Fundraise for us:
There are some helpful hints and ideas in our handy fundraising booklet.
* JustGiving do not charge a platform fee for donations, but only deduct card transaction fees. For Gift Aid, they charge a small fee from the amount recovered from HMRC, which saves the charity from having to manually submit claims later on.
** Facebook do not charge a platform fee for donations, or for card transaction fees. They do not process Gift Aid claims, but simply pass on the data to charities to later manually submit claims to HMRC.
