Transparent Fees



Last updated: 
July 19, 2020

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 contribute 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. Supporters can easily opt out of covering this fee by clicking the "Edit" button, but over 90% of supporters choose not to.

Not only has our commitment to transparency allowed supporters 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 supporters (not recommended) you can still do so via the Settings tab of any Campaign in your dashboard. You can also require that supports cover fees, which is most common for events.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
