Mary's Meals at The National Gallery
Each with a device
GiveStar supporting Mary's Meals
In February 2020, the GiveStar team was proud to support Mary’s Meals at a fantastic fundraising event at The National Gallery. With over 400 guests in attendance, eighteen brilliant volunteers used GiveStar devices to take donations, pledges, and for the grand auction.
The organisers smashed their target and raised over £160,000 towards their goal of providing every child with a daily school meal.

94% of donors chose the option to cover platform fees, saving the charity over £700.
Fundraisers can engage with new donors with personalised charity imagery and messaging. For Mary’s Meals, it costs £15.90 to feed a child for a school year. They were able to display this messaging on the phone screen.
The groups feature allows the charity to take advantage of people wanting to fundraise on their behalf by setting up a group on the charity HQ dashboard. This provides the group with their own dashboard, but with no access to the charity HQ reporting or campaigns.
“GiveStar made fundraising at our event easy, and we were able to almost double our expected goal using the portable devices.”
Jamie Lindsay, Fundraiser
