There are three areas of fees associated with your online donation. First are the debit/credit card fees paid to the processing company. These fees are set by the processing company and are not within our control. Next are the marketing fees paid to the internet and application developers for providing our service on a truly global scale. These fees vary based on the service provided. Last are the platform fees paid to our website developer to develop, maintain, update, and innovate our website. All fees are paid to third-party companies; Make My Donation does not take a fee for any of its services. Credit card processing fees, as well as partner platform fees, apply. Our average grant to charity(ies) is approximately 90% of the original donation.
