Featured Nonprofit FAQ
Are There Service Fees for Nonprofits?
Here at JustGive, we offer services that help you fundraise and reach more donors, including the ability to process online donations. One question we’re often asked is if there are fees associated with our services.
Is there a cost for our nonprofit organization to have a JustGive account or to use JustGive’s donation services?
There is no set up or monthly fee for nonprofits to use JustGive. It’s free for any 501(c)(3) organization to sign up for an account on JustGive.
Once you have a nonprofit account, you can also create a custom donation page for your organization, and place donation buttons and links on your website to collect online donations. We handle all the processing of those donations and mail your organization a monthly check for donations received.
When a donor makes a donation to your nonprofit through your JustGive donation page, button or link, we deduct a 4.5% processing fee to cover transaction costs and credit card fees. This fee is deducted from the donation before we send payment to you. (JustGive doesn’t bill you at any time.)
Donors have the option at checkout to cover the processing fee, which allows 100% of the donation to go to your organization.
For donations made directly through the JustGive site (www.justgive.org), there is an additional flat charge of $.35 deducted per donation.
But for nonprofits using a JustGive Donation Page or custom Donate Now button or link, we waive the $.35 flat charge.
