Donate any amount and have complete control over how your donations are used. You choose which projects and individuals you would like to help. All donations are securely processed by Stripe.
Quickly and easily help people in the world's poorest countries. We only work with highly vetted, on-the-ground partners who truly understand the issues and needs. So you can donate with confidence, knowing that it will have a transformational impact.
We take you to the scene of your giving so you can see the difference you make and share in the joy you helped to create. Receiving a personalized thank you video from the people whose lives you touch will leave a lasting impact on you.
The majority of our projects fall under our 0% fee model! We want each dollar to have its biggest impact and we take 0% overhead from those donations.
Our credit card processor, Stripe, takes a 2.9% (+29c) processing fee. This saves us significant admin cost of receiving and processing payments - and allows you to give with ease.
Most of our Partners pay a small monthly subscription to help offset our operating costs and the hosting costs. (Many of our Partners have dedicated donors who cover this cost.) These are the projects that have the 0% model.
Some projects on our platform have a marketing fee that averages to 13.75%. This money is used for website maintenance, video hosting, improved features, marketing, project curation, partner development, handling service inquiries, and all our coaching.
While we would love to have 0% on everything, the reality is that charities need a budget to operate and grow. We hope that you see every donation on DonorSee as both an investment in those in need as well as an investment in the future of charity that we're working hard to build.
One of the best ways to support us is by signing up for monthly giving which provides us with predictable income for our high-impact projects. You are also welcome to leave a tip on any gift that helps us continue to build the future of charity.
Our CEO, Gret Glyer, spent his first 4 years running DonorSee without taking a salary. Before starting DonorSee, he spent 3 years living in Malawi serving people in destitute poverty. While there, he survived on $600/month while he built houses for orphans and widows, worked with the sick, and crowdfunded a girl's high school. We continue to embrace a strong sense of financial stewardship in everything we do.
DonorSee has never turned a profit and is committed to its mission to serve the global poor and providing maximum impact from every donation.
