    • Donations made via check

    • Text-to-give donations
    • Donations made on globalgiving.co.uk
    • Donations made on any other GlobalGiving corporate or organizational giving sites

  • All donations are final. GlobalGiving cannot change the time, date, or status of a

Tax Efficient Giving & Fulfillment Fee

  • GlobalGiving.org is a registered nonprofit in the United States. Donations made on GlobalGiving.org can only be claimed as tax deductible contributions on United States tax returns.
  • Fulfillment fee for donations: GlobalGiving charges a 15% fulfillment fee on donations but works to keep the fees you pay as low as possible while providing you great services and resources. The fulfilment fee only applies to the initial donation during #GivingTuesday and does not apply to matching funds. The fee covers all transaction charges such as credit card fees, as well as helps to cover the costs incurred by GlobalGiving.org to promote organizations and projects, provide nonprofit partners with fundraising training and tools, and maintain and improve our online technology in order to keep you connecting with new donors. With our add-on option, we also offer the donor the opportunity to make an additional donation to cover the fee.
