Maanch has an API interface with the Charity Commission for England & Wales, and also cross checks organisations from Scotland and Ireland through their publicly available Commission databases. We ensure that on registration organisations do not have any open investigations by the regulator, nor have they filed their accounts late.
Each project is manually assessed by our team before being published on our website against both content criteria and available information about the organisation online. Unless and until a project passes our due diligence criteria, it is not published for funding on our platform.
Before any organisation can publish projects on Maanch, our payment provider STRIPE carries out all necessary AML and KYC checks to ensure that the financial information provided by charities are legitimate.
