Questions & Answers

It’s important to understand that payment processing fees are different from platform fees.

A platform fee is the cost GoFundMe Charity applies to our world-class functionality and service. Processing fees are costs associated with third-party payment processors and are not set by GoFundMe Charity.

While GoFundMe Charity doesn’t charge a platform fee to charities using our Free plan, payment processing partners charge a standard processing fee (2.2% + $.30 per transaction). This allows for secure credit card processing, safe transfer of funds and accurate, automated receipting for tax purposes.

These payment processing fees are applied to the donation total. For example, if someone were to donate $100 through GoFundMe Charity, the payment processing fee would come to $2.50 (2.2% of the total plus $0.30).

With the Donor Covered Fees option (offered through the Flex plan), donors have the option to cover all fees, including processing fees, during donation. On average, 93% of donors choose to cover the fees. That means the majority of nonprofits that activate this feature end up close to – or achieving – cost-free fundraising. This option is available on our Flex plan.

Making our enterprise-grade fundraising platform free of subscription and platform fees is part of the GoFundMe commitment to empower organizations and make the best fundraising technology available to all charities, regardless of size, stage, or operating budget.

Contributions from generous donors allow us to keep GoFundMe Charity free for nonprofit organizations. Donors are able to leave a voluntary tip when they contribute to an organization on GoFundMe Charity, and these tips allow us to maintain our free platform, invest in building the most innovative fundraising technology, provide round-the-clock support and deliver world-class service (so you can focus on your mission).

Tipping is only available to charities who choose to use the Free plan.

No. Our plans are absolutely subscription-free, no matter which option you choose.

Switching plans is easy. You can change your plan at any time in your account settings by simply clicking the “Change plan” button and selecting your desired plan.

To edit your current Donor Covered Fees setting, click the “Edit” link next to “Donor Covered Fees ON/OFF,” make your selection, and click “Save.”

Since we have no contracts or subscriptions, you’re free to stop using GoFundMe Charity at any time. To learn more about removing your organization from GoFundMe Charity, visit the Help Center.
