Q. What is Lifecrowdfunding.com?

 

We’re different.

 

Life Crowdfunding is a charity fund raising website that charges no fees. That’s right, no fees. We even pay the payment transaction costs from our own pocket so that 100% of your donation goes to your charity.

 

We know how difficult it can be to raise money so we know it hurts when popular charity websites take 5% ‘transaction fee’ from every donation. Most of the time, when people donate through these sites, they don’t even realise 5% is being charged as a fee. On top of that, if the campaign target isn’t met, the charity gets nothing!

 

Not with us. 100% of your donation goes to the intended recipient, irrespective of whether they reach their target or not.

 

We have angels who fund our costs and we even crowdfund to support Life Crowdfunding.

 

We are 100% transparent. Raise and donate with us and be assured you will give 100% of the amount raised to your cause.

 

Q. What is Crowdfunding?

 

Crowdfunding is a way for you to raise funds online for a project, person or cause from a large number of people. There are many forms of crowdfunding, but at Lifecrowdfunding.com, we only support crowdfunding for social causes.

 

To run a crowdfunding campaign, you create a crowdfunding page and promote it to as many people as you can. Hopefully, your friends will share it with their friends and both of them can donate directly to your page. We'll then collect and transfer the funds to you and handle all the technical side, like receipting. Next, you do the project that you fundraised for and update your supporters to show them what you've spent the money on.

 

Q. What types of campaigns do we run?

 

We believe in empowering people to help so we accept campaigns from individuals, social enterprises, not-for-profits, for-profit commercial organisations and community groups, as long as they are looking to do good in the world. 

 

Note that while we do accept social cause campaigns from religious organisations, we don't accept campaigns that are explicitly about promoting any particular religion.

 

Q. What do I need to receive payments and how long will it take to receive my funds?

 

Each campaign will be collected to a Stripe account. These are easy to create and means you can control all of the monies being donated. The money is usually credited instantly to stripe and can take up to 48 hours to go into your bank account.

 

Q. Do I have to sign up to donate?

 

No, you can donate by pressing the "contribute" button on the campaign. 

 

Please note, if you don't sign up to the site, your donation will appear as anonymous.

 

Q. How quickly can I get my campaign approved and active?

 

We aim to review and approve campaigns within 24 hours. 

 

We may have some further questions regarding the campaign so please be prepared to speak with a helpful member of our team :)
