Knowing exactly how the money is spent is important to us. It’s important to our charities. And we know it’s important to you, too. That’s why we’ve made transparency one of our core values.
For every online action that is concluded successfully, regardless of its promoter (charity, private donor, VIP, company…), CharityStars will withhold a fee that varies from 15% to 35% depending on the amount of setting up and promotional work involved, plus an operating cost of 15€ or 50€ per action.
All of our charitable beneficiaries are aware of the exact commission fees due to CharityStars.
This means that the charity will receive a percentage of the funds raised that varies from 65 to 85% per action where third parties are not involved.
In addition to the CharityStars fees, where necessary, the following will be deducted:
- 2% flat rate to cover payment processing fees;
- Third party costs (e.g. agency fees, travel expenses, payment due to private donors…). Where it is possible to estimate these costs before launching an action the charity will be fully informed.
In the case of an activity being set up directly by a private donor, it is he/she who establishes what percentage of the proceeds will be devolved to charity (never less than 5%) and whether to withhold a commission by means of personal reimbursement.
Private donors are collectors, designers, art gallery owners, artists or anyone who is qualified to put his/her articles up for sale (objects and/or experiences). Once the articles have gained approval from the CharityStars team, they can be put up for sale online on the condition that a percentage of the proceeds go to a charity that is registered on our platform.
In the case of gala dinners and, therefore, Live Auctions, the commission due to CharityStars will be agreed with the charity before the event, taking into consideration a range of variables including but not limited to: size of gala, expected number of attendees, network coverage.
