There’s 50% off Goats and more in our half price gift sale. But don't worry, you won’t be paying for half a goat - thanks to a lovely thing called co-funding. When you buy a half price gift a generous donor pays for the other half (or possibly more), making your money go further.

So take a look at our range of fantastic pressies and help to transform the lives of people living in poverty. Hurry and place your orders before midnight on Wednesday to beat the last Christmas post.

What is co-funding?

How does co-funding work in this case?
Some of our donors often say to us that they will only fund specific projects if we commit to raise an agreed amount of funds for the project ourselves. For example, a donor might say that they agree to fund 50% of the project but Oxfam must pay for the other 50%*. This means that if we cannot provide our share of the funding, we lose the other 50% from the donor. And this is why your money is so vital: it will help unlock funding that we would otherwise be unable to get, making your money go a lot, lot further! *Note: The percentage can vary and could be as much as 90% for our 10%.

Who is the donor?
A range of donors offer co-funding. They include the UK government's Department for International Development, the European Union, as well as private trusts and charitable foundations, to name just a few. As they often do not fund 100% of our projects, we need to provide the rest of the funding and your money will help us do this!

Is this going to mean Oxfam (and Oxfam's beneficiaries) get less money than if I paid full price?
Quite the opposite! Your money will help us meet our co-funding obligations, which will unlock the funding that other donors have promised!

Will the goats still be looked after just as well?
Of course. Oxfam shares your concerns about animal welfare. Oxfam supports communities by providing livestock, and it is not without taking this highly-important issue into account. We consult with local communities who have traditions of care for livestock, and we have also created a set of welfare guidelines to ensure that all livestock is well cared for. These guidelines are supported by the RSPCA and were developed with the Humane Society of the US. We provide training to beneficiaries and local animal healthcare workers so there is ongoing support for the animals.

Oh dear, what a very biggy silly you are! oO

This is a deal site not a charity fundraising spam site, tell me how exactly this is a great deal for me a HUKD member. Maybe I am missing the point but I just see a personalized card with a goat on it for £12.50 instead of £25.00. If you think I am wrong then lets discuss it. Shouting made up words in a forum is considered trolling I believe.

Great post. What a load of incredibly stupid posts about it too. Your money to a very worthy cause gets doubled. Brilliant.

The deal is that you are able to give a charitable gift for half the cost to yourself (or double your donation for no extra cost). Hope this helps.

Not quite the same:

Giving this gift
When you buy an Oxfam Unwrapped gift you can be confident that the real gift will be sent to where it's needed most.

We will send you (or your friend or family member if you prefer) a gift card that tells them what they've been bought and how it will help to improve someone's life. You can add little extras during checkout, which are posted at the same time.

You'll be given the opportunity to customise your gift card or E-card during checkout and specify your delivery details.

Thread tidied. Please keep it on topic and free of private bickering.
The heat on this deal suggests that the majority of the HUKD community appreciate it despite one members crusade to turn this into a personal and silly argument
