Getting involved is easy with ParentPay

What donation methods can I use?

There are multiple ways you can accept donations for Red Nose Day. The easiest is by card through our Donations Page.

How do I take donations with ParentPay?

The simplest way to securely accept donations via ParentPay is by using our Donations page. Free of charge for all schools raising money for Red Nose Day, this Donations Page is unique to your school and accessible from any device or computer. So, all you need to do is get in touch to tell us you’re raising money for Comic Relief and leave the rest to us. We’ll notify you when the page is ready.

How long until I can access my Donations Page?

As your Donations Page is bespoke to your school it typically takes up to 5 working days to set up. We will let you know as soon as it is ready.

How does Comic Relief receive my schools Red Nose Day donations?

Any donations made through our Donations Page are settled directly to Comic Relief. Say good-bye to counting cash and posting cheques!

Can parents add Gift Aid to their donation?

Yes, parents can easily add Gift Aid for any Comic Relief donations made through ParentPay. Simply tick the Gift Aid box at check-out.

How do I know how much my school has raised for Red Nose Day?

This is really easy. Our reporting function means you can easily export donations details, including the total amount from your ParentPay dashboard.

Do ParentPay charge me for donating to Red Nose Day?

ParentPay never makes a profit on any donations made to any of our charity partners. However, we must charge a very small amount to cover our costs – Comic Relief will receive 99.25% of your Red Nose Day donations.

Do ParentPay offer an alternative way for schools to raise donations?

ParentPay do offer an alternative to donations pages which our support team can take you through if you contact them, however, our secure and easy-to-use donations pages are what we recommend for raising donations.

Funds raised using these alternative ways such as selling red noses would be dealt with separately from funds raised via Donation Pages.
