What is Chuffed.org?

Chuffed.org is a crowdfunding platform for socially-conscious projects from around the world. We support individuals, not-for-profits, social enterprises and community groups to run awesome crowdfunding campaigns, all 100% free.


Is Chuffed.org a Social Enterprise?

Chuffed.org is a Social Benefit Company. That means that we operate for the benefit of our community. Directors of Chuffed.org are obliged to consider not just the financial impacts of their decisions but also the social, environmental and community impacts. If you want to learn more about Social Benefit Companies, check out the blog post we wrote about them  here


Does Chuffed.org take a fee for their work?

100% of the donation that a donor makes on Chuffed.org goes straight to the not-for-profit or social enterprise. Chuffed.org offers donors the opportunity to contribute on top of this to support fund our organisational cost.

The donor can reduce this down to a minimum of our credit card fees which are currently 2.0%-2.9% + 30c per transaction (depending on what country your campaign is from). If that’s a bit too much maths, here’s an example:

Example 1
  1. A generous donor clicks on $25 donation
  2. At the payment page, the donor pays a minimum of the $25 + the transaction fees (80c) = $25.80
  3. The not-for-profit receives $25 (100% of the donation)
  4. Our payment provider receives 80c
  5. Chuffed.org receives nothing
Example 2
  1. A very generous donor clicks on $25 donation
  2. At the payment page, the donor pays the $25 + an optional contribution to Chuffed.org of $2 = $27.00
  3. The not-for-profit receives $25 (100% of the donation)
  4. Our payment provider receives 80c (their transaction fee)
  5. Chuffed.org receives $1.20 (100% of which goes towards supporting more campaigns get off the ground)

We’ve found that when donors realise that we’re a social enterprise and what they contribute to Chuffed.org goes into supporting more great projects, they’re more than happy to throw in what they can.

What types of campaigns do you accept?

We have three tests on the type of campaigns we accept:

  1. You must be fundraising for a social, community or political cause
  2. You must be fundraising for a project with a defined outcome
  3. A reasonable person must be able to understand where the money is going

We don't care about your legal structure: you can be a registered charity, a private for-profit company, an individual just starting up or anything in between - we don't believe your legal structure dictates your ability to make social change.

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.
