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 the cost of all transaction fees and any other charges which might be associated with donations. 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

Any donations made via the Wonderful platform are placed into a holding account and then transferred to charities at the beginning of the following month. Any interest accumulated by funds held in this account is re-absorbed by Wonderful and used to cover its running costs. As a not-for-profit organisation funded entirely by generous corporate sponsorships, Wonderful assumes that its registered charities are more than happy with this arrangement. 

If you have any questions about Wonderful’s fee-free model, please don’t hesitate to contact us via the Helpdesk. Other useful links include our Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy, and FAQ.

Donors covering fees

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

Our wonderful partners

Our wonderful partners - who support us with cash and services - make it possible for us to pass EVERY PENNY raised from your fundraising efforts and generous donations to our charities, including Gift Aid. Of course, we would be unable to do so without them.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
