Fulfillment Fee + Donation to GlobalGiving
GlobalGiving works to keep fees as low as possible while providing great services and resources to our nonprofit partners. The platform 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, offer customer service and nonprofit support, and maintain and improve our online technology in order to keep you connecting with new donors. In addition to the platform fee, all organizations will be charged a 3% processing fee that will cover transactional charges such as credit card, PayPal, and check processing fees.

Donors will be invited to add an optional donation to GlobalGiving to their contribution. By adding a donation to GlobalGiving, donors are investing in nonprofits within the GlobalGiving network by supporting efforts to continue offering high-touch programs and services. Donations made to GlobalGiving will not further reduce either the platform or processing fees on these transactions.
