eBay for Charity

If you have a collection of unwanted items that you're looking to sell, eBay for Charity is an easy, safe way to support us at the same time as making a few pounds.  Sellers can donate a percentage from any sale - whether it's an everyday bargain or a special auction - to a us and add Gift Aid to their donations.

In addition, all eBay for Charity items will qualify for a fee credit on basic insertion and final value fees, equal to the percentage donated.

How it works

List your unwanted things on eBay and make sure you click ‘Donate a portion to charity’. Choose Meningitis Now as your chosen charity and select how much of the sale you would like to donate. When your item sells, your donation will come directly to Meningitis Now through the PayPal Giving Fund. You’ll receive a donation receipt from eBay to confirm.

If you're buying from eBay, keep an eye out for the blue and yellow ribbon on listings that marks an item sale as supporting a charity.
