Free fundraising, forever

All features are free thanks to optional tips we receive from donors. If you'd prefer to disable tips, a small platform fee applies instead.

Thank you! Your submission has been received!
Oops! Something went wrong while submitting the form.
For every
$1,000 raised
$995 goes to
your mission.

Seriously! Because most donors cover fees and Givebutter is free to use, the average campaign keeps 99.5% of all funds raised. Smooth as butter.

This is the only bill
you'll see from us!

Frequently asked questions

Givebutter's all-in-one fundraising platform is completely free to use—forever! We do not charge subscriptions, hide any fees, or require contracts of any kind to use every feature with award-winning live support.

Instead, Givebutter is funded by giving donors the option to make a contribution (we call it a "tip") to the platform during the payment process. Tips are completely optional and can be turned on or off at any time by any account admin, for any campaign.

If you prefer to disable tips, a small platform fee of 1–5% applies instead based on the campaign type.

The only other Givebutter fee you will see is from our secure payment processor of 2.9% + 30¢ for all payment methods (reduced to 1.9% for ACH), which most donors cover.

Max Friedman
Co-founder, CEO

You can choose to hide, show, or require donors to cover payment processing fees in the donation flow. Over 95% of donors across all campaigns on Givebutter choose to cover the entire fee associated with their donation, leading to an average overall processing fee of just 0.5%.

In the rare event that a donor decides not to cover their fee, it is deducted from the full donation amount, so your organization never has to pay anything out of pocket.

Mark Rummel
VP of Customer Experience

Givebutter’s award-winning support, like our product, is always free. Our Customer Support team is ready to provide you with personalized support via live chat or email.

You can also explore our help center, watch a free demo, or even butter—join our Customer Success Team for daily Office Hours! These live product workshops are designed to help Givebutter users make the most of the platform’s features and take their campaigns to the next level.

Sunny Ellis
Customer Support

Givebutter has partnered with Stripe and PayPal to offer the widest selection of modern payment methods available, including all major credit/debit cards, ACH, donor-advised funds, PayPal, and popular digital wallets like Venmo, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. The best part? You don't need to sign up for any extra merchant accounts (like Venmo) to accept donations from these platforms.

Additionally, Givebutter offers free QR codes and text-to-donate tools for mobile giving, simplifies offline donations (cash, check), and supports in-person payments through the free Givebutter mobile app.

With Givebutter, you can easily view, manage, and import historical donation data all in one place. When you request a payout, funds from all payment methods are withdrawn together.

Claudia Segura
Customer Success

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, including:

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