As I'm doing London this year I though I'd go all hi-tech and do the online donation stuff and was going to do it via Virgin Money as they sent me a promotional thing about it until I read this little gem: 3. Virgin Money Giving fees and payment process You are not charged for using Virgin Money Giving services. All payments are to be made by payment card. Please note that we do not accept payment by cash or cheques. All charities pay a one off Â£100 fee to register with Virgin Money Giving and a 2% administration charge on all donations (excluding the Gift Aid element) and event fee payments to enable Virgin Money Giving to covers its costs. Virgin Money Giving does not charge an administration fee for the collection of Gift Aid on behalf of the charities. Is that the norm? Anyone used it or is Just Giving a better site to use? I thought that they'd just take a %age of the donation. I know they have to make a bit of money but charging a ton to register I reckon is taking the proverbial.
