Sponsors

Question: Why would i sponsor someone?

Answer:

By sponsoring, you help two times:

  •  You are supporting the challenger in achieving his  / her goals. 
  •  and your donation will go to a charity project.

 

On top of that the Charity Organisation created a project meaning that it is directly clear what your contribution will be used for. This is more exciting than having just a bankaccountnumber where the money vanishes into?

Question: Why am I charged on top of the selected amount when sponsoring?

Answer:

When you want to sponsor a challenge, you can only chose a fixed amount (varying between 5 and 1000 €).

Depending on the Payment method, You will get extra charged. This extra charge is the Bank Transfer Cost.

So for example if you pay 5€ With PayPal, you will get charged 5.75€ - the 0.75€ will go to the Bank and Online Payment Provider.
But if you chose iDeal as a Payment method, you will get charged 5.3€ - the 0.3 € will go the Bank and Online Payment Provider.

this ensures the 5 € will get into the Youlcee platform and if the challenger succeeds, the 5€ will go entirely to the Charity project.

Youlcee BVBA will not take a percentage on any sponsoring made.

 

Question: What happens to my donation?

Answer:

  1. You sponsor without account (Guest sponsoring)

Your money will be stored on a separate bank account until the challenge gets stored. Upon closure, your money will get transferred to the charity organisation

  1. You sponsor with account (Full sponsoring)

Your donation will get stored on a separate bank account. The money will remain on the account until the closure of the challenge (you sponsored). Depending on the result of the Challenger the money will go to the Charity project or will return to the Sponsor (in the form of credits on the website). 

The amount of money that will get transferred will also depend on the module selected by the Challenger

    • HERO-module: Every bit counts!!! Let's say someone committed to walk 100 km in one go but only walked 80. The challenger will be able to mark a 80% success rate, resulting in 80% of the donations going to the Charity organisation and 20% returning to the Sponsors  (as credits on the website)
    • SUPERHERO-module: All or Nothing. Let's say the challenger managed to walk 98 out of the promised 100 km, all money will return to the Sponsors (as credits on the website)

Question: Can i receive a tax certificate?

Answer:

It is possible to receive a tax-certificate if the following requirements are met;

  1. you pay taxes in Belgium
  2. the charity oranisation can issue tax certificates
  3. you sponsored a minimum amount of 40 € 
  4.  the challenge you sponsored gets completed succesfully (only required when sponsoring with account)

Credits

Question: How do i get credits?

Answer:

Question: How can I trace back the amount of credits i own?

Answer:

Log on to your profile and select the SPONSORSHIP & CREDITS tab

In here you will find the amount of credits that have been returned on top. Just below it you can see how you received them (via which challenge).

Question: Can I get my credits cashed back?

Answer:

Unfortunatly this is not possible.

All sponsored money need to end up at a Charity organisation. this is the purpose of the website and should be the intention of any donation. As such credits or donated money will never be returned.

But you can allocate your credits to any open challenge. Or you can create your own challenge and assign to your own challenge. You can assign credits when connected toy your profile.

Question: Can I buy credits to assign them at later stage to challenges?

Answer:

Currently , the only way to get credits is by sponsoring a Challenger who does not end his challenge successfully. Only in this instance will you get credits in return.
