Pure Charity charges a 5% processing fee to cover the cost of credit card fees (those are 3% to 3.5% alone), end of year billing, system maintenance, and various administrative tasks. You can add that percentage to your overall fundraising goal.
Why isn't it free?
- We want to be able to provide you with the very best tools we can to help raise funds.
- Credit Card fees...ugh.
- We are here to help and you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at any time & we'll be available to help with questions, agency transfers, etc.
- Other Crowd Funding platforms that say they are free...really aren't. Dig into the details and you'll see that the fees are collected somewhere from someone. If you want to compare a specific platform, let us know. We think we've built some of the very best tools there are to help raise money to bring your child home.
- We are working right now to improve everything we are doing. Technology keeps moving forward, adoption regulations change, IRS Laws...well...they aren't easy to keep track of, and we are staying on top of it. Give us a shout and we'll tell you about the latest improvements we are working on.
Hopefully that help give a little context, but we want to keep moving forward to support the families that will use Pure Charity in the future.
Happy to answer any other questions.
