    We also get a number of spam pages created, but also sometimes, we don't get notified of each campaign that is created, until we see funds showing up in RE. Then we have to backtrack, and figure out what funds those donations are supposed to be for. It creates unnecessary work for our finance team, when, if we simply were able to link the fundraising page correctly from the get go, we wouldn't have to backtrack.
    We've also noticed that some fundraisers don't put the correct details on their fundraising pages about the project that they're fundraising for - if we can have that precheck, to verify the details of what they're promising their donors, that saves everything the complications.

    We got hit with multiple spam pages created over the Memorial Day weekend. We were able to have JustGiving shut them down the next business day, Tuesday, but what would have happened if someone made a gift through one of these spam pages? We'd have to return the money and incur credit card fees. What if the spam sites were shared widely before they're shut down, it's a marketing problem waiting to happen that could hurt our reputation as a legitimate charity.

    I second what Kris Fry said. Spam fundraiser pages advertising questionable products are not something we want publicly associated with our brand. We need to be able to de-activate or decline personal fundraiser pages.

    Good morning!
    We have a lot of prospect partners who would like the approve the ability for someone to start fundraising, before they are able to build a fundraising page.
    For example: schools approving students/alumni fundraising pages with guidelines about what can be included on the pages, churches approving people to able to start fundraising for mission projects, etc.
    Happy to chat about it- amanda baldwin

    Hi there - can you please explain a little more by this suggestion?

    You want to approve any page that gets created by the fundraiser? In what case would that be? What is the risk that a fundraiser may be stopped from raising sums straight away because of a potential delay in approval? Love to hear examples of where such approval is required - assuming maybe where they have purchased a place in an event?

    Thanks

    Jamie
