How donations on Makerble work

The Charities

Projects on Makerble are run by charities registered by the Charity Commission in the UK. As Makerble develops, we may begin to include projects run by other organisations in the UK and from around the world.

The Donation Process

Makerble is a subscription service. We move your monthly donation around to crowd-fund different charity projects according to your donation mode.

Donation modes:

1. Cherry-pick Projects mode

You choose the specific projects you want to donate to initially in the Change Store. Once those projects have been funded, Makerble will find similar projects for you to donate to.

2. Ready-made Collection of Projects mode

You choose a ready-made Collection of Projects to donate to. Your donation will fund projects that the Collection Owner adds to this Collection. Collections can be managed by companies, charities, other users or Makerble’s Editorial Team.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK tax payer the government will, in certain circumstances, add a certain amount to your donation. At the moment, this is 25pence to your project(s) for every £1 you donate. Please check the HMRC website for more information and the current figures at the time of making your donation.

Makerble Fees

Makerble charges charities a Transaction Transparency fee equivalent to 4% of the donation. When Gift Aid is applied to a donation, the Makerble Fee is deducted from the Gift Aid amount added.

Makerble’s payment partners charge an online payment processing fee. At the time of writing these fees are as follows. Please check the payment providers’ websites for up to date fees.

Go Cardless Fee for donations made using direct debit: 1% of the donation Stripe Fee for donations made by credit and debit card: 2.4% of the donation plus 20pence

Change Metric

Makerble provides impact reporting tools to charities. We trust charities to publish accurate data but we are not liable if they publish data which is subsequently found to be inaccurate.

While Makerble has taken steps to ensure that the charities using its service are operating above board – for example, we ensure that they are all registered with the UK Charity Commission, – Makerble will accept no liability if the charities, their staff members or representatives break the law or act fraudulently. Should Makerble discover that any charity is acting fraudulently, Makerble will endeavour to take reasonable steps to freeze any donations in transit, investigate and/or terminate the charity’s account as soon as it reasonably can. In the event that a charity’s donations are frozen in transit and the charity is found to have been acting fraudulently, Makerble reserves the right to distribute those donated funds to one or more charities on Makerble, if permitted by applicable law to do so.

To the full extent allowed by applicable law, you agree that we will not be liable to you/or any third party for any consequential or incidental damages (including but not limited to loss of revenue, loss of profits, loss of anticipated savings, wasted expenditure, loss of privacy and loss of data) or any other indirect, special or punitive damages whatsoever that arise out of or are related to the Makerble Services.

any claim that the use of the Makerble Services by you is defamatory, offensive or abusive, or of an obscene or pornographic nature, or is illegal or constitutes a breach of any applicable law, regulation or code of practice;

Makerble shall not be responsible for any breach of these Terms and Conditions caused by circumstances beyond its control.

A person who is not a party to these Terms and Conditions shall have no right under the Contract (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of these Terms and Conditions but this shall not affect any right or remedy of a third party which exists or is available apart from that Act.
