About Us

Hello. We’re Urban Leaf, the UK’s longest-running charity fundraising organisation.

We’re a friendly bunch committed to helping our partners do more work to help more people in the UK and abroad by inspiring members of the public to give a small monthly donation for the long term.

We were founded in 2003 by Tom and Mark, two former street fundraisers who were inspired to create a company full of talented, passionate people who wanted to make a difference.

To do that, we’ve remained relatively small – with around 40 fundraisers at any one time.

But we’re mighty in spirit, fielding the best street fundraisers in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Cardiff, Birmingham, Nottingham and London and acting as one of the most cost-effective fundraising streams for the likes of Plan International, ActionAid and Barnardo’s.

What Makes Us Different to Other Fundraising Agencies?

We believe long term donors are inspired by great people and skilled fundraisers who are committed to quality.

We want the public experience on the high street to be friendly, engaging and inspiring and we want every new donor who supports our charities to be fully informed and happy with what they have agreed to give.

We don’t pay commission (that doesn’t work for anyone). Instead our teams earn a flat rate starting from £12 – £16 per hour depending where you are in the country and are measured on their passion and enthusiasm in engaging the public with the work our charities do.

Consequently we have one of the lowest complaint rates in the industry and a culture which is both challenging and rewarding.
