GlobalGiving is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit, and the way we pay our bills—and help other nonprofits thrive—reflects it.
There is no cost for nonprofits to join our community, and you can rest assured that donations made through GlobalGiving are efficiently delivered to their intended destination. That being said, in order for us to achieve our mission and provide the best tools, training, and support to our amazing partners, we do retain a small percentage of every donation.
We pass along the 3% processing fee that third parties charge us at no markup to our nonprofit partners. From there, we retain a 5-12% nonprofit support fee. You can learn more about how these fees are determined in the chart below.
GlobalGiving works hard to keep costs low. A minimum of 85¢ of every $1 donated goes directly to our nonprofit partners. More importantly, for every $1 that goes to fees, we’ll raise, on average, an additional $2 for a partner through our marketing efforts, fundraising campaigns, corporate partnerships, and gift cards.
Here’s how our fee structure works:
Gift Aid is a tax incentive by the UK government designed to benefit UK registered charities. It allows charities to reclaim tax on a donation made by eligible UK taxpayers, which means that your donation is worth 25% more! As a registered UK charity, GlobalGiving processes all Gift Aid claims for our partners, no matter where your organization is registered.
