So much more goes into giving than just the money, but unfortunately all too often that’s the only thing people supporting charities are valued on. With everydayhero however, these supporters can now give back to their favourite causes by fundraising, donating or volunteering and actually see and track all the voice, time, effort and money they give through their personal Giving Footprint. This real-time feedback makes them feel great as they see the impact their actions are having and encourages them to give more, more often!
Why should I register?
As you can see above, there are a lot of great benefits to registering with everydayhero. Not only can you build your own fully branded fundraising websites, but you will also gain access to new supporters through everydayhero at no extra cost! Your supporters can give to your cause in the way that suits them (fundraise, donate, volunteer) and see and track everything they give which makes the experience even more engaging and rewarding.
We also take care of all the administration too, which means all donations are automatically processed, reconciled and receipted and the funds deposited into your nominated bank account each fortnight.
Are there any costs involved?
The great thing about everydayhero is that registering is FREE and there are NO ongoing membership costs. The only cost of using our platform is a small 4.25% per transaction processing fee (to the exception of recurring donations charged at 1%) plus credit card fees of 1.6% for Visa and Mastercard and American Express (2.8%). So what are you waiting for?
What do I have to do to register as a charity member?

As soon as your charity is approved, you can start encouraging your supporters to give to your cause through everydayhero or build your own fundraising website for a campaign or event.
How is everydayhero different to other consumer giving websites?
everydayhero is not just a new way for your supporters to fundraise, but instead a new way to give. Because all too often, the problem with trying to make a difference to the world, is not knowing whether you are making a difference, or how much of one.
