Amount raised by Giving Tuesday up by almost half despite Covid-19 restrictions

Posted on: December 21, 2020

The amount donated to charities on Giving Tuesday was up by almost half this year, despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on in-person events, new figures indicate.

The payments company Visa said that £20.2m was donated using its platform on 1 December this year, a 42 per cent increase on the equivalent figures last year.

This year’s figure equates to £14,000 a minute being raised for UK good causes. This is a significant rise on the £6,250 raised per minute on the same day in 2015.

Covid-19 restrictions across the UK meant it was much harder for participants to conduct in-person fundraising activities this year.
