What is Wonderful.org?

Wonderful.org is a free online fundraising platform for anyone wishing to raise money for a registered UK charity. Fundraisers and charities choose Wonderful.org to ensure that every penny raised as part of a fundraising event or challenge reaches the charity.

Why we don't take cards

We do not take a percentage of funds raised, ask for tips, or do anything that prevents 100% of donations going to the causes that charity supporters are so passionate about. We are inspired and driven by that passion.

Making a donation

Making a payment via Wonderful - whether as a consumer or a charity donor - needs to feel safe and secure. Wonderful is an FCA Authorised Payment Institution leveraging the speed, security and simplicity of Open Banking.

Payment security

Payments made through Wonderful are simple, fast and secure. Wonderful is an Authorised Payment Institution regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and uses Open Banking to facilitate payment initiation.

Supported payment types

Whenever someone makes a donation on a Wonderful.org fundraising page, the payment is transferred directly from the donor's bank account to the charity's bank account. This process is known as an instant bank transfer and is made possible by Open Banking.

Your charity profile

Charities listed at Wonderful.org manage their profiles via their Wonderful account at wonderful.co.uk. This includes adding or updating their charity's logo, cover image and description.

Creating QR codes

Wonderful charities already have access to a QR code for their direct donation page, which they can print on fundraising materials. But with a little technical know-how, a third party service can be used to create a QR code for a specific, pre-populated donation amount.

Tickets, events, raffles

HMRC has specific restrictions as to whether Gift Aid can be applied / claimed if the donor is receiving a 'benefit' in return for the donation (such as admission to an event, a raffle ticket, or an item purchased in an auction).
