Important information about fundraising safely and appropriately online.
Before creating your fundraising page, there are a number of obligations we must bring to your attention. When you check the Guidance Notes confirmation box, you are confirming that:
You can access the full Code of Fundraising Practice by following this link.
Our platform only supports fundraising for registered charities. Every donation raised through your wonderful fundraising page is passed instantly and securely to your nominated charity's bank account. We do not offer a service for peer-to-peer or crowdfunding. On this basis, you acknowledge that funds received from your supporters will be passed in full to your nominated charity.
If you are raising money for a specific charity appeal, (for example, specifically for a new church roof, rather than for the church charity in general), you must:
If you are taking part in an event where the charity is covering some of your expenses, the amount designated for your own expenses must be stated in your fundraising activity description. This ensures your supporters know exactly how much the charity will receive to support its work and how much covers the expenses it must meet to enable you to fundraise.
An example might be an overseas expedition to raise money for a charity. You set a target of £5,000 on your fundraising page. In return for your fundraising efforts, the charity covers the cost of the expedition flights and accommodation. You must specify exactly how much the charity is contributing to your own expenses from the £5,000 which your supporters donate.
The following text will be added automatically at the end of your fundraising activity description so that your supporters understand what happens if your target isn’t reached or if it is exceeded.
All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.
In meeting its regulatory obligations, Wonderful does not permit fundraisers or charities to display alternative payment details/methods anywhere on the Wonderful.org website. If appropriate, you may mention that other donation methods are available, but these should always been accessed through the nominated charity's official website.
We do not support offline fundraising on the Wonderful platform. You understand and agree that any offline fundraising activities you undertake to support activities described on your Wonderful fundraising page must also comply with the Code of Fundraising Practice.
If you have any questions about Wonderful’s fee-free model, please don’t hesitate to contact us
