1. Introduction.

Unfortunately, it would be impossible to give an accurate answer to this question due to the high number of variables and unknowns which contribute to how fast and to what value the sum set aside for you within The Wisdom Trust programme can grow. But what we can predict without any doubt is that it mainly depends on you (together with your staff and supporters) and how much care, time and effort you all put into the programme.

2. It's Up To You And Your Supporters!

Clearly, if you and everyone connected with your organisation put no effort in, you’ll see no reward at all, but if you follow our suggestions, introduce your staff and supporters and encourage them to engage in a given level of activity – on a regular basis – you’ll see your predicted regular donation from The Wisdom Trust grow slowly and steadily towards a more-than-worthwhile value over a period of months and years. Do more than we suggest and the benefits to your cause will be even greater. It’s up to you.

What we can predict, albeit only in general terms, is that with regular, targetted activity from you, your staff and your supporters, the regular donation set aside for your organisation could grow to something worth between a few hundred and a few thousand pounds over a period of time. However, if a large enough number of your supporters do substantially more than we suggest below and do it consistently over a period of time, and if the 'Wisdom Trust' network of your staff, supporters, friends and family continues to grow, it could be possible to predict that a figure even as high as in the tens of thousands of pounds (or more) can be achieved over 3-5 years, together with smaller regular donations in the meantime. But once again, we must emphasise that it’s up to you, your staff and supporters.


3. Suggested Level Of Activity To Start Your Fund Growing.

So what do you and your supporters need to do and what would be considered an appropriate level of activity? Well, here are ten suggested activities for all those who wish to support you in order to help your cause and ensure that the donations made to your organisation from The Wisdom Trust grow at a steady and healthy rate from day one.

3.1. Log in every day.

3.2. Accumulate at least 10 FC’s each day – 20 FC’s would be better. The easiest ways to accumulate FC’s is through our education programmes, getting 1 FC for each correctly-answered question or for looking at new facts. Occasionally, you’ll be awarded special gift credits and you can donate these at any time to a charity of your choice. We strongly recommend you aim for at least 200 FC’s each month. If you do so, the system will flag you as an active member and this ‘active’ status will make sure that you benefit from all the bonuses and awards you’re entitled to.

3.3. Vote for your two favourite charities – you get 1 vote every day (for 2 charities each time) and 1 extra vote for every 10 FC’s you accumulate each day.

3.4. Search the internet using The Wisdom Trust search box (available within the header on every page). Try to run at least 1 search a day via the website, but the mor you can do the better. 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 activities. Just run as many of your normal regular searches as you can via the website – and no more!

3.5. Check out the best prices for anything you want to buy in the immediate or near future using our price comparison engines in the Pricecheck section of the Shopping Menu. 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 activities. Just run as many of your genuine price comparisons as you can via the website – and no more!

3.6. Check out our range of freebies and special offers. We’ve always got a great range of freebies and special offers available for our members to look through and take advantage of. You could be awarded extra FC’s for every freebie or special offer you take advantage of and what’s more, your charity/grant fund will grow little by little every time as well.

3.7. Shop online. If you already shop online, all you need to do is simple redirect some or all your normal online shopping through The Wisdom Trust shopping mall instead. You’ll be awarded 1 FC for every £2.50 you spend and your charity/grant fund will grow little by little with every purchase.

3.8. Take advantage of as many of the special incentive bonuses available to you. Most of these award you extra FC’s for particular achievements (one award is for a massive 10,000 extra FC’s) but some award you a cash amount too, straight into your charity/grant fund.

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

3.10. Encourage your friends to do the same. Your own charity/grant fund will benefit as well, every time any of your own friends and family engage in the above 9 activities themselves, so make sure you encourage them to be active as well. 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, the quicker and bigger your own charity/grant fund will grow.

The more of these ten activities you, your staff and supporters participate in on a regular basis, the bigger the potential for the fund set aside for your own cause within The Wisdom Trust programme.

4. Every Organisation, Large Or Small, Can Benefit.

And it’s not just the most popular organisations who get donations either. Every charity, good cause or ‘not-for-profit organisation which gets even just one vote will be allocated their allotted share of our fund, in direct proportion to their share of all the votes cast over each three month period. So a charity with 5% of the votes cast one quarter will get 5% of the funds raised during that period, or a good cause with 0.015% of all the votes cast over the three months, will get 0.015% of the funds generated over the whole quarter.

It’s very fair, entirely democratic and a great new way for every charity or good cause, anywhere in the world, to raise some often-badly-needed extra funding for their work, issues and campaigns.
