Today we have received amazing news from the European Parliament. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation has been awarded the esteemed European Citizen's Prize, which honours exceptional achievements of European citizens and organization.
This method of raising funds is tailored for companies running their own web portals or websites, which would like to participate in our charitable efforts by establishing an online Collection Box - a charitable collection held on their online 'premises'.
You can choose from different online fundraising options:
- online payment gateways
- international money transfers
- cryptocurrency exchange
- group purchases
- mobile app fundraiser
What to remember when holding your online fundraiser?
- Each money collection should be marked clearly as being held in aid of the Grand Finale fundraiser. Each collection should be held by officially registered Collection Centre. You can't state that the collection is held by the Foundation.
- Please make sure to let the donors know about the results - tell them how much you have raised together!
- You should e-mail [email protected] to confirm all PR materials, marketing ideas and artwork usage.
- Whenever possible, you should make sure that the payment processor handles the donations without any commision.
- Promoting and advertising the fundraiser is the Collection Centre's responsibility, but your initiative will be featured on our website and in other promotional materials produced by the Foundation.
If you have an option to process online payments with PayU - online payments partner of the Foundation - let the team at [email protected] know about it. As a partner of the entire Grand Finale fundraiser, PayU does not charge any commission for processing donations. It means that the entirety of the sum raised online goes towards the purchase of medical equipment.
