If I choose to cover the fees on my donation, how is that calculated?

JustGive offers donors the option to cover the 4.5% processing fee and $.35 flat fee, which is the deducted from the donation before it is sent to the charity.

If you wish to cover the fees for your donation, note that fees are calculated based on the total amount charged to your credit card, not the donation amount.

For example, if you want to donate $100 to an organization, the calculation works like this:

$100 + $.35* = $100.35
$100.35 x .955 [1-.045*] = $105.07

*For each donation, there is a 4.5% service fee and a $.35 flat fee

Total charge to your credit card: $105.07
Total disbursed to the charity: $100.00

If you make the donation directly from a nonprofit's website (e.g. through their custom JustGive donate button), the $.35 flat fee is waived on the donation. In that instance, the calculation works like this:

$100 x .955 [1-.045] = $104.71

Total charged to your credit card: $104.71
Total disbursed to the charity: $100.00
