What are the fees associated with GoFundMe Charity?
The American Red Cross has a contract with GoFundMe Charity that allows us to receive very minimal fees associated with each donation. The Red Cross is contracted for a 2.5% platform fee plus a credit card fee of 2.2% + $0.30 per transaction. All donors are given the option to increase their donation to cover the transaction fees. On average, 93% of donors choose to cover the fees.
How does my chapter get the money?
Each Region has their own account, all campaigns under your Regional account will automatically credit the funds directly to your Regional Headquarters Chapter. The donations will come in monthly under the donor’s name and you can find these funds in the monthly report. If you included a GoFundMe Charity Event Source Code then the funds will go directly to your event. The gift comment will show that the gift came from GoFundMe Charity.
How does my donor receive a tax receipt?
The donor will be emailed a tax receipt directly from our Gift Processing Team.
How do I apply Fundraiser and/or Salesforce Credit?
The donors will be automatically hard credited in Salesforce the month after the gift is posted as long as the donor already has a record in Salesforce.
