Terms + Conditions

GlobalGiving has selected a group of Partner, Leader, and Superstar organizations with active due diligence through June 30, 2017 to receive a special, lower price on donations processed via GlobalGiving.org through August 31, 2017 at 11:59:59 pm EDT.

Projects from selected organizations will automatically participate in this offer unless organizations explicitly opt out by Monday, July 3, 2017 at 9:00:00 am EDT.

Participating organizations will be charged a lower fulfillment fee on retail transactions processed on GlobalGiving.org:

  • US- and UK-registered organizations will be charged a 5% platform fee, plus 3% processing costs.
  • Organizations registered outside the US or the UK will be charged a 7% platform fee plus 3% processing costs. 

GlobalGiving reserves the right to conclude this promotional offer with two business days notice to participating organizations. GlobalGiving also reserves the right to extend this promotional, lower price with three business day notice during which organizations will have an opportunity to opt out of the extension.

Organizational Eligibility
Participating organizations must have raised at least $5,001 on GlobalGiving, maintain Partner, Leader, or Superstar status, and have active due diligence through June 30, 2017. 

Donation Eligibility
All new donations made on GlobalGiving.org by credit card, PayPal, and Apple Pay are eligible for the promotional, lower price — with the exception of those related to corporate partnerships, gift card redemptions, recurring donations, and third-party processors (e.g. text-to-give, APIs).

Checks and wire transfers received by GlobalGiving by August 31, 2017 are also eligible to receive promotional pricing, with the noted exceptions above.

Whitelabel and other means not specified above are also ineligible for this promotional pricing offer.

Tax Efficient Giving
GlobalGiving is a registered nonprofit charity in the United States (US), England, and Wales.

Donations made by eligible donors in the US can be claimed as tax-deductible contributions on US tax returns.

Donations made by eligible donors in the United Kingdom (UK) can claim Gift Aid – an extra 25% added to eligible donations by the UK Government – when they donate in Great British Pounds.

Fulfillment Fee + Tip
GlobalGiving works to keep fees as low as possible while providing great services and resources to our nonprofit partners. The promotional pricing fee (5% for US- and UK-registered organizations and 7% for organizations registered outside the US or UK) covers the costs we incur to promote organizations and projects, provide them with fundraising training and tools, and maintain and improve our online technology in order to keep you connecting with new donors. In addition to the promotional pricing fee, all organizations will be charged a 3% processing fee that will cover transactional charges such as credit card and wire transfer fees.

During the promotional pricing period, donors will be asked to add a tip to their contribution rather than an add-on donation to cover the cost of the fee. By adding a tip (a donation to GlobalGiving), donors are investing in nonprofits within the GlobalGiving network by supporting efforts to continue offering high-touch programs and services.

Unlike the normal add-on donation, which covers some or all of the normal 15% fee, tips made to GlobalGiving will not further reduce the promotional fee on these transactions.
