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?

Currently our donation fee options are as follows:

Keep 100% model: You keep 100% of your donation. The donor pays card fees on top of their donation and can choose to give an optional donation to Chuffed.org. This model is not available for EU/UK campaigners due to payment processing regulations). See Example

Shared Model: This means that the campaigner will pay the fees (2-3%) out of each donation. The donor can then choose to give an optional donation to Chuffed.org on top of their donation. See Example

Flat Fee Model: The campaigner will pay the card fees (2-3%) plus a Chuffed.org platform fee (4.9% + GST/VAT) out of the donation. The donor pays nothing on top of their donation. See Example

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.
