Finances

Hopefully you will be satisfied by the care we have taken to create a system which is financially sound and working totally in the interest of Jan and Keith.

Please Donate now and help someone who has suffered serious life-changing injuries through no fault of her own. You will be taken to our GoFundMe page. GoFundMe is one of the best known fundraising organisations in the world. They have raised more funds than any other organisation – $5 billion to date. They charge us no platform fees but if you donate, you will be asked to make a small contribution. This is at your discretion and you can choose how much you want to pay in addition to your donation. On that page you will find a link to bring you back here if you want to read more about Jan’s story.

Overview of the systems
The donation and funds management systems are designed to ensure that all funds are properly accounted for and that as much of the money as possible goes directly to the purchase of equipment and services that Jan needs. Expenses are being kept to an absolute minimum. Wherever possible, volunteers will be providing their help completely free. Only claims for exceptional expenses will be considered by the committee.
 

About the donation system
GoFundMe is one of the best known fundraising organisations in the world. They have raised more funds than any other organisation – $5 billion to date. They charge no platform fees but if you donate, you will be asked to make a small contribution. This is at your discretion and you can choose how much you want to pay in addition to your donation.

 
About the fund management system
We have a bank account in the name of the Jan Attack Appeal. Once funds are transferred from GoFundMe to the bank account, any release of funds must first be agreed by the committee. If agreed, any release still requires the signatures of two separate committee members. The financial accounts will be published here on the website and will show how how any withdrawals have been spent.
