Here's why a donation amount may not match the amount you receive in your deposit account. Credit card companies (via Stripe) charge fees. This amount is usually 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction. Unfortunately, these fees are not something 4giving can control. However, during the COVID-19 Pandemic, 4giving used money earned from tips to pay these fees on behalf of each nonprofit organization.

Let's use an example:

Happy Donor uses a credit card to give $100.00 to the Joyful Cause fundraiser.

Stripe securely processes the transaction and removes $3.20: ($2.90 + $0.30) for their 2.9% and $0.30/transaction fees.

The Joyful Cause fundraiser receives a net deposit of $96.80.

The accounting information for each donation can be found in the 'Donations' section of your Dashboard.
