Raising Funds For Good Causes
Our goal is to support people, causes and global communities – firstly through grants to help individuals make positive changes in their lives; and secondly through donations from our fund to support the work of charities, good causes and any other not for profit initiatives, all over the world.
Raising Funds For Your Favourite Charities and Other Causes In Your Community
Once you’re a member of The Wisdom Trust you’ll be able to nominate charities, good causes and other not-for-profit projects and organisations who could benefit from funds raised through The Wisdom Trust, both within your own community and beyond.
You only need to supply their name and an appropriate email address, preferably after seeking their permission, so we can send them an invite with information about how we can help them and how they can get started.
We make donations from our funds, at least once every three months, to support charitable causes of all kinds, working to make a difference in local communities, or operating on a wider scale, either nationally or internationally.
Our four main issues are poverty, healthcare, environment and world peace, but we also support many other causes and institutions such as:
- Schools, Colleges, Universities, Youth Groups & Museums
- Sports Clubs, Community Groups & Keep Fit Initiatives
- Choirs, Orchestras, Music & Religious Charities
- Hospitals, Clinics, Hospices & Healthcare Causes
- Farming, Food Banks & Animal Charities
- Libraries, Advice Centres & Early Years Education
- Marine Conservation & Humanitarian Causes
- Environmental Causes & Disability Charities
- Charities/ Foundations Run By Companies
- Benevolent Organisations & Many Others.
Our members and other people who use our website vote online to help decide which organisations receive a donation from our quarterly Donations Fund.
Each cause receives a donation in direct ratio to the number of votes they received over that quarter. So each and every organisation which receives even just one vote during each quarterly donations window will be allocated something from our Donations Fund.
If your charity, good cause or other not-for-profit initiative (including corporate charity foundations and funds) is not already listed as a potential beneficiary of donations from the Wisdom Trust, click here to register your organisation today.
We will feature a ‘Donate’ button on each organisation’s profile page for those users who might wish to donate directly to that cause and later on we will introduce a ‘matched funding’ facility for larger donations.

Making A Real Difference For Global Charities
Every time you log in and use The Wisdom Trust website, by participating in our growing network of both individuals and organisations, you’ll be helping us raise funds not only for your own favourite causes but for hundreds of other charities and good causes in communities just like yours all over the world.
All kinds of charities, both large and small, will benefit every time you log in. So you can do something truly amazing every day – just by using our website.
And all at no cost whatsoever to yourself – our promise is that we will never ask you for money or for a donation of any kind.
Additional Funding Through Wisdom Trust Credits
Friends and supporters of a charity or good cause will also be able to earn special Wisdom Trust Credits via our online learning programs and aspire to be top of the Hall of Fame – daily, weekly or monthly.
And every time someone earns a Credit, this will add additional value to the funds set aside for their nominated cause over the current three-month donations window.
Quite simply, every time a staff member or other supporter introduced by a charity or good cause clocks up 250 Credits, we’ll award an extra 100 Credits to their charity or good cause. And more Credits equates to a larger share of our quarterly Credits Fund.
You’ll be awarded Credits when you participate in our learning and information programs or even when you use our Market Place for any of your normal online shopping at any of thousands of popular online stores and merchants – all at no extra cost or inconvenience to yourself.
But even better than that, when a charity’s supporters introduce their own friends, family and colleagues, our unique ‘community network’ model will recognise the link between them so every time these new members earn Credits, some small additional value (by way of extra Credits) will filter up to the nominated cause of the member who introduced them.
In effect, what this means is that your favourite cause could benefit from your friends’ learning and online shopping, and to a lesser degree from the learning and online shopping of your friends’ friends too – and so on. So make sure you use the tools provided elsewhere in the website to introduce as many of your friends, family and colleagues as possible.
The Bank Of Wisdom
When the charity or good cause itself – or indeed any of its supporters, staff or families – submits new items for our Library of Wisdom, they’ll earn additional Credits for each item they submit (once it’s approved). Once they’re live on our system, whenever someone else views, likes or shares any of those items, or answers any of their questions, the original contributor will earn a further Credit.
So by building up a collection – large or small – of submitted items within the Library of Wisdom, any charity or good cause or any of their supporters, will be creating a special ‘Bank of Wisdom’ which will keep earning Credits, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – and adding to the funds set aside for their nominated cause every quarter.
Such items for submission can be about the four big issues of poverty, environment, healthcare and world peace, or about anything else of interest to the member – including subjects such as history, geography, science, music or literature. Items could also be about local issues, culture or even the history of local organisations, landmarks or sports clubs. Furthermore, users could submit items such as tips (eco, health or thrifty), quotations, jokes, recipes or reviews (books, movies, music, places or theatre for example).
If other users find the facts, questions or other items interesting, then they’ll like or share them or answer the questions and the original contributor – and their nominated favourite good causes – will benefit – every time!
To kick things off, we recommend that members use our community section to join any groups that interest them and enjoy all the learning opportunities they provide. They can comment on and add to any discussions they find there or even start their own groups about subjects that interest them. And everything they do will earn them even more Credits. They’ll even earn Credits when other members join their groups or comment on, add to or share any of their discussions.
It’s so easy!! Get involved today.

Wisdom Trust Community WISH
Our Wisdom Trust ‘Community WISH’ scheme ensures we can offer support to whole communities. Members can volunteer as Wisdom Trust Ambassadors, forming local Wisdom Trust groups – our ‘experts on the ground’ – to reach out and help people and organisations in their local area – offering Wisdom, Inspiration, Support and Hope.
Wisdom Trust Ambassadors will help ensure we connect with all local charities, good causes, schools, hospitals and other not-for-profit initiatives, including corporate charity foundations, in their communities.
We can offer all these causes a new source of regular funding, publicity for their campaigns, activities and events via our website and social media platforms, as well as Wisdom Trust Grants for their supporters, staff and families – and of course for everyone else in the community too.
Our local Wisdom Trust Ambassador teams also help connect the vulnerable, the elderly, families and those that are unwell with all available resources and organisations which can improve their lives. Our Wisdom Trust Ambassadors will become specialists in their communities, so that wherever help is needed, they can make a real difference.
For example, we could help the elderly by making sure they’re aware of local groups and local grants, meals on wheels, special transport schemes and help to heat their homes in Winter. We could deliver their medication and help them buy food and meet other people so they’re not lonely.
Wisdom Trust Ambassadors can also help mothers with young children so they can also get all the help they need by connecting them with local groups, nurseries, healthcare and charities which offer advice and assistance.
Wisdom Trust Ambassadors make a difference in local communities so everyone can make positive changes in their lives. We could even encourage local tradesmen or businesses to offer free help – maybe just a few hours a month – to assist others in the local community. This could include lawyers, accountants, decorators, plumbers, financial advisors, carpenters, electricians, gardeners and handymen.
We are working on plans to help companies with business ‘build-back’ grants and to set up hardship funds to benefit their employees who have been negatively impacted as a direct result of the Covid pandemic. Our Wisdom Trust Ambassadors will be able to assist us in reaching out to any interested companies in their areas. We’ll promote their products and services on our Market Place and support their charity work and corporate social responsibility activities too.
Finally, our Wisdom Trust Ambassadors can support, enhance, coordinate or establish local events such as Christmas Markets, Summer Fairs, Arts Festivals, Carnivals, Music Concerts, Sports Competitions, Countryside Rambles, Park Runs and Keep Fit Classes.
