How it works?

Our legitimation process

Sanctions Screens

Every account on LaunchGood is screened against over 400 sanctions lists which includes global sanctions, regulatory and, Anti Money Laundering enforcement lists. We also make sure to screen beneficiaries for accounts raising funds on behalf of someone.

Request Documentation

We review as necessary documentation in support of the fundraising cause.  We also ensure connected accounts are the most appropriate ones to provide a clear path of funds distribution to the final beneficiary.

Enhanced Due Diligence

For campaigns raising funds outside of G7 countries, and especially in OFAC sanctioned jurisdictions, we conduct Enhanced Due Diligence checks and screen several layers to verify all associated parties involved.

Manual Pre-Launch Vetting 

Every campaign is manually reviewed by our team to make sure it follows our website guidelines. We do not allow any campaigns to incite hate or violence towards any other party.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does LaunchGood verify every cause?
We review supporting documentation in order to verify the fundraising cause. Most importantly, we verify that the individuals and entities raising funds are not problematic to engage with, on any global sanction lists, fraudulent or anti-money laundering lists. Whilst conducting our reviews should we be alerted of any suspicious behavior we will withhold funds if need be, and ensure we establish legitimacy of the campaign before releasing funds.
What about bad actors?
Our team conducts comprehensive reviews on our campaign creators to ensure we are not working with any problematic groups or entities. Should we discover fraud or any activity against our community guidelines, we will blacklist the flagged user from using the platform again and proceed to refund all their raised fund back to the donors.
