The funds are immediately transferred to the Friends of Club Med Corporate Foundation? You will then receive a notification of the transfer.
Will I be asked for additional information? If yes, who is the information sent to?
You may receive a request for additional information of a personal nature when the unit amount of your contribution reaches €1000, or when the sum of your contributions exceeds €2500 for one month.

We are required to request this information as part of the rules governing the fight against money laundering and fraud. This information is sent to the payment institution and will not, under any circumstances, be sent to the Friends of Club Med Corporate Foundation.
