YouHelp guarantees that you will have the tools to make an informed decision before you contribute.
YouHelp requires each campaign to enter their name, and the name of the person or company/nonprofit that will benefit from the funds raised, and the zip code of the location. The campaign organizer is asked to upload an image of them self, and the URL of at least one social media URL, the business website (if one exists) which are representative of the people or company involved in the campaign. The About the Campaign Organizer section should also give you valuable insight into the Campaign Organizer.
YouHelp also provides you with a way to email the campaign organizer and ask a question and to read the comments of other contributors.
WePay and PayPal, our current payment processors do their own very sophisticated checking of social security numbers and EIN verification. The campaign organizer must connect a personal or business bank account and credit card to the payment processor, in order to receive the funds.
While YouHelp never touches or controls the money being transacted between the contributor and the campaign, we want to assure there are no bad actors on our platform. If you see or know something, please report it to us immediately and we will bring it to the attention of the payment processor.
If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud from a person or organization soliciting relief funds on behalf of storm victims or have knowledge of fraud, abuse, waste, or mismanagement involving disaster relief operations, contact the National Center for Disaster Fraud toll free at (866) 720-5721 or firstname.lastname@example.org (link sends e-mail).
