About our fees

We don't make a profit on your donations.

We don't make a profit on your donations.

All donations made through GivenGain are managed by the GivenGain Foundation, a Swiss non-profit organisation.

The GivenGain Foundation collects a 5% admin fee and a transaction fee to cover the costs from banks and credit card companies to get your donations to the charity.

The 5% admin fee stays with the GivenGain Foundation to support our mission. The fees help us build new tools and features to make giving better for everyone.

Transfer fees reflect the cost to the GivenGain Foundation of sending donation amounts through the banking system to charities' bank accounts. GivenGain collects all transaction fees, charge-backs, refunds and other costs incurred in this way by subtracting their total amount from the funds we receive from donors for payment to charities.
