No fee to create a fundraiser
There’s no fee to start or manage your fundraiser. However, to help us operate safely and securely, our payment processors deduct one small transaction fee per donation (2.9% + $0.30, which includes debit and credit charges). This is deducted automatically from donations; the person receiving funds will receive all funds raised minus these transaction fees.
What is a transaction fee?
The transaction fee covers the costs of credit and debit charges, safely delivering donations and helps us offer more ways to donate—through credit, debit, PayPal, Apple Pay or Google Pay (for most fundraisers). This is the only fee deducted on GoFundMe to cover all your fundraising needs.
Voluntary tipping by donors
Donors have the option to leave a voluntary tip for GoFundMe. By leaving a tip, you’re helping us to do more good in the world and your generosity helps us provide a safe and secure experience for you and others in our community.
Tipping is optional and the tip amount can be changed to 0. Instructions about how to edit the tip amount are here.
