The Donations Fund
Half of the total income of The Wisdom Trust over each three-month donations window is allocated to our Donations Fund. At the conculsion of each three-month period, this fund is set aside and used for donations to all our registered charities and good causes. The size of each donation is decided through an online vote by our members.
Each member can log in and vote every day, if they wish to, and sometimes more than once per day when they earn Credits by using other areas of The Wisdom Trust’s website (see below).
For example, a charity with 10% of the votes during a donations window will be allocated 10% of the Donations Fund that quarter, or a cause with 4.6% of the votes will be allocated 4.6% of the Donations Fund. And so on.

How Credits Are Awarded
All members (both individual and organisation) will be awarded Wisdom Trust Credits via our online learning programs and can aspire to be top of the Hall of Fame – daily, weekly or monthly – with certificates of achievement when they finish in the top positions.
Every time a member earns a Credit, this will add additional value to the funds set aside for their own personal Wisdom Trust Grant Fund over the current three-month donations window, as well as for their favourite cause. Every time any member introduced by a charity or good cause, clocks up 250 Credits, we’ll award an extra 100 Credits to that same charity or good cause. And more Credits equates to a larger share of our quarterly Credits Fund.
The Bank Of Wisdom
When the charity or good cause (or any other member ) – or indeed any of the people they introduce – submits new items for our Library of Wisdom, they’ll earn additional Credits for each item they submit (once it’s approved). Once they’re live on our system, whenever someone else views, likes or shares any of those items, or answers any of their questions, the original contributor will earn a further Credit.
So by building up a collection – large or small – of submitted items within the Library of Wisdom, any charity or good cause or any other member, will be creating a special ‘Bank of Wisdom’ which will keep earning Credits, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – and adding to the funds set aside for their own Wisdom Trust Grant Fund and their nominated cause every quarter.
Such items for submission can be about the four big issues of poverty, environment, healthcare and world peace, or about anything else of interest to the member – including subjects such as history, geography, science, music or literature. Items could also be about local issues, culture or even the history of local organisations, landmarks or sports clubs. Furthermore, users can submit items such as tips (eco, health or thrifty), quotations, jokes, recipes or reviews (books, movies, music, places or theatre for example).
If other users find the facts, questions or other items interesting, then they’ll like or share them or answer the questions and the original contributor – and their nominated favourite good causes – will benefit – every time! Click below for more information about our Library Of Wisdom.
