We require an initial deposit upon your confirmation into the program (paid in one lump-sum) and then the final balance payment is due 2 months prior to your arrival (also paid in a lump-sum). Payments can be made by the volunteer or someone else. Please ensure that any payments are made using the appropriate payment form so that we have details on who is making the payment and for which volunteer. If you are collecting donations from friends, family or grants/funding YOU are responsible for ensuring that payment is made to CCF in ONE LUMP SUM. Please include a spreadsheet / database (in Microsoft Word / Excel) indicating the payment types, list of donors, etc. with your payment form to help us keep track of payments. Thank you.

CCF prefers payment by bank transfer to our Namibian bank account. In order to cover the processing fee our bank charges us, we are building in a fee of 1%. Please be advised that your bank will also charge you a fee for a foreign bank transfer. Please enquire about these charges in advance and please note that CCF does not have any influence on these charges. We can also accept payments by credit card (VISA and Mastercard) but a processing fee of 5% applies and additional bank charges on which CCF has no influence could be drawn from your account. It might be worth comparing transfer and credit card payment charges.
