Third sector UK recently reported that direct debit donations rose by 4.5% to 1.17 bn pounds last year.
“The figures show that education charities had the biggest year-on-year increase in the number of direct debit donations of 6.7 per cent, but this equated to a growth in value of just 0.1 per cent.
Animal charities had a 5.2 per cent increase in the number of direct debit donations between 2012 and 2013, with a similar increase in value of 4.8 per cent.
Graham Callaghan, charity sector specialist at Bacs, said: “This data again underlines the effectiveness and ease of direct debit as a method for supporting good causes.””
