We have partnered with Give as you Live, the leading platform supporting charities with fundraising through everyday online shopping, with no additional cost to our supporters.

  • Fundraising through online shopping Sign up for a free Give as you Live account here and select The Albion Foundation as your nominated charity.
  • Browse thousands of online stores and shop through our portal here and each transaction (which won’t cost you a penny more than if going directly to the retailer’s website) and each shop will donate a percentage of your spend with them to The Albion Foundation.

Fundraising with your weekly shop

You can also raise funds for The Albion Foundation through your weekly supermarket shop.

All you have to do is purchase a pre-paid gift card which you can use to pay for your shopping and the retailer will pay a donation directly to The Albion Foundation.

The gift card will have the same value that you pay for it so it won’t cost you any more AND will raise vital funds for our local community. On average a £100 weekly shop will earn the charity over £100 per year!
