    I’m developing a fundraising website and I’m wondering if you could give me some information on legal issues I could be facing?

    The website is a distributed-donation platform that left people donate small donations (typically £1) between multiple charities.

    Here’s a description of how I plan on managing payment: Users/donors purchase credits via paypal in these increments: £10, £20, £50, £100, £200 (a paypal processing fee is added on). 1 credit = £1. Then they browse through charity profiles clicking the +£1 button when they want to donate. This effectively donates £1 to that charity. Of course they can click it multiple times or choose a higher value to donate. At the end of each calendar month I will tally each charity’s total donations, and deposit into their bank account. For charities to register they must provide an original bank statement from the last 3 months which states their bank account details.

    I plan on introducing a small subscription fee (~£5-£10) though ONLY if they make over that in donations that month.

    Any help you can offer would be much appreciated.
