About Us

We match-make companies willing to donate prizes to charities hosting fundraising events. We provide both donor and charity with a range of benefits tailored to suit their needs - and all at no cost.

Our Story

Our story began in 2016 when Jeremy, our founder, attended a black tie charity ball in London. He was the successful bidder of a holiday used in the live auction, and felt rather happy to have supported the charity whilst having a lovely holiday to look forward to! A few weeks later however, he discovered that the charity only received 40% of his winning bid.

The holiday had been supplied by a private auction company – and once they had paid the supplier back and taken their commission the charity only skimmed what was left.

From that day forward he vowed to find a way to make it easier for charities to source (and businesses to donate) the prizes they so badly need for their fundraising events. Charity Escapes came to life that evening on a napkin, and the rest as they say, is history!

The Idea

Businesses can make their charitable giving more effective whilst enjoying additional sales & marketing benefits

Charities can use prizes at their event that truly benefit them & raise much needed funds

It’s a win-win for both and there is always a happy winning bidder!
