Donorbox is no longer free to nonprofit organizations that raise less than $1,000 per month. Donorbox charges a 1.5% platform fee on all transactions, regardless of how much is processed, as well as a monthly fee for a number of available add-ons that are included with Givebutter for free. These fees are in addition to Stripe and PayPal processing fees of 2.2% – 2.9% per transaction (or 0.8% for ACH, capped at $5). Donors are able to cover both processing and platform fees. All in, Donorbox charges between 0.8-4.4% + .30¢ per transaction for fundraising pages.
