eBay are celebrating eBay for Charity raising $1bn in total for good causes. Launched in the US in 2003 and the UK in 2005, the target was to hit the one billion mark by 2020 but they hit the magic number early, £160 million of which was raised through eBay UK.


Since the program’s inception, charities including GRAMMY charities, TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund, The V Foundation, GLIDE, BBC Children in Need and The Prince’s Trust use eBay for Charity to reach their fundraising goals.

Last year, charities collectively raised more than $83 million selling directly on eBay and a staggering $10.5 million from more than 9 million listings was raised by community sellers, the everyday heroes selling on behalf of charities, in the US and UK.

“The eBay community is passionate about shopping with purpose, and this vibrant community of buyers and sellers has enabled us to reach an incredible milestone ahead of schedule. eBay for Charity provides an opportunity to support causes that matter, and there are many unique ways for buyers, sellers and charities to get involved.

In 2018 alone, the eBay community raised a record $102million from more than 20 million charity listings and we’re on track for another record-breaking year! We’re so thankful to our buyers and sellers for their generosity and we encourage everyone to shop with purpose and continue to make a positive impact in the world.”
– Brenda Halkias, General Manager, eBay for Charity
