How much does GiveForward cost to use?
It is free to create and maintain a fundraiser, and there are no annual or monthly fees to use GiveForward’s services. GiveForward deducts a flat fee on each transaction, which covers credit card processing, all WePay fees, and GiveForward operating costs. Approximately 2.9% + $.30 goes to WePay, our online payment service provider. An additional 5% covers our overhead expenses such as our tech development teams. Just to give an idea of where GiveForward falls in the spectrum, other online fundraising sites can charge up to 10%, or have other hidden fees for processing the final payment to the beneficiary that are not included in their advertised fees.
