A voluntary contribution is an additional amount you can choose to give to support Zeffy. This is our only source of revenue and allows us to cover all of the fees for the 10,000+ nonprofits that fundraise with Zeffy.
If the nonprofit you're donating to uses Zeffy's platform, you’ll be asked if you’d like to give an additional contribution and the end of your transaction.
Not everyone gives every time, and that's okay. Our voluntary contribution model is just that: voluntary. If you choose not to leave an additional contribution, your nonprofit still gets 100% of your donation.

(The fees Dear Future, Inc saved were calculated with a 5% average fee—platform and credit card transaction fees combined.)Read more >
