Whether you are already, or are considering fundraising for your sport online, the chances are that you are doing so via a crowdfunding website or app*
*(eg GoFundMe, MakeAChamp, Crowdfunder etc)
When collecting donations in this way, the charges/fees are usually decided by the type of account/page…these are generally divided into:
“personal” costing around 3%
“Charity” boosted by 25%*
*via Gift Aid
There are currently thousands of sporting campaigns that had no choice but to be set up as personal pages; falling short of the criteria required by most UK sporting charitable entities……
……because most of these entities are restricted by their governing documents/objects to grant funds only to those “in education” or “with a disability“
…we have no such restrictions
“To promote the participation of all people in amateur sport by making grants to develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as healthy, independent, responsible and mature citizens.”
Our remit covers “all people in amateur sport“ – that’s you, your team, your school or your loved one, irrespective of age, creed, gender or level.
Here’s how we can not only make sure 100% of your supporters generosity gets to its intended target but, where Gift Aid is applicable, boost it!!!
On the basis of our wider reach, it is highly likely thousands of GoFundMe & other previously ineligible UK crowd funding pages could now benefit from Gift Aid if they applied for our help.
