During the registration process, you will need to provide your group’s registered charity number.
You will also need to provide details about your organisation’s bank account and upload a bank statement dated within the last 3 months so we can verify the details you submit.
This can be an online statement, a scanned copy or photo of an original bank statement, or an original bank statement. The statement must contain the account number, sort code, and account name.
Once you have completed registration, we will process your group’s application. If everything is ok and you have set up your direct debit, your group's Localgiving page will go live straight away so you can accept donations.
The validation process involves working closely with charity regulators, including the Charity Commission and Companies House, so we can confidently verify the authenticity of an organisation, its management, finances and objectives.
If we require any further information, we will be in touch, otherwise once approved; your group's Localgiving page will go live and will be ready to fundraise online!
