The Giving Card is a point of sale discount card linked to charitable giving.

Involvement with the BHA 2012
The British Hospitality Association partnered with The Giving Card to offer each of their members a complimentary The Giving Card as a thank you to their members for showing a great deal of support to the industry. The card provided members with a year’s access to discounts to a vast number of lifestyle products, goods and services across the UK.
The Giving Card also aimed to promote members of the BHA, pushing more customers through their doors and keeping the British Hospitality industry thriving! We offered members a completely free listing with The Giving Card publicising their company and offer to our thousands of members all year round. All you have to do is submit an offer that members can redeem each time they book or visit your company.
Who does The Giving Card help?
The Giving Card has three sets of customers; cardholders, charities and businesses. There are different key benefits for each of these groups, as detailed below.
Cardholders – Throughout the year, members enjoy discounts on everything from clubs to car hire, in the knowledge they’re also helping a worthy cause. Discounts are continually updated via the website, giving cardholders ever increasing opportunities to save money.
Charities – The Giving Card offers charities an easy way to raise extra revenue, involving no charges or stockholding and minimum effort on their part. Its aim is to reward people who want to support charities. Every year £10 from their annual subscription goes directly to their chosen charity whilst each cardholder enjoys year-round discounts with a huge range of companies. Charities stand to gain considerable extra income and have nothing to lose.
Businesses – The Giving Card offers businesses an easy, highly cost-effective way to increase their sales and promote their brand. The Giving Card does not charge participating companies- the only thing they have to provide are discounts for cardholders. Particularly in such a tough economic climate, The Giving Card recognises the struggles that businesses face; therefore, a key benefit of teaming up with the company is that there is no cost to be part of The Giving Card. Other benefits include: potential increased footfall, aiding customer loyalty, greater brand awareness, goods and services are consistently promoted throughout the year at no cost, enhances corporate social responsibility credentials and helps gain a competitive edge over local competitors.
