Shopify Fundraising for charities

Why donate with your store?


In 2022, conscious consumers became the worlds largest consumer demographic making up 44% of the market. While this is a large number on its own, it is expected to increase over time as purchasing power of younger generations increases.


These consumers choose to purchase from brands that alight with their own personal values. By giving back to an environmental or social cause, stores can show their customers that they care (and align with their values).

Why use a Shopify Charity App to donate?


Traditionally, brands have supported charities and causes directly. While it has been done many times over, there are numerous steps in this process:

  • Selecting a cause that aligns with brand values

  • Creating terms and collaboration agreements

  • Running partnership activation campaigns

  • Manage donations and payouts


Using a Shopify donation app or integration takes these steps and automates many of the processes. Instead of spending weeks (or months) setting up, there are options available that can do these steps in a matter of minutes. A reputable web design company will help you integrate these apps into your website for a seamless experience.


By using an app to give back brands can;

  • Start supporting faster

  • Save development costs

  • Reduce admin time
