By adding your project via these routes this will ensure that your business and community projects will have no fees applied.
Please note: We are responding quickly to this changing situation and with that some projects may have been charged a small fee on some of their initial pledges
While we are unable to refund any fees on pledges already made, we are moving all projects flagged to us over to the 100% free crowdfunding model as soon as we can.
If you want to raise funds directly for a charity then click on the third option.
You will then need to click I am a Fundraiser option and then you can search for the charity that you want to start fundraising for. These funds are sent to the charities bank account and there are no fees for this option.
If the charity you are fundraising for is not registered you can still go ahead and run a personal fundraiser for them, the funds will go in to your bank account however transaction fees will be applicable.
Crowdfunder charges a payment processing fee of 1.67% on what you raise, plus 25p and VAT on each pledge. For Non-EU/UK cards (i.e. a pledge from the US), the fee is 3.25%, plus 25p and VAT on each pledge.
