Givebutter is one of the only major fundraising platforms with a commitment to offering 100% fee transparency for both fundraisers and donors. This means that when people donate to campaigns on Givebutter, they see one hundred percent of the fees for that transaction. Donors can easily opt out of covering this fee by clicking the "Edit" button, but over 90% of donors choose not to.
Our commitment to transparency allows donors to know exactly where their money is going and enables fundraisers to keep over 99.5% of all funds raised on Givebutter. This also means that when fundraisers are ready to withdraw their funds, there will never be any surprises!
Note: If you'd like to hide fees from donors (not recommended) you can enable that option in the Settings tab of your campaign. If you hide fees from donors, the fees will be taken off the top of the donation.
See this feature in action by going through the donation flow on any of our demo campaigns, found here (under "Fundraisers"): https://demo.givebutter.com/dance-marathon
