We are now accepting donations via Givey. Givey is an online donation platform which is dedicated to serving “the forgotten 95%” of small charities. As such they don’t charge subscription or sign up fees. All fundraising platforms charge processing fees, most charge them to the charity but please be aware that Givey charges them to the donor.
The fee is 5% which you can choose to pay on top of your donation, or alternatively adjust your donation amount to fit. For example, if you wish to spend £10, you will need to submit a donation of £9.50, then the 5% fee will be added bringing the total to just under £10.
We are currently raising funds for our anonymous email support service as well as general operating costs. Costs involved include those for volunteer training sessions and for the anonymising software we will use.
If you would like to fundraise for us, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help set this up.
As our service users come from a wide range of professional backgrounds, we would like to have as broad a knowledge base as possible. We are currently putting together a training package for volunteers, and welcome input from all areas of the industry. If you would like to share information privately or on our website, or contribute to our volunteer training package, please contact us at email@example.com.
In particular at the moment we are looking for input from seafarers who have worked on private yachts, and from people with a background in maritime/international law.
