**Figures from Virgin Money Giving


Virgin Money Giving are the official fundraising partner for the Royal Parks Half Marathon. Through Virgin Money Giving, 100% of your donations can go to your charity with Donor Covers Fee.  Virgin Money Giving will never make a profit from what they do, but do need to charge a small platform and processing payment fee. Giving donors the option to cover this fee means 100% of the donation then reaches your charity, making an even bigger impact to your cause.

They provide support throughout the campaign for all charities, and regular communications to your fundraisers, including hints and tips to help them raise as much money as possible for you.
