What is

Kimberley Smith - 30th Aug, 2023 is a free online fundraising platform for anyone wishing to raise money for a registered UK charity. Fundraisers and charities choose to ensure that every penny raised as part of a fundraising event or challenge reaches the charity.

With there are no subscriptions fees or set up charges for charities, no transaction fees added to donations and no contributions requested from fundraisers or donors to support the platform.

How can be truly free?

Every aspect of the platform is funded by Wonderful Payments. That means staff don't take a salary, and all transaction fees and other running costs are covered by Wonderful Payments.

Furthermore, donations made via the Wonderful fundraising platform don't rely on credit and debit card payments, which can be costly and inefficient. Instead, as an FCA Authorised Payment Institution, Wonderful uses Open Banking instant bank payments to allowing donors to securely transfer money directly to the charity's bank account - and the whole process is authorised by the donor's existing online bank account or mobile banking app. This new, simple and secure payment method makes transactions much more efficient and cost-effective for Wonderful and allows the platform to scale.
