Raizor makes it simple for supporters to donate using their everyday purchases such as financial services, utilities and entertainment – often saving money at the same time.
We focused our Spending Giving proposition on business and charity procurement, beginning with insurance – something that affects all organisations. Insurance for Good provides long-term and sustainable support to charity in line with our very reason for being.
Raizor’s mission is to identify and act on opportunities where our combined experience, knowledge and networks can be applied to produce win-win outcomes – value for the supporter involved, typically in the form of savings, with a donation to charity at no cost to the supporter. We've since expanded this to support sustainability initiatives as well.
