Fees and charges

100% fee-free fundraising.

Fees and charges

The Wonderful Organisation is heavily focused on transparency for its users. This includes being clear about the rights of donors, fundraisers and charities as well as communicating how we operate a genuinely fee-free fundraising site. Our service only exists because of the support of corporate sponsors (Wonderful Partners), who generously contribute financially and in other ways so that every donation made to a charity can be passed on to that charity in full. They allow us to cover any platform costs which might otherwise be passed onto charities (or donors in the form of a voluntary contribution). Wonderful is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee, incorporated in England and Wales, and our registered number is 09818383.

Hypothetical donation

The following hypothetical donation illustrates how much is passed to charities via Wonderful. This applies to all donations made via our platform:

  • Donation amount: £10
  • Gift Aid amount: £2.50 (claimed back by the charity on eligible donations)
  • Administration fee: £0
  • Net donation: £10
  • Total received by charity: £12.50 (including Gift Aid)

Costs to charities or fundraisers

  • Set up costs: £0
  • Cost per month: £0

Interest arrangements

Because we use Open Banking to process donations, funds are passed directly from the donor's account to the charity's. We do not accumulate funds from donations and therefore earn no interest.

Donors covering fees

Because Wonderful does not have any fees of charges, there is no need for donors themselves to cover any costs.
