Common Change is all about group-giving, based on the principle that: together there is enough. Through Common Change groups the gap between giver and receiver is closed because the Common Change way ensures that needs are always discovered, decided-on and delivered by group members.
Common Change really isn’t like other charities – primarily because we don’t ask ‘you’ to give ‘us’ donations.
Instead, we operate a group-based giving model, enabling you and your friends to build up a common fund that you can release gifts from when one of you comes across a need.
If you don’t feel ready to start a group but still like what we’re doing and want to support our efforts to eliminate economic isolation you are welcome to make a donation into our general fund.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
