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 fee for that transaction, which includes our platform fee and any applicable payment processing fees. Donors can easily opt out of covering this fee by clicking the "Edit" button, but over 90% of donors choose not to.
Not only has our commitment to transparency allowed donors to know exactly where their money is going, but it's also enabled 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) we can enable this. Please contact us to do so.
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
