The YouHelp Guarantee: Have peace of mind knowing that you will have the tools to make an informed decision before you contribute.

YouHelp requires each campaign organizer to enter their name, and the name of the nonprofit and the EIN of the nonprofit that will benefit from the funds raised.  The campaign organizer is asked to provide the final determination letter from the IRS, to upload an image of themself, 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, Stripe and PayPal, our current payment processors, do their own very sophisticated checking of social security numbers and EIN verification.  The nonprofit must connect a business bank account and or 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.
