Upgrades

Do my donations support a level upgrade?

If you are a member of The Scarf Circle, all your donations will be taken into account towards your future upgrade, including monthly and one-time donations. In the future, donations made through the Scout Donation Platform to projects that go on to successfully raise their funding goal will also be counted.

 

When will upgrades take place?

All levels will be assigned on 1 January each year and will remain valid until 31 December.

You will be instantly upgraded if your donation is sufficient to change membership levels, and your membership will then be valid until 31 December of of next year.

You will have more than 12 months to maintain your level or upgrade again.

Do my BP-Coins support a level upgrade?

The Scarf Circle recognizes you for the time you invest in helping us grow and activate our community of donors, giving you BP-Coins every time you take an action.

Remember that your BP-Coins can help towards your next level upgrade if you haven't quite donated enough. For example: you have donated $280 in 2018, so you have achieved the Silver Level, and are just $20 short of reaching the Gold Level. If you have sufficient BP-Coins, you will reach that Gold Level by 31 December.

After an upgrade, will I lose any remaining BP-Coins?

No! You will keep the remaining BP-Coins. 

Can I be downgraded as well?

Yes! If the accumulative donations you made during the year or the BP-Coins you collected were not sufficient to maintain your level, you will be downgraded to the level below for the year to come.
