Credit Cards
Andrew Hagger of Moneyfacts.co.uk comments: "There is a wide range of charity related credit cards on the market, enabling the consumer to use a card linked to the charity of their choice. Most cards will donate a specific amount when you first use the card, followed by a further percentage donation each time the card is used, linked to the amount you spend.

"This shouldn't prevent you donating via the big televised events; however if you pledge your donation using your charity card this Friday, it is a 'double whammy' in that Children in Need will receive your donation, and your chosen charity will also benefit from a percentage of that donation."

N = Introductory rate for 1st 6/9 months. d = If card used within 1st 6 months a further £2.50 is donated.

Savings Accounts
As well as using charity credit cards as a way of donating, you can also open a savings account where a percentage of your average balance or in some cases some of the interest accrued on your savings will go to your chosen charity.

Rachel Thrussell, Head of Savings at Moneyfacts.co.uk comments: "Whilst the charity affinity savings accounts do not pay the highest rates available, they are by no means the lowest on offer.

"Not all consumers are concerned with receiving the top rate of interest, but would be prepared to settle for a more modest return for themselves in return for a donation being made to a national or local charity of their choice."
