1. Ten Easy Steps To Start Making A Difference..

For all new members who wish to help us make a difference all over the world, there are just 10 simple steps to get yourself started.


1/01 Get Registered.

Simple! Just sign-up as a friend of The Wisdom Trust. There is no charge for this.

If you haven't already done so, Click here to register yourself today and start making a difference.


1/02 Log In Every Day.

If you can’t log in every day, try to log in at least 4 or 5 times a week. You’ll be awarded 1 FC (or Fundraising Credit) each day, when you log in, on your first visit that day.

1/03 Accumulate 10-20 FC’s Per Day - Answering Questions And Looking At New Facts.

You can use our online education programmes to earn additional FC’s throughout the day. For example, you’ll get 1 FC for each question you answer correctly on Wisdom IQ and Wisdom Aware, but the easiest way to earn FC’s is to look at a range of new facts. All three options are available from the Learning section of the LIVE zone.


1/04 Aim For 60 FC’s As Soon As Possible.

A total of 60 FC's should be your first target. This will qualify you as an 'active' member and you should aim to achieve this objective as soon as possible. For example, if you log in just 5 times over your first week and aim for 12 FC’s on each visit, you’ll quickly reach 60 FC’s.

It's important to achieve 'active' status as soon as possible, preferably within the first week of your membership, as this will ensure you're allocated any special bonuses you become eligible for.


1/05 Shop Online Whenever You Can.

If you shop online already, all you need to do is divert some of your normal online shopping through The Wisdom Trust shopping mall. We are partnered with thousands of shops and stores so it’s more than likely that your own favourites are already on board.

We’ll earn a small commission for every valid purchase, whilst you’ll earn 1 FC for every £2.50 you spend and a small cash bonus into your personal grant fund at the same time.

Not forgetting of course that all our listed organisations will also benefit because the main donations pot from which they all get a share will just have got a bit bigger thanks to your purchase.

And all this is done at no extra cost or inconvenience to you.

If you don’t shop online already, maybe now is as good a time as any to start doing so.


1/06 Search The Internet Via The Wisdom Trust Website.

At the top of every page of The Wisdom Trust website, within the header area, you’ll find a search box which you can use for some or all your regular online searches.

Try to get into the habit of running at least 1 search a day via the website, but the more you can do the better because we get paid every time you use our search facility – at no cost or inconvenience to you.

Plus, of course, all our listed organisations will benefit because the main donations pot from which they all get a share will just have got a bit bigger thanks to your effort in simply searching the internet.

IMPORTANT: Do not abuse this facility by running lots of pointless, made-up searches via the website in the misguided belief that you’re doing your bit for charity. You’re not! In fact, that would be fraud and we could be penalised for such activity. So we strongly advise you not to engage in such worthless and potentially damaging exercises. Just run as many of your normal regular searches as you can via the website – and no more!

1/07 Use Our Price Comparison Partners.

Check out the best prices for anything you want to buy, either in the immediate or in the near future using our price comparison engines in the Pricecheck section of the Shopping Menu. Use this facility as often as you need to since we get paid every time you do so.

Plus, of course, all our listed organisations will benefit because the main donations pot from which they all get a share will just have got a bit bigger thanks to your online price comparison.

IMPORTANT: Once again, do not abuse this facility by running lots of pointless, made-up price comparisons via the website in the misguided belief that you’re doing your bit for charity. You’re not! In fact, that would be fraud and we could be penalised for such activity. So we strongly advise you not to engage in such worthless and potentially damaging exercises. Just run as many of your genuine price comparisons as you can via the website – and no more!


1/08 Take Advantage Of Our Free Offers And Special Deals.

Check out our range of freebies and special offers on every visit to our website. We’ve always got a great range of incredible deals available for our members to look through and take advantage of and new ones are always coming online.

You could be awarded extra FC’s for every freebie or special offer you take advantage of and what’s more, your personal grant fund will grow little by little every time as well.

Plus, of course, all our listed organisations will benefit because the main donations pot from which they all get a share will just have got a bit bigger thanks to your action.


1/09 Spread The Word - Introduce Your Friends And Family.

If you find it both rewarding and enjoyable to engage with The Wisdom Trust, it’s quite likely that many of your friends and family will feel the same as you, especially if they are also charitably minded and wish to make a difference., like you. So why not reach out and introduce some of your friends, family, classmates, colleagues and neighbours.

The suggested target is for each new member to introduce two additional members from among their friends, family, classmates, colleagues and neighbours over the first two weeks of their membership. No other introductions are necessary but if you choose to continue introducing one or two new members each month, your personal grant fund will grow even quicker.


1/10 Help Your friends And Family To Get Started Too.

Once you’ve introduced some of your friends and family, try to encourage them to do the same as you. Your own personal grant fund will benefit as well, every time any of your own friends and family engage in the suggested 9 activities themselves, so make sure you encourage them to be as active and as dedicated as you.

The same applies to their friends and family and so on, down through many generations of friends and family. So the wider and bigger your own network of friends and family grows, the quicker and bigger your own personal grant fund will grow as well.

2. Wisdom Trust Grants For Individuals.

Everything you do on The Wisdom Trust website will be helping to raise funds for charities and good causes all over the world, making a difference to the lives of millions of people everywhere. But here at The Wisdom Trust we understand that it’s not enough to offer help just to organisations. We need to offer help to individuals as well.

Of course, it goes without saying that collectively, charities and good causes of all kinds do a substantial amount of good work in all communities everywhere and help lots and lots of people. However, even though their work is amazing, it’s just not possible for them to offer the same level of help to everyone, all the time. Furthermore, sometimes there might be certain groups of people who aren’t entitled to their help, for whatever reason.

So, with all that in mind, The Wisdom Trust has set up a range of universal grants for individuals – grants that everyone is entitled to, regardless of age, background, personal circumstances or even where they live in the world. Wisdom Trust grants never have to be repaid and there are no conditions attached to them.

As long as they are registered as a friend of The Wisdom Trust, users can build their entitlement to a grant, simply by accumulating credits (known as Fundraising Credits or FC’s) through their activities on The Wisdom Trust website – all of which are delivered free of charge, as well as through other regular online activities such as searching and shopping (when done through The Wisdom Trust website) and by taking advantage of some of the free offers available from time to time.

There are four types of grants available: a) Eco Grants to help people cover the costs of energy-saving initatives to reduce the carbon footprint of their home or office; b) Education Grants to help students offset the ever-spiralling costs of higher education; c) Social Grants to help people with the additional costs often associated with making healthier food choices at the supermarket; d) Charity Grants to help fund your favourite cause and support their work and campaigns.
