As an integral part of the memorial website service, MuchLoved has a sophisticated online donation facility so that your supporters can easily raise and display in memoriam donations to you..
An Events Fundraising Centre on each Tribute means that friends and family can all get involved by adding their own Event to support the progress of the fund.
Each event can be updated at any time with its own blog and also display its own sub-total which is also included as part of the overall fund total. The Tribute therefore offers the perfect hub to consolidate and display all these different fundraising efforts being carried out.
The donation service is in partnership with the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) and is an extremely economical donation processing solution with a charge of just 3.6% including card fee to cover all the donation processing, administration and gift aid service costs.
This means that a £20 credit card donation with Gift Aid processed using MuchLoved is over 40% cheaper than the identical donation made through JustGiving (Correct as at 1st March 2015). Great News!
There is also total fundraising flexibility on your fund as Events can have an end date or be ongoing and they can also be archived and re-opened (say for an annual memory event). Where appropriate, Events can be added to the fund simply for awareness-raising (rather than for donations) and they can also be linked to any 3rd party fundraising page where preferred.
A range of total-o-meters have been developed for both Event participants and Fund holders to use in order to track their fundraising progress towards an optional target.
It’s also easy to add offline donations (cash and cheques) onto the fund along with any donor messages to ensure that all funds collected for the Tribute are recorded, regardless of their source.
