eJoulupuu collection collection costs

All professionally conducted charity collections have collection costs. The collection costs of the eJoulupuu collection are a maximum of 15% of the funds raised, which according to research is a very low collection cost percentage (more information: https://www.vala.fi/b/lahjoitusten-kayttoa-tehostettaisiin-uudistamalla-rahankerayskulujen-verotusta). The eJoulupuu collection is conducted in cooperation with Kotimaanapu, using their fundraising permit and fundraising platform. Kotimaanapu is a member of Vala ry, the Finnish Fundraising Association.

The collection costs consist of verified costs related to organizing the Joulupuu collection. Of this amount, two-thirds goes to Kotimaanapu, who maintains the eJoulupuu collection, and one-third goes to Joulupuu ry. All operational costs are reported to the National Police Board. Collection permit RA/2020/639.

Kotimaanapu is responsible, for example, for the bookkeeping of the eJoulupuu collection, coding and maintenance of the donation platform, monitoring the use of funds, and practical matters related to distributing the funds.

Joulupuu ry currently has three part-time employees, who support the local organizers and take care of the administration and management of national collections. The organization also supports local volunteer collectors by providing them with free package cards and offering them small financial support to cover the costs of organizing the collections (such as packaging materials, fuel costs, refreshments). Joulupuu ry also holds trainings for local volunteers to ensure responsible organization of the collection.

There are nearly 300 local eJoulupuu collections, and organizing, coordinating, and monitoring them is a big task. Managing the use of collection funds also comes with a great responsibility, and preventing misuse is crucial. This work is carried out by paid professionals, while volunteers focus on organizing local gift collections as voluntary work (with support from the organization). It would not be possible to carry out the eJoulupuu collection as a complete act of charity in a way that 100% of the funds raised would go to the donation recipients. The collection costs are also communicated at the time of donating.
