Who can sign up to Visufund?
Anybody. If you are simply making a donation through a page, you do not require an account. There are two distinct account types - individual and UK registered charity. We also accept registrations from CASC's and other not-for-profit organisations.
How much does it cost to use Visufund?It is completely free for anyone to sign up and publish fundraising pages on Visufund. We don’t charge any mandatory subscription fees to charities or members, which means more money reaches good causes. When money is made through a page, we deduct a small fee of 5% to cover our running costs. In practice, this means we’re able to:
- Constantly monitor the website
- Respond to queries and provide help to charities and individual fundraisers
- Keep up-to-date with best practice and regulatory changes
- Continue developing more templates and facilities to make the experience better every time you visit
Payment fees are also deducted from donations by our trusted payment processors. Rates vary according payment method and current volumes, but we are constantly working to reduce these to a minimum.
In addition, we offer costed products to charities, should they have any additional requirements using our service.
