Frequently asked questions

We will direct your donation to wherever the funds are needed most. Whatever size your gift we can assure you that it will be spent effectively and prudently. Currently, we spend about 90p in every £1 on charitable activities including direct programme/project expenditure and support costs. The remaining 10p is spent on fundraising activities to help us raise more funds and on administration to ensure that the charity is effectively governed. In 2018/19 we raised £16 for every £1 spent on fundraising activities.

 

None of our partners deduct any platform fees from donations however GlobalGiving and JustGiving give the option for donors to add a voluntary contribution to their donation towards the cost of maintaining and running their platforms.

CAF Donate – 2-3% depending on the payment method you use plus a one-off flat fee of £1 for each new direct debit arrangement;

GlobalGiving – 3% on all donations;
