Donation totals increased by 47%
Average donation amount increased by 72%
Our favorite highlight: an amazing 92% of donors chose to cover donation processing fees allowing us to pass through 99.4% to charity.
Here’s a glimpse of our nonprofits’ impact on #GivingTuesday 2016.
Although #GivingTuesday is over, our work is not done yet! Engage past donors and turn new donors into long-term supporters by maintaining communication and asking them to give again before the year ends. Learn more about how JustGive can help.
Increase online giving, support your mission and increase donor outreach with our free, self-service donation services.
Through your free nonprofit account at www.justgive.org/nonprofits, you have immediate access to a Donate Now button, a mobile-optimized customizable donation page, secure donation processing, and a simple online experience for your donors.
What makes JustGive’s Donate Now button different?
We provide a cost-effective way to collect online donations that includes free sign up, no monthly or annual fees and a low 4.5% processing fee. Since JustGive waives the $0.35 flat charge for each donation made from your Donate Now button, you automatically save when donors give through the button.
What are the key features of the Donate Now button and how can my organization benefit from it?
Branding and personalized messaging – Add your logo and personal message on your page, giving your supporters a smooth user experience as they transition from your website.
Support for monthly recurring donations – Make it easy for donors to increase their impact with monthly giving while only providing their payment information once.
Custom donation amounts and program impact statements – Connect donors to your organization’s needs by providing custom donation amounts and program impact statements on your donation page. In our 15+ years of online giving, we’ve found this is key to securing funding.
Donor paid fees – Let your donors cover the processing fees and receive 100% of their intended donations. When this option is given, over 80% of donors opt to cover the fees.
