No. Staying in touch with an encouraging post or 'Thinking of You' button click is absolutely free. The Give a Meal tool lets you pick days to deliver or order meals. Through Wishlists, communities can purchase useful items directly from Amazon or Target with no extra fees.
What about fundraising and fees?
Approximately 2.9% + $.30 goes to our online payment service provider. An additional 5% covers our overhead expenses such as our tech development teams. On average, 95% of all donors choose to cover these fees along with their donation to ensure you receive 100% of all funds raised. Your fundraising goal doesn’t affect payments - whether it’s one dollar or thousands, you always keep what you raise.
What about security?
GiveForward uses the latest encryption technology to ensure privacy and security. We NEVER give out your information or sell it to third parties.
GiveForward is the first place to turn when you or someone you
love is facing a challenge. It’s the central rallying place for
giving and receiving meaningful support. From sending a simple
“Thinking of You” to raising money for out-of-pocket expenses,
GiveForward empowers anyone to build a community and take action
when it counts.
