Sorry, no. Why don't you check with CWL? They might want to know anyway if there is a problem with the site.

When I looked at Bemycharity there was a registration fee and 50 quid a month admin charge to the page owner! Try www.justgiving.com - its free, and dead easy to set up!

happyrunning - justgiving.com is not free! It costs the charity you are raising money for £180 plus VAT per year. They then also take 5% of all donations made through the site! You get nowt for nowt these days!!

Thats crazy,it might explain why CWL have no link with just giving.I spoke to CWL and they never mentioned any admin fees.Thanks for the heads up folks.

There arent any admin fees Via CWL
Its bmycharity rather that BE maybe thats how you went wrong?

Its dead simple to set it up

I appreciate the charges to the charity, but its probably worthwhile as that and the 5% has to be weighted against the fact that the charity gets the money IMMEDIATELY, and can therefore earn immediate interest etc. Much better I think than pledges on sponsor forms and having to wait and gather it all in. However, maybe CWL have a special deal with bmycharity, because when I tried to set up my charity on it the charges were definitely v high - I think registration was 150 plus 50 pound per month - all payable by the page owner!!! Personally I just couldn't afford it!
