change accessory a donation rule is automatically triggered to send your donation immediately to your charity.

How much you donate depends on the rules you set.
There are three options:

  1. Add a specific amount to each purchase, for example 20p. Every time you pay for something 20p is donated.
  2. Add a percentage to each purchase, for example 10%. If your bill comes to £4.80, 48p is donated.
  3. Round up to the nearest pound. For example, if your bill comes to £3.29 then 71p is donated.

You can also set a monthly cap if you want to limit the amount you donate in any given month. The minimum cap you can set is £2 per month. You can change these rules any time you like online or using our app, keeping you in control of your giving

Get Treats & Offers for using the service

Every time you pay for something using your Donate The Change accessory you earn Taps. The more you use your accessory the more Taps you earn and the better the rewards you can get.

You can also earn more Taps by taking part in activities in our app, like recommending a friend or watching the latest video from your charity.

You’ll be able to choose from a range of offers and discounts, including free coffees, visits to the cinema and discount dining cards.

Happy Tapping!

It’s safe & secure

The Donate The Change service includes a Mastercard® prepaid contactless chip that fits inside your accessory and is as safe as any contactless bank card.

We look after your personal data in a safe and secure way.  Your data is your data. We never sell, share, give or market your data. You are always in control of marketing communications – opting in or out any time you like.

The service is Free* to use

We want to make this service available to everyone. So once you’ve got your accessory, you can get spending without worrying about additional banking fees or charges. And because it is a prepaid contactless card, you are in even more control of your money.

*You can load your accessory using your debit card for free, and if you use your credit card, a 3.5% fee will be charged per load.

The fuss free way to pay!

No more fishing around to find your purse or wallet at the checkout. Simply load up your Donate The Change bracelet or keyring then tap wherever you see the contactless symbol to pay for anything £30 or under and away you go!

The Shelo Foundation

We work in areas of extreme poverty in Eastern Uganda to create healthy, educated, self-sustaining communities!
In particular we focus on child health, education and nutrition. We tackle the barriers children face in each of these domains. We provide school materials and lunches so children can attend school and perform, we provide seeds and farming tools for families to grow crops and eat regular meals and we educate our community on health, life skills and self-sustainability.
To date we have delivered over 102,000 school materials, over 45,000 school meals and support the nutrition of over 1,400 children!
We work hand in hand with the Ugandan community, we listen to their needs and come up with initiatives together that we believe will benefit future generations!


Joel is one of the children the Shelo Foundation supports. Here he tells his story and explains how the Shelo Foundation changed his life! There are hundreds of other children like Joel and his siblings struggling to survive in Bududa, Uganda. We want to support these children and give them love and care. We want to educate them so they can enhance their communities. We want to work towards a community where children don’t find themselves in the scary, vulnerable position Joel was once in!

A quote from the founder

We work to give orphans and street children a home, an education, enough food to eat but most importantly the opportunity to escape extreme poverty
