Donate at no cost to you

It may sound too good to be true, but many corporations allow you to donate to charity at no cost to you. We are members of Give as you Live.

Give as you Live are partnered with 4,500 shops as well as dozens of providers across insurance, energy and broadband. Because of this relationship, when you visit an online retailer via Give as you Live Online and make a purchase, they give Give as you Live a reward as a “thank you”.

With this reward, they make a donation to The Folly
