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:
Add a specific amount to each purchase, for example 20p. Every time you pay for something 20p is donated.
Add a percentage to each purchase, for example 10%. If your bill comes to £4.80, 48p is donated.
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

About Schools for Nepal
On the 25th April 2015, Nepal suffered a disastrous Earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 on the Richter scale and before things could settle, another earthquake of 7.4 magnitude jolted the country again on the 12th May 2015 with hundreds of subsequent aftershocks. The whole country suffered an inconceivable loss of lives and destruction to property and infrastructure. Thousands of schools and colleges were destroyed and levelled to the ground. With a total loss of over $6 billion USD, equivalent to about 30% of its GDP, Nepal has stood strong to get out of the perils of the disaster and the world has collectively contributed towards restoring stability.
In order to make a small change to the lives of the young children who lost their centres of learning during this disaster, Dolma Gurung together with her partner, Anish Aggarwal of Phoenix Capital Partners and together with Niveda Foundation and the CG Foundation in Nepal, have launched this initiative through a charity registered in the UK, Schools for Nepal.
The aim of this charity is to put its all efforts, energy and resources into building new schools in the remote areas of the country which were either destroyed because of the earthquake and to provide access to education to the children who have been unfortunate to have suffered the trauma of the events of 2015 and lost their schools and in some cases, their loved ones too.
Building new schools in Nepal
Schools for Nepal has been launched with the philosophy to stabilise the educational equilibrium within the country, particularly within the remote areas. By focusing on a particular area, i.e. education, we feel that all our energies and resources would be aligned for the particular cause and the support from our local partners will help in materialising the vision into reality.
We Love the Donate The Change Solution
Donate the change is a great asset when it comes to fund raising for Schools For Nepal given its secure, swift and simple process.
Donate The Change is a fabulous way for people to incorporate supporting the charity of their choice as part of their daily lives.
