Frequently
asked questions

What is Serendipity?

Serendipity is one app for all your giving. We are the platform that wants to make it easy for you to do good: vetted charities, donation funds, easy payments, and no commissions or emails asking you to donate more. We are a tech-for-good company in partnership with the Chapel & York UK foundation making giving accessible and enjoyable for all.

Do I have to subscribe? Can I make a single donation?

You can make single or recurring donations to any charity or fund on the app. However, any donations you make will be taken out in a single monthly payment which we will then distribute to your designated charities. This helps us keep transaction costs down.

Can I donate to just any charity through Serendipity?

Yes! You will be able to donate to any registered UK charity that meets our basic eligibility criteria (over 65,000 of them!). Because that can get quite overwhelming, we’ve featured about 120 charities that we think will make the best use of your money. We also count with 50 donation funds to help you support the causes you care about in the smartest way possible. Now, the choice is yours.

How do you screen for charities?

We combine our own research with that provided by other charity evaluators such as Charity Navigator, GuideStar, or GiveWell. We filter and select for those with a lengthy track record of high-impact, a lean cost structure, and recognition by grant providers or effective altruism organisations as being the best in their respective categories.

Is Serendipity free to use? How much of my money will go to charity?

Serendipity is entirely free for you to use. 100% of your donations (and GiftAid, if applicable) will go to charity, regardless of the amount or frequency of your donation - no small print. We do not take any commission from your payment or from the charities on the platform.
We rely on the support of our users: when you donate, you will have the opportunity to support us by adding a small tip to your donation. But that is totally optional. Our only incentive is to make you enjoy your donation and help you support the best charities out there.

My question isn’t listed here. Where can I get help?

Send us an email at hello@srnd.pt or reach out via one of our social media channels (links below!).
