GiveWheel operates two ways for charities to receive money. The first, is through GiveWheel's 'donor assist service' where we provide a service to assist donors with their giving, by reference to the public domain information for recipipent parties. In this case, no action is performed by the recipient and money can be received passively by a charity or non-profit. No services are provided to any charity or non-profit, charities do not have accounts on the platform and GiveWheel is not classed as a 'professional fundraiser'. GiveWheel has no prior relationship with these charities, however pledges to donate the funds to them, without taking platform deductions.
The second way is the standard 'GiveWheel for Charities membership'. This is free for charities, however involves a charity actively managing an account on the GiveWheel platform. This is the recommended approach, and offers a number of benefits as described below under the section 2. 'GiveWheel for Charities'. In this case, GiveWheel would legally be considered a 'professional fundraiser' for your charity. Note: A charity can decide at any point to take advantage of GiveWheel platform services, at which point donor assist for this organisation will be converted to a charity platform account.
