JustGiving charges a fee for their services which include processing donations to your page, claiming GiftAid on Cool Earth’s behalf and administering your fundraising pages.
Based on the location of the non-profit you are donating to, JustGiving applies the following service charges, ahead of sending the funds to the Cool Earth.
There are two ways to make sure offline donations reach the charity.
1. Make an online donation using your own credit/debit card
Pay the donations into your own bank account and make an online donation via your JustGiving page. If you choose this option and are a UK taxpayer make sure that you un-tick the Gift Aid box. Gift Aid should only be claimed when an eligible donor is making their own donation, not on behalf of someone else or a group.
2. Send donations to the charity directly and use the ‘Raised offline’ function
You can also send donations raised offline directly to the charity. It’s a good idea to reference your JustGiving page address to help with their reports.
Get in touch at [email protected] and we’ll get you all set up.
