You can now donate your Nectar points to a charity of your choice. That means you can support The Big Issue Foundation with your spare Nectar points, or with your future purchases.
Nectar Donate is a new scheme from Nectar and Crowdfunder which allows you to use your Nectar points for good. If you haven’t used your Nectar card for a while, you may have some points you’ve forgotten about. Nectar Donate makes it easy to link your Nectar card to a Crowdfunder account, convert your Nectar points to cash and donate them to support Big Issue vendors.
And it’s not just existing points that you can donate. You’ll earn points as you shop at Sainsbury’s, eBay, Esso, Argos, Just Eat, and many other places. You can choose to donate some or all of these points to The Big Issue Foundation.
By donating your Nectar points, you can help us deliver face-to-face support for vendors focusing on key areas that have proven to have a sustainable impact on an individual’s future, including accommodation, education, training and employment, finance, benefits and debt, mental wellbeing and social inclusion.
- If you donate 1000 Nectar points (£5) to us could pay for a train fare for a Big Issue vendor to attend a job interview.
- 7000 Nectar points (£35) means we could provide emergency relief to vendors in crisis with fuel top-ups and food vouchers.
- 12,000 Nectar points (£60) could pay for a shopping voucher so a Big Issue vendor can feed themselves and their family.
The best thing about Nectar Donate is that it won’t cost you or us anything. Crowdfunder has generously waived platform fees for anyone donating their points.
There are currently £250m worth of points across Nectar’s 18m UK members, so even if a small part of this is donated to charity could make a huge difference.
