03 Jan 2023 News

Some £590m was raised through JustGiving for 23,000 charities and good causes in the UK in 2022, the highest total recorded by the platform.

Last year’s total is 7% higher than the £551m raised in 2021, with both figures including Gift Aid.

More than 850,000 new crowdfunding and fundraising pages were set up throughout the course of the year.

Pages created to support the people of Ukraine garnered the most donations, with over 21,000 pages set up and £52m raised. 

This was followed by those taking part in the London Marathon, who collectively helped raise over £40m, the most ever raised on the platform for the event.

Meanwhile, over £10m was donated to the Mighty Hike and the late Dame Deborah James raised almost £9m for the Bowelbabe Fund.

According to the platform, people from Bristol donated more money through the platform than any other area in the UK. 

JustGiving’s youngest fundraiser was 16-month-old Violet, who raised over £700 for Yorkshire Brain Tumour Society, by taking part in a Step into September challenge. 

Meanwhile, one of the platform’s eldest fundraisers Margaret spent her 100th year making over 115 jars of marmalade to raise money for Nightingale Cancer Support Charity. 

Pascale Harvie, president and general manager of JustGiving said: “The generosity shown and the incredible lengths that people go to in order to raise funds for charities and good causes is astonishing. 

“This year has been really hard for so many people, yet we’ve seen a tremendous outpour of support for crowdfunders and charities. Every single person that has donated and or fundraised is truly helping to make the world a better place and for that I just want to say thank you.”
