Frequently Asked Questions
FundMyCause is a direct M2M donations platform where members voluntarily give and receive donations each month. It brings forth a new way of raising funds for various causes, whether it is for personal needs or a host of other worthy causes, such as schools, non-profit organizations, clubs, etc.
When you join FundMyCause you join a community of like-minded members who are interested in donating to each other. You get the opportunity to willingly donate monthly to the members who invited you to become a member and you in turn can get willing donations from people you invite to become members.
There are 2 ways to get involved: This first one is highly recommended. If you have been invited to join, click on that member's referral link and you will be instructed to fill out a simplified registration form. In the event that you were not invited by family/friends, then you can join by simply going to www.fundmycause.net and click on either the "Join" or "Register" button (both go to same page). You will then be referred directly to the next available and qualified random member.
Yes, it is available worldwide.
You only need 0.05 btc to get started and to upgrade to stage 1 (Contributor). For current Bitcoin pricing & conversion, visit: www.coindesk.com/calculator. Though you will need 0.05 btc to get started and donate, you must fund your Bitcoin account with at least 0.06 btc to cover the small transaction fee.
Since donations are being given freely and willingly (nothing is being purchased), there are no refunds. However, since all subscription payments happen member-to-member, and it is up to members to reach an agreement amongst themselves if they allow refunds or not. FundMyCause has no control over the donations transferred between members.
We only use Bitcoin to make it easy for members to donate to each other, and to allow the system to automatically upgrade each member after the Blockchain Hash ID has been entered.
Yes you can, but it is strongly recommended that you do not stack them. For example, if you create another personal account under your first account, this is considered stacking, and is highly unethical.
The only two places we highly recommend you get a Bitcoin wallet is at https://Blockchain.info/wallet/# or www.coinbase.com
You should upgrade to the next level the moment you are able to so that you don't miss out on donations coming to you for those levels. But the same level you don't need to upgrade before 30 days.
It is the date your next monthly donation for that stage is due.
No, you can upgrade to any stage at any time. However, it is highly suggested that you follow the guideline on the "How It Works" page to ensure a solid progression through all stages/levels.
Yes. That's why it is best to upgrade the moment you are able to. If you don't, you will miss donations for the stages you have not upgraded to if there are members below you on those stages who upgrade faster.
A pyramid scheme means that only the top members of the hierarchy get paid, whereas FundMyCause allows every member to receive the same amount by doing the same amount of work. You can receive more donations than the person who signed you up.
You will only need to donate for each stage every month if you want to receive donations from members at each stage every month.
This may happen because you entered the wrong Hash ID when you upgraded, or because you did not follow the safe rule of only using blockchain.info to make your donation. Double-check the Hash ID, and copy & paste it into your back office. Never try to type it manually. You can then either leave the Upgrade page and log back into your back office to see if you are upgraded. If not, you must confirm that you are only using a wallet vendor that do their transactions through the Blockchain. Contact support if you are still having issues.
From your back office at http://fundmycause.net/login, simply click the "Wallet / Bitcoin Wallet" tab, then enter your wallet address and wallet website (recommended: https://blockchain.info/wallet/#), and click the "Submit" button to save it.
Yes you can, as long as you don't stack accounts.
If your monthly donations are in arrears, for any stage that you have upgraded to, then the donations that would have come to you, for that particular stage, will bypass you and go up to your stage 1 upline, if they are qualified. For example: If someone on your level 3, in your matrix, is either upgrading to stage 3 or is making their monthly donation for stage 3, if you are qualified, you will receive that donation. If you are not yet on stage 3, or you are in arrears on your stage 3 monthly subscription, the donation will bypass you and go to your stage 1 upline (if they are qualified to receive a level 3 donation), meaning they are already on stage 3 and they are current with their stage 3 monthly donations. It works the same way with the regular upgrades and the monthly subscriptions. So whatever you do, don't get skipped!
Yes, because you can only have 2 members direct to you; everyone else you refer will be directed to another qualified member, but will still donate to you when they upgrade to whatever stage they are on.
Though FundMyCause does promote the main site, with every qualified member's link in a rotator, no amount of donations (if any) can ever be guaranteed, as immediate results will depend on how many people you refer and how much they donate to you. Therefore, if your downline becomes large, you may receive up to 84.3 btc in donations each month. However, if you fail to invite any people, and if you have no downline, then it is almost certain that you will not receive any donations.
You can contact support via email at [email protected]
, or via the private Facebook Group. (Please contact your inviter for Facebook Group access.) If you have a more urgent matter, you can submit a support ticket via the "Support" tab at the top of the site.
FundMyCause has 6 stages (Contributor, Helper, Supporter, Fundraiser, Humanitarian, Philanthropist), and 6 levels (Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4, Level 5, Level 6). Your level doesn't necessarily always reflect your stage, and the same is true for your downline. To know exactly where everyone is, and whom is to donate to whom, simply login to your back office and scroll down to "Referral Summary" section of your Dashboard, then click on "Referrals" row of any level to see which members are there. Under the members username, you will see "Upline: (username)". This is the username of the person that member is connected to and have sent donations to. Sometimes, it will be your username as their upline, sometimes it will be a member in your upline. But this will help you know whom has actually donated to you.
FundMyCause uses hosting with CloudFlare, that includes DDOS protection, and is always monitoring the site for any suspicious activity. However, to ensure the long-term safety of your account, it's best to change your wallet ID every so often.
The FundMyCause platform is made available world-wide, and FREE of charge.
FundMyCause is a Direct, Member-To-Member (M2) Donations Platform.
The system was designed in such a way that it can be used by Fundraisers, such as Charities, Schools, Clubs, Non-Profits, family, and personal financial needs, etc.
The donations are NOT collected by the Administrator, nor are they automated by the system, rather donations are sent directly and personally from one member to another member, from one member's Bitcoin Wallet to another member's Bitcoin Wallet.
