Raise Money with JustGiving.com

    Ummah Welfare Trust has linked up with JustGiving.com to provide you with an easy and effective way to collect sponsors and money for your own fundraising campaigns.

    With Ummah Welfare Trust, every single pound raised through Just Giving, including the Gift Aid, is allocated towards a fundraiser's intended project.

    It takes just five minutes to set up your own web page at JustGiving.com. Just log on to www.justgiving.com/uwt and follow the instructions to build your page. Once your page is complete, you can email the page's address to family, friends and colleagues. They will then be able to donate online with a credit or debit card.

    Advantages of setting up your own page:

    * It's quick and easy
    * Personalisation, for instance including your own message and updating the page as your fundraising progresses
    * Ask friends overseas to donate as well
    * Forget about the hassle of cash and cheques - money is transferred securely and quickly
    * It's available to all, so you could be raising money from people you've never met
    * Every time someone sponsors you, you receive an email notification
    * Access a page which gives you a breakdown of the money you raise through your campaign

    Important Information

    * Please note: Depending on the type of payment and card used, JustGiving will deduct a certain amount on money donated. Please contact JustGiving for further details.

    * Please ensure any projects that you are fundraising for are being implemented by Ummah Welfare Trust. Stay updated via the website.

    * For those intending to fundraise on behalf of a deceased or another person, please seek the family's, or relevant party's, permission before doing so.

    * For fundraising events or activities, please seek Ummah Welfare Trust's advice. The charity though will not be held responsible for any fundraising methods (and possibly their consequences) used by fundraisers.

    * To ensure your fundraising progress can be tracked, please email banktransfer@uwt.org before starting your Just giving page. This is especially important for projects in which feedback is provided, e.g. water wells and masjid construction

    * Money donated for emergency appeals can only be allocated to the appeal as long the appeal is running. Any money donated after an appeal is closed will be allocated to the relevant country and then to the Most Needed project within.

    * We advise donors NOT to pay their Zakah donations through JustGiving as there is a percentage that these online charity donation services charge on, and deduct from, your donation before it is deposited in Ummah Welfare Trust's account. Due to this deduction, your Zakah obligation may not be fulfilled. If you still wish to donate your Zakah via these services, please add a bit more to your donation to make up for the shortfall.
