The GIVEPRIV Foundation
- The GIVEPRIV Foundation is supervising the donation process to make sure every donation ends op with the right beneficiary at minimal costs.
- The Foundation also uses third parties to run the daily business, the office, website(s), automation, privacy facilities, security and ICT.
The GIVESAFE Foundation
- We use a second independent foundation called GIVESAFE that serves only one purpose; it collects, manages and distributes the funds on behalf of the donor.
- The donation funds are kept separate from all other cash flows.
- This way your donations at all times are safeguarded even against the very unlikely bankruptcy of the GIVEPRIV Foundation or one of the companies involved in the donation process.
- Both Foundations were founded in the Netherlands to promote anonymous donations on a worldwide scale with the highest level of privacy protection possible to attract a category of philanthropists who want to keep their identity hidden while donating to any charity of there liking. Hopefully this will ultimately stimulate the grow of donations in the world.
- In order to fulfil this job the total organisation only requires a 3 % commission with a minimum commission of € 50 per donation and 4% with a minimum of € 100 if you donate with a cryptocurrency. The costs for the (international) bank transfers and the conversion of currencies if needed are deducted when a donation code (digital voucher) is redeemed.
- We do not use a payment service provider like Stripe, PayPal and third party payment systems like Alipay, Google Pay and Apple Pay. Though they offer good services, they all collect data which affects your privacy and they are often expensive.
- So ultimately less is left for the beneficiary and your privacy is gone.
- Do we need to say more?
