Transparency

Knowing exactly how the money is spent is important to us. It’s important to our charities. And we know it’s important to you, too. That’s why we’ve made transparency one of our core values.

For every online auction that is concluded successfully, regardless of its provider (charity, private donor, VIP, company, etc.), CharityStars will withhold a fee that varies from 15% to 35% depending on the amount of setup and promotional work involved, plus an operating cost of $15 - $50 per auction.

All of our charity beneficiaries are aware of each item’s donation rate and fee structure.

Each charity receives a percentage of the funds raised that varies from 65% - 85% per auction, where third parties are not involved.

In addition to the CharityStars fees, where necessary, the following will be deducted:

  • 2-4% flat rate for payment processing fees;
  • VAT;
  • Third party costs (e.g. agency fees, travel expenses, payment due to private donors, etc). When possible, estimates of these costs are provided to the charity prior to launch.

 

When working with a private donor, the donation percentage and commission withheld, by means of personal reimbursement, is at the discretion of the donor. CharityStars has a minimum donation rate of 5% for all private donations accepted. The private donor must select a charity benificiary that is registered with CharityStars

Private donors are collectors, designers, art gallery owners, artists or anyone who is qualified to put their articles up for sale (objects and/or experiences). Once the articles have gained approval from the CharityStars team, they are put online with the donation percentage clearly listed under the bid box for the item/experience.

In the case of gala dinners and, Live Auctions, the commission due to CharityStars will be agreed with the charity before the event, taking into consideration a range of variables including but not limited to: size of gala, expected number of attendees, network coverage.
