If I do not wish to receive promotional material from AGF or its sponsors or other third parties I must advise AGF in writing or via the opt-out procedures provided in the relevant communication or Event registration portal. Governing Law 22. The governing law of this agreement is the law of the state of Victoria (‘Jurisdiction’).

I have carefully read and reviewed this document. I understand the terms fully, including the risk warning, exclusion of implied terms and release and indemnity and I execute it freely and voluntarily, without inducement or coercion.

Overview

  1. The Platform is an online fundraising facility. GoFundraise acts as agent of the Not-For-Profit Organisations (NFPs) and other users of the Platform facilities (Other Clients) (Other Clients and NFPs together and each a Beneficiary) with limited authority adequate to facilitate the collection, accounting and payment of funds raised. The GoFundraise agency is limited to the delivery of online services and consequential accounting. Beneficiaries and Users are given access to functionality that enables them to create fundraising campaigns, build web pages and contact their networks. All such actions are the actions of the relevant Beneficiary or User. As a general proposition, GoFundraise accepts no liability whatsoever for the actions of Beneficiaries or Users on the Platform.
  2. Every Not-For-Profit Organisation (NFP) listed on this Website has a contract with GoFundraise authorising Us to collect donations on its behalf, and we take reasonable steps to substantiate the Not-For-Profit status of NFP’s during the registration and contracting process.
  3. Despite clause 6, GoFundraise accepts no liability for ensuring that any Beneficiary applies the proceeds received from a donation in any particular way. If a User is dissatisfied with a Beneficiary's use of any donation the User makes through the Platform, the User should contact that Beneficiary directly.

GoFundraise fees

  1. GoFundraise charges a small service fee of between 0.49% - 6% (depending on the plan of the Beneficiary and where donation is facilitated) for its services. The fee is deducted from gross donations collected on behalf of the Beneficiary, or Organisation. Regular giving payments are charged at 1.95% Service Fee + GST to the Beneficiary plus card transaction fees. Direct donations to a Charity's fundraising portal (located at www.gofundraise.com.au/beneficiaries/search) are charged at the amazingly low administration fee of 0.49% service fee + GST and processing cost. Other transactions are charged at the rate based on their plan.
  2. GoFundraise also recovers credit card processing fees from the gross donations. These are currently at the market rate of 1.1% (inc gst) + $0.20 (inc gst) per transaction for Visa & Master Card, and 1.98% (inc gst) for American Express and 2.1% for Paypal (GST exempt) . These fees are subject to change without notice. Transactions to multiple organisations in a transaction may incur an additional $0.20 fee per beneficiary.
  3. An example of the way this fee structure works for a direct donation to a Charities fundraising portal is as follows:

    Total Donation $30.00
    Administration fee of 0.49% $0.15
    GST @ 10% $0.01
    Credit card processing fee 1.1% $0.33
    Credit card fee per transaction $0.20
    Total fees $0.69
    Donation to charity $29.31
    Charity Reclaim GST $0.04
    Total Net Amount To Charity $29.35
