Donate as you Shop
Do you use Amazon for some of your shopping? Did you know that by shopping through Amazon Smile you can donate a percentage of the cost of your purchases to your chosen charity?
By registering your Amazon account for Amazon Smile you can then select your preferred charity. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net price of eligible purchases to that charity. Amazon Smile is the same as Amazon the only difference is that at checkout a percentage will be calculated and donated to charity.
Glasgow’s Golden Generation is registered with Amazon Smile and we would be delighted if you would choose us as your partner charity.

Celebrate with Us
Have you got a big birthday looming or are you about to celebrate a milestone anniversary? With any life event our friends and family always want to show us their love and recognise the landmark and they usually do that by buying us a gift. It is increasingly common now for people to ask their loved ones to donate to charity instead of buying a present. If you would like to consider this as an option we can help make it easy for you to do.
If you are having a party we can provide you with a Glasgow’s Golden Generation bucket which has a sealed lid and guests can pop in their donation at the event. We can provide a poster if you think that would be helpful explaining what you are doing which you can display on the night. We can collect the bucket from you sealed and count and bank the money for you and let you know the total so you can thank everyone for their generosity. Alternatively you can count the contributions and make a cumulative donation.
If you are not having a party/event to celebrate but would still like to commemorate the occasion by supporting us you can set up an online fundraising page. This is easy to do and even easier for your friends and family to use. Glasgow’s Golden Generation work with Justgiving to provide online donation and sponsorship pages. If you would like to use this as a method of fundraising you can follow the steps completing your details and what you are celebrating. A page will then be created and you can then share the link for that page on your social media or by emailing all your friends and family.
Friends and family can make a donation of any amount by following a few simple steps. They can keep their donation anonymous from other people or they can make it visible with a message to you. You can see how much you are raising at any time by logging in to your page at any time. You don’t need to do anything with the donations as they are paid direct to the charity. Your donors can also opt in for Gift Aid to be claimed on their donation by using this method. Gift Aid would see an additional £2.50 claimed on a £10 donation increasing the amount the charity receives by a substantial amount.
If you would like to raise funds for us through a celebration we would love to hear from you. Please email email@example.com or call us on 0141 221 9924. If we can help in anyway please just ask.
