Do I have to reach my goal to withdraw funds?

Nope! We think it’s awesome that you were dreaming big and set a high goal! Even if you don’t raise 100% of that goal, you can still withdraw funds as often as you’d like at any point in the campaign, so you can get out there and make an impact.

How do payouts work?

We know how important it is for you to get the funds you raise quickly and securely, which is why we don't impose any limits or fees on payouts, and provide several options for you to do so:

  • Direct deposit via bank account (2-3 business days)
  • Direct deposit via debit card (2-3 business days)
  • Send to beneficiary (beta - contact us)
  • Automated deposits (available to verified nonprofits)

How is the average fee only 0.5% on Givebutter?!?

Our 0.5% average fee is made possible by the fact that over 95% of donors across all campaigns on Givebutter have chosen to cover the entire fee associated with their donation. In the rare event that a donor decides not to cover their fee, it is deducted from the full donation amount. Your organization then receives the remainder without actually paying anything out of pocket.

How do we get Venmo donations if we don’t have Venmo?

Givebutter is the first platform to allow your donors to pay for their donations using Venmo. Venmo is another built-in payment method option for your donor’s convenience, and there’s no set-up or Venmo account required on your side! Funds from ALL payment methods (credit card, Venmo, debit card, PayPal, etc.) are simply transferred into your account whenever you request a payout.
