Maximizing the DonationPosted on: October 17, 2017
We’ve been keeping track and you all have some amazing supporters!!!
Organizations that manage fundraising events using AttendEasy and FundEasy now have the ability to allow supporters to cover their own transaction fees since we’ve switched payment processors. The response has been phenomenal!
On average, an astounding 64% of supporters opt to cover their own transaction fees. When they make the choice to cover their own fees, the organization receives 100% of the revenue. This means more money goes directly to the organization.
That $50 donation is now actually $50, not $47.50 ($50 minus $2.50 for transaction fees).
This option allows your supporters to give the maximum amount for a cause they believe in—your mission! This is their way of being a part of your organization and sharing their heart for your ministry.
Be certain to thank your supporters for taking that extra step to maximize their donation. I know your organization appreciates it, be certain they know too!
Have a great day!
P.S. Did you know that you can track exactly how many supporters are opting to cover the transaction costs in the Ministry Sync Beta site? In the Event Dashboard, simply mouse over the question mark next to the “Covered Fees” and see for yourself! (Don’t forget to thank your supporters for taking that extra step!)
