ORGANISATION DETAILS

The names and addresses of the authorised applicant, the organisation, will be provided in order that GoodHub Platforms Limited is able to carry out its Anti Money Laundering (“AML”) checks. These details will be required for the principal applicant for an GOODHUB.COM crowdfunding page.

GoodHub Platforms Limited reserves the right to reject the application from any organisation where this information is not provided.

GoodHub Platforms Limited has complete discretion to accept the fundraising application or not following AML of the principal applicant.

GoodHub Platforms Limited’s decision to accept or reject an application is final and there is no obligation on GoodHub Platforms Limited to share its reasons for its decision with the organisation.

THE ORGANISATION’S PROFILE, CAMPAIGN AND EVENT PAGES (“FUNDRAISING PAGE(S)”)

The organisation’s fundraising pages contain information submitted by the organisation, including a video clip, where the organisation has opted to submit such a clip.

By registering an organisation and creating and publishing fundraising page on GoodHub, the organisation understands and agrees that information about the organisation and its fundraising pages and associated content will be published for public distribution and inspection. The organisation agrees that GoodHub can distribute details of the fundraising pages via its own communications, including, but not exclusive to, email, newsletter, media communications and social media communications.

By starting the listing, the organisation confirms to GoodHub Platforms Limited and the donors that the information contained in the organisation’s fundraising page is complete, accurate and up to date.

FEES

There is no charge to submit a campaign application and if your request is eligible and approved then there is no upfront charge or subscription fee for listing on GOODHUB.COM

GoodHub charges a marketing fee for its services and is calculated for each individual profile page, regular giving and crowdfund a project campaign, and sponsored and ticketed event page.

The marketing fee has three components calculated as follows:

  1. A payment processing fee of 1.4% + 20p of the money donation only.
  2. A Gift Aid data collection, processing and submission fee of 5% of the Gift Aid added to donations by donors.
  3. GoodHub invites donors to add a voluntary contribution to their donation.

The Gift Aid data collection, processing and submission fee will be chargeable on the Gift Aid amount if the client organisation or its representatives chooses to submit the claim to HMRC.

GoodHub operates a “fair fee” policy in respect of the voluntary contribution. Specifically, if the aggregate voluntary contributions in any billing period is less than 5% of the money donations in that period, then the organisation will be liable for the difference between the voluntary contributions and 5% of the money donations, and the difference will be charged to the organisation.

GoodHub will raise an invoice each calendar month for all funds raised in the previous month irrespective of when and whether funds are transferred to the organisation.

All fees and charges exclude VAT. The marketing fee to registered charities should be zero rated for VAT, but organisations are advised to seek professional advice as each circumstance varies.

The marketing fee will be deducted from the transfer of the money donations such that consequently where GoodHub collects Gift Aid on behalf of the organisation, then the transfer of that Gift Aid will not be subject to further fee deductions.

GoodHub is a business and needs to earn revenue to provide its service that helps its client organisations make a difference to the people, families and communities that both support and rely on them. By registering and creating a fundraising campaign on GoodHub, the organisation agrees that ALL donations made to that organisation as a consequence of publishing, marketing or communication the organisation’s fundraising campaign should be made through the dedicated fundraising campaign page on www.GoodHub.com.

If, as a consequence of publishing, marketing or communicating the fundraising campaign, the organisation receives any donations that are not received through GoodHub.com (“offline donations”), then GoodHub reserves the right to charge to the organisation its aggregate marketing fee (“additional fees”) on any or all offline donations received. Additional fees will be invoiced and deducted from future money or Gift Aid transfers by GoodHub to the organisation. If outstanding transfers from GoodHub to the client organisation are insufficient to cover the additional fees then payment will be due within 7 days of the invoice date.

If in the opinion of GoodHub, the organisation persistently seeks to bypass GoodHub to transact donations as a consequence of publishing, marketing or communicating the fundraising campaign, then GoodHub reserves the right to withdraw the campaign with no notice or further explanation.

TRANSFER OF FUNDS

GoodHub will transfer relevant net funds to the client organisation on or around the 15th day of a calendar month as follows:

Regular Giving Campaigns – donations for a calendar month to a “Regular Giving” campaign are transferred directly to your nominated bank account on or around the 15th of the calendar month immediately following the calendar month in which the donations were made.

“Crowdfund a Project”, sponsorship, raffle or event campaigns – donations are transferred on or around the 15th of the calendar month immediately following the calendar month in which the campaign was closed.

Note that Gift Aid is transferred to you directly from HMRC so is dependent on their processes and service levels.

Note that GoodHub reserves the right to retain funds if, in its exclusive opinion, it has been unable to satisfactorily verify that the recipient bank account belongs to the client organisation until such time as it has been able to do so.

RE-APPROPRIATION OF DONATIONS

If we are unable to transfer the funds donated to or raised on behalf of your organisation via GoodHub for any reason whatsoever, then GoodHub may re-appropriate the relevant funds at its discretion. Circumstances include but are not limited to:

  • where your organisation is registered on GoodHub but has not provided its bank details within twelve months after registration, or
  • where your organisation has been nominated as the preferred recipient organisation, but you subsequently choose not to register on GoodHub or provide bank details for the transfer of funds within 12 months after being notified by GoodHub that we are holding funds on your behalf.

For the purposes of this section, the right to “re-appropriate funds” shall mean the right for GoodHub to use or apply the relevant monies as GoodHub determines at its sole discretion including, without limitation, making donations to other charities or non-profits, enhancing other donations, or for its internal business purposes (including retaining the funds).
