Why is it good for Charities?
Through Force for Good, charities can benefit from being able to connect with wider, more engaged audiences, drive deeper and more meaningful relationships and ultimately dramatically increase donations. This and so much more!
My charity appears but we haven’t registered yet. Why is this?
Force for Good has partnered with Percent and their Donor Advised Fund, The Intelligent Foundation (Charity Number: 1192508), to process all donations to charities outside of those officially registered on the platform. Your charity is appearing, because you are registered with Percent. For more information on this please contact Percent at email@example.com
How do I sign up?
To register as a charity on Force for Good you must have an official Charity Registration Number, with a registered board of trustees and be listed on the Charity Commision website. If this is you, please do get in touch with the team today at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the sign up fee for charities?
We structure our payment processes and fees to try and ensure that 100% of all money donated through Force for Good goes to charity. In fact it doesn't come through us at all!
To facilitate this, we use payment processing services of Stripe and Percent.
Recieving donations directly through Stripe
If your charity is registered with Stripe, all donations will be sent directly to the Stripe account registered and will not by-pass through Force for Good. Stripe is a FCA registered payment processor. Please note this is only available where your chosen charity has registered with Force for Good and has Stripe account, and that Stripe will charge fees for payments (set out further below).
For full details about setting up a Stripe account to facilitate the direct payment of donations, please refer to our Charity Terms & Conditions here.
Recieving donations indirectly through Percent
If your charity is registered with Percent, your donation will be paid indirectly via Percent and their Donor Advised Fund: The Intelligent Foundation (UK Charity Number: 1192508). Using Stripe, the funds go directly to the Intelligent Foundation, who then passes all donations to registered charities that have passed their Anti Money Laundering and Compliance checks. This makes it easy for donors to make a donation to the charity of their choice.
For full details about recieveing donations indirectly via Percent, please refer to our Charity Terms & Conditions here.
Neither? No problem, get in touch with the team at email@example.com and we can talk you thorugh the options!
