Nonprofits typically spend 15-30% of each dollar for fundraising (to hire personnel, contact donors, send mailers, plan fundraisers, etc). Goodworld provides a technology service that is one of the most efficient ways for nonprofits to receive donations while also providing a truly delightful and rewarding giving experience for the donors

The two reasons for costs are:

  1. Card processing merchants and other transaction services that involve applicable fees.

  2. Fundraising fees that we use to provide the service, pay our staff, and keep the lights on.
