As with all gift vouchers and gift cards, some do not get redeemed. Anglia Giving, which runs the Charity Vouchers service, is formally constituted as a not-for-profit company. As a result, money from unused vouchers can never be withdrawn from the company as ‘profit’. Instead we use it, alongside income from our processing fees, as an integral source of funds to help cover costs involved in running the Charity Vouchers service itself.
Any remaining funds are distributed to a wide variety of the United Kingdom’s best-known charities including: Medecins Sans Frontieres, the Alzheimer’s Society, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), Cancer Research UK, Concern Worldwide, Habitat for Humanity, the British Red Cross, the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), the Royal National Institute for the Deaf (RNID), WaterAid, the British Heart Foundation, The Samaritans and others.
