GlobalGiving Reduces Fee to As Low As 5%

GlobalGiving is not just a platform. GlobalGiving is...GlobalGiving has never been just a crowdfunding platform. Sure, we provide a great website that helps nonprofits tell their stories and collect donations. But that’s just the beginning. As a nonprofit ourselves, we offer a host of services, including vetting, tools, training, one-on-one support, as well as access to corporate funding and new donors. Our ultimate aim is to help nonprofits gain access to the resources they need to thrive.

We’re a partner, not just a platform.

For 15 years, we’ve been building out a successful model that supports and rewards locally-led organizations that emphasize learning and effectiveness. We want to continue to grow by opening our community to even more community- and world- changers. And to prove that bottom-up development not only works, but is possible on a larger scale.

In order to support even more nonprofits of all sizes, we’re reducing our fees for most types of donations. Starting October 1, 2017, once an organization has met our initial fundraising threshold, GlobalGiving will retain just 5% of funds directed to US- and UK-based nonprofits, and 7% of funds for all other organizations. Donations will also still be subject to a 3% third party transaction processing fee, and certain types of donations which rely on expanded GlobalGiving staff and services or have been pre-negotiated are ineligible for the new fee.

Unlike other fundraising platforms, GlobalGiving drives funding back to nonprofits in the form of matching money, bonus prizes, marketing campaigns, and corporate partnerships. In 2016 alone, we drove nearly $10 million extra to our 3,000+ partners, 99% of which received a portion of that funding!

We’ll still provide all the same high quality services and support and, most importantly, we’ll continue to Listen, Act, Learn. Repeat as we elevate local voices and direct support to the most effective nonprofits around the world.
