UCL student and Consultant Entrepreneur at UCLB Chester Mojay-Sinclare has launched the Charity Checkout website, which offers a new payment service enabling small charities to benefit from online giving. UCLB is working with Chester and supporting the company.

Chester said: ‘From today, any charity who signs up to Charity Checkout will receive an online account where they can manage their donations and set up custom payment pages for specific campaigns. Charity Checkout will pay out all their donations in a single monthly payment, with Gift Aid included. Furthermore, to get each charity started, Charity Checkout will be giving away free advertising space on some of the UK’s most popular websites.’

Cengiz Tarhan, Managing Director of UCLB, stated: ‘Working with Chester is particularly rewarding; the Charity Checkout website concept he has been working on is based on good business foundations but very importantly aims to promote and deliver benefits to many small charities.’

To find out more information about the launch of Charity Checkout, please see the press release on the UK Fundraising website.
