How you can be sure that your donation is safe

We have a procedure called ‘KYC’ (Know Your Customer) to verify the identity of any new charity who joins us. We accept registrations from registered charities in our supported countries; all their contact information is displayed in ‘About Page’ from the menu of all fundraising pages, which you can use to perform your own checks.

Our payment processor, Stripe, also has its own strict verification process to onboard new charity accounts, to prevent fraud and money laundering activity. Stripe is a PCI Service Provider Level 1, which is the highest grade of payment processing security. When you donate through Visufund, your donation is sent directly to a charity-owned Stripe account, and is not held by Visufund at any time.

If you have any doubts or concerns, we advise you not to donate and to contact us if you want to report a suspicious page.
