How much does it cost to create a Crowdfunding campaign?

 

CharityVillage does not hold or take any money from your campaign. The donations received will be deposited in the payment processor account you add to your campaign when creating it. The platform only accepts Stripe or PayPal as the payment processor, therefore if your organization does not have an existing account, you must create one.

 

There are 3 pricing models to choose from:

1. Free
This model is when your supporters take care of the fees. 

  • 0% platform fee - As a fundraiser, you don’t pay anything. To help us keep use of the platform for free, we ask donors for an optional tip.
  • No monthly fee - No setup, monthly, or annual fees
  • Payment processing fee - Industry standard third-party payment processor fees (typically 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction) or your negotiated nonprofit rate.

2. Standard (industry standard)
Best option for organizations who prefer to go with a standard path.

  • 5% platform fee - Industry-standard pricing model, when the platform fee is deducted from the contribution. Donors are not asked for a tip.

  • No monthly fee - No setup, monthly, or annual fees

  • Payment processing fee - Industry standard third-party payment processor fees (typically 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction) or your negotiated nonprofit rate.

3. Pro (customize your own pricing)
Best option for organizations who want to design custom pricing on their terms.

  • Flexible platform fee - The fee you pay is based on organization's choice: cover the platform fee or get it fully or partially recovered by your supporters.

  • No monthly fee -No setup, monthly, or annual fees

  • Payment processing fee - With Pro Model, you can add your payment processing fees to your full or partial fee recovery plan.
