Make your fundraising limitless

In an increasingly digital and cashless world, fundraising is changing but we have a solution to support your fundraising. Through our partner GiveStar, we introduce Tap-on-Phone.

With a simple app you can turn your smartphone into a contactless fundraising machine. No hardware required! 

Sign up now for access to the GiveStar dashboard and empower your fundraising. 

Take donations in three easy steps:

  1. Register for the platform. Christian Aid will set up your profile on the GiveStar Dashboard, linking any giving to your church or Christian Aid Group. 

  1. Download the charity Go app. You will receive an onboarding email from Christian Aid with a link to download the app. 

  1. Start taking donations at your next event! 


Does it cost anything? 

The Charity Go app is free to use. Card processing fees are charged at 1.90% + 20p transaction processing fee collected on donations made by a UK credit and debit card 

What are the requirements for tap on phone? 

You must have access to a mobile phone on which you can download an app to take cashless donations. The device needs to have NFC technology, be Google certified and Android 10 or above from factory.  

Apple phones can now download the app too. Your device needs to be an iPhones XS or later and running iOS 16+. 

Can the app take Apple and Google Pay?
