Fees to Barnraisings are 9 percent. Remember though that the credit card company (WePay) adds another 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction. This is sometimes paid for by the Beneficiary, and sometimes by the customer. For an ‘all or nothing’ campaign, fees are only taken if the project is successful. For a ‘flexible’ campaign where the nonprofit sponsor receives whatever money is raised by the end of the campaign, all fees will apply. Unless explicitly noted on an individual project, all donations are fully tax deductible.
When a project is fully funded and the aggregate amount requested is paid to the nonprofit Beneficiary, a fee is paid by the nonprofit so we don’t go out of business. We try to keep our pricing as low as possible so your donation can have the greatest possible impact. The fee cover Barnraisings’s costs associated with developing, maintaining and hosting the site, plus other value-added services so we can give you one of the best, most innovative fundraising platform in the country. The reason we charge the nonprofit is to make your donation 100% tax deductible. Compared to traditional ways of fundraising like direct mail or charity dinners, Barnraisings is an inexpensive and efficient way to raise additional money for nonprofits.
