We amplify every donation
GlobalGiving is a nonprofit. Our community is free to join, and we don’t charge an application fee or subscription fee. Instead, we retain a 5-12% nonprofit support fee on donations, plus a 3% transaction processing fee. GlobalGiving works hard to keep costs low. For every $1 that you contribute to the community in fees, we’ll raise, on average, an additional $2 for you through our marketing efforts, fundraising campaigns, corporate partnerships, and gift cards.
