1. Introduction.

One of the privileges of being a Wisdom Trust member – i.e. a registered friend of The Wisdom Trust – is that you can build your entitlement to a special Wisdom Trust grant fund in your name.

Anyone, regardless of age, circumstances or even where they live in the world, as long as they’re a registered friend of The Wisdom Trust, can build their entitlement to a grant fund, increasing its value almost on a daily basis, if they wish to, and then use some or all the value of their fund to apply for one of our special grants.

There are four types of grants available and these are:- 1) an Eco Grant, 2) an Education Grant, 3) a Social Grant and 4) a Charity Grant.

2. Getting Started.

Your special Wisdom Trust grant fund starts at a value of zero when you first register. Then, little by little, from that point on, you can add value to your fund every time you log in and use the website's free built-in education programmes to earn credits (Fundraising Credits – or FC’s), or shop online or take advantage of any of our special free offers.

You'll get 1 FC for every £2.50 you spend through our shopping mall - but do remember to fill in the simple online form to claim your shopping FC's. You'll also get 1 FC for each question you answer correctly in either the Wisdom IQ or Wisdom Aware programmes. On top of all that, there are a minimum of 28 FC's available every day just for looking at a range of new facts.

These FC's build up on your account and add to its value. Thsn, every time you accumulate 250 FC's, they’ll be converted automatically into 1 Wisdom Point within the system and that’s worth 25p to your grant fund.

And there are a range of special bonuses available to you when you first start. Some of these add immediate value to your fund (for example, the Kingfisger Bonus, which is worth £1.50 straight into your account the first time you become ‘active’ – i.e. when you accumulate 200 FC’s in any one month (or 60 FC's if it’s your first month). Others, on the other hand, add additional FC's to your account (such as the Merlin Bonus which can add up to 10,000 FC’s to your account as long as you qualify for it within the first 2 weeks of your membership).

The Maple Bonus adds over 2,000 FC’s to your account when you make your first purchase through the shopping mall and the Sparrow Bonus adds another 2,000 FC’s when you introduce at least four other people who subsequently shop online via the website.


3. Spread The Word And You Get Even More Benefit.

Furthermore, if you help us spread the word and introduce your friends, family, classmates and colleagues, primarily to help you support your own favourite charity or good cause with their votes, an added benefit of that is that your own personal Wisdom Trust grant fund accrues extra value for the credits (FC's) they earn through their use of our website and whenever they shop online or take advantage of any our special free offers.

This is because our website recognises the fact that you introduced them and that we wouldn’t have the opportunity to engage with those new members without you introducing them in the first place. So it’s almost like a special ongoing ‘thank-you’ to you for helping us spread the word.

For example, 250 FC's earned by one of your friends is worth 25p to their grant fund, but 32p to your grant fund. And when they're awarded any of our bonuses, you get something too, as long as you're active (200 FC's a month or 60 FC's in your first month.


4. Build A Network And Your Grant Fund Really Starts To Grow.

Not only that, the bigger your own personal network or ‘family tree’ of friends and family grows, the more people will be helping build the value of your own Wisdom Trust grant fund.

So your fund will accrue extra value for the activity of your friends’ friends and family, the friends of your friends’ friends, and so on, down through at least eight generation of friends and family. In fact, your fund will grow every time anyone in your personal network logs in, uses the website’s built-in education programmes to earn credits, shop online or take advantage of any of our special free offers.

5. So Just To Recap - How To Build Your Grant Fund.

Well the first and easiest way is to just log in and earn yourself a few Fundraising Credits (FC’s) every day. You’ll get 1 FC just for logging in each day and additional FC’s every time you take part in one of our education programmes, where you can earn 1 FC for each correct answer.

You can also look at a small number of new facts every 2 hours during the day and earn extra FC’s for each fact you look at, as long as you tick the box provided to confirm that you’ve done so.

Currently, over 400 FC’s are available every day per member through such ‘educational’ activity.

The second common way to earn FC’s is to shop online through The Wisdom Trust Shopping Mall, where you choose the shop you want, shop online as you normally would and afterwards, claim you special shopping FC’s using the appropriate link. Once your purchase has been confirmed you’ll be awarded 1 FC for every £2.50 you spend. You’ll also earn a small cash sum which will be transferred directly into your personal fund.

One other way to add additional FC’s and cash amounts to your account total is to take advantage of some of the special bonus incentives available, especially to new users, and detailed elsewhere in the website together with the respective qualification criteria.


6. Don't Try To Do It All By Yourself.

So far, we've outlined what you can do to add value to your own personal Wisdom Trust grant Fund, but as we mentioned just now, it will also accumulate value for those same activities when done by people you personally introduce to The Wisdom Trust, and by the people they introduce, and so on.

It’s also important to note that your fund will grow slowly and steadily from your own activity but the program has been designed to better benefit those who help us fulfill our own charitable objectives by spreading the word and introducing their friends, family, classmates and colleagues to The Wisdom Trust.

So the advice we would offer to all new users is do a little bit yourself – and do it often – but get your friends and family involved as well and encourage them simply to do the same as you. In no time at all, you could have built a network of thousands of people, most of whom you won’t know, but they’ll all be raising money for your personal fund and for your own favourite charities every time they’re online.
