Gulf for Good challenge participants collect sponsorships which goes to a pre-identified and approved charity project, in the area where the public challenges take place. Charity funds are the donations marked for the project supported by the challenge. Gulf for Good challenge participants raise charity funds which goes to a pre-identified and approved charity project, in the area where the public challenges take place.
Our policy is not simply to hand out money, but rather to identify important and well thought-out projects that will use the funds wisely. Where necessary, we work closely with other charities to ensure that:
- money is properly allocated and spent; and
- no future misuse is made of anything paid for by G4G
No money raised by challenge participants goes to G4G's administration, which is funded solely by subscription fee and donations.
G4G has a very sound monitoring system for all charity funds as per our governance policies. All the charity expenditures are approved and monitored by the Charity's accountants, auditors and Board of Governors.
We endeavor to notify both, the charity, and the challengers on any particular challenge on the total funds raised, by approximately one month after the challenge ends. This is in order to ensure that all monies raised through online donations and otherwise, are received and collated as accurately as possible before being published.
All challengers are requested to track their individual amounts raised on various online platforms, and are responsible for making sure that these payments are sent to G4G office via correct channels.
We do not give estimates of total funds prior to a challenge taking place but rather prefer to publish the actuals once we have collated the funds received via multiple payment gateways.
We share regular updates on how this money is used by the charity; of stages of construction/update and completion of the project. All this information is public and available on our website.
