Third-party vendors charge credit card and electronic check processing fees when donors make online gifts to to nonprofit organizations. Two percent of each donation helps to cover these fees and ensures the program’s long-term sustainability. The two percent third-party processing fee is one of the lowest in the country and the most cost effective way to fundraise online. We are happy we can make this program available to Colorado nonprofits without any set-up charges or monthly maintenance fees.
