+ How do I know Walk The Talk chooses the best charities in their field?
Walk The Talk focuses on charities that have a proven track record, that address a specific and under-funded area, that are recommended through peer review by specialists on the area of focus. Due diligence is performed on each charity by our Donor Advised Fund to ensure that those charities meet legal and financial requirements.
+ How does the Donor Advised Fund work?
Our Donor Advised Fund (or DAF) is a fund held within charity Kindlink and allows donors to allocate their donations to the charities of their choice, rather than donating to individual charities.
+ Why not just donate to individual charities directly?
By donating via our DAF with KindLink, you only complete the donating process once, while still benefiting from tax-deduction if you are a UK taxpayer. The Walk The Talk-selected charities you chose to allocate your donation to go through an additional vetting process by registering with KindLink. We are therefore able to pool funds for maximum impact, charities will be notified of individual donations, and you will be provided with an impact report.
+ How is Walk The Talk funded?
As a non-profit foundation and restricted fund, Walk The Talk relies mainly on sponsorship for the running of its operations. Evening ticketed events only cover part of the organisation costs, and Circle donors contributions go 100% to our portfolio of charitable projects. If you want to support us, please follow this link!
+ Why 4 areas of focus?
We chose to focus on Arts & Culture, Environment & Science, Peace & Governance and Reduced Inequalities because we believe they hold the keys to a better future.
+ How many events do you organise a year?
We typically organise 1 to 2 events a month, evening talk, breakfast or dinner, except in August and over Christmas.
+ Are all Walk The Talk events free if I am part of the Donors Circle?
Yes, Donors are invited to all breakfast and evening events. They can then choose to attend fundraising events, profits of which go 100% to specific causes.
+ Can I suggest topics and speakers?
Walk The Talk welcomes suggestions of topics and speakers from Circle Donors.
+ How does the Projects platform work for skill-based donation?
Ongoing projects requiring skill-based help will be listed on the Projects page with a description of levels of commitment and a "Count Me In" button linking to a simple registration form. Once registered, we will be in touch to start accompanying your involvement in the project.
+ Do I have to be part of the Donors Circle to participate?
No you don't, everybody can access the projects platform.
+ How long are projects open for?
Projects are open for as long as the project owner is looking for help.
+ How will I know my involvement made a difference?
Once each project is completed, Walk The Talk will conduct an impact assessment for the benefit of all stakeholders involved.
+ If I cannot attend anymore, can I get a refund for my ticket?
We cannot propose a refund. However, if you let us know before the event, we can offer you to swap this ticket for another evening event of your choice within 12 months. Please check our full Booking Policy on www.walkthetalk.london/booking-terms-and-conditions
+ I would like to join the Donors circle but I am concerned about confidentiality
Walk The Talk treats confidentiality seriously. As a private circle, we adhere to the strictest confidentiality standards when it comes to our donors and their guests records and personal information. Walk The Talk encourages for attendants to refrain from identifying or describing donors or their guests in the public domain. If you are concerned about your privacy, please email email@example.com
