Donations through the Network for Good giving system are to the Network for Good Donor Advised fund. Network for Good, a nonprofit, re-grants the donation funds to the donor's selected charity(ies), but there are costs associated with processing and distributing online donations. Even though our donation service is complex to build and operate, we try to pass along very little of its expense to the charities donors support. The 3%-5% additional grant to Network for Good helps cover the costs of processing transactions, providing customer support, disbursing funds to charities and maintaining our technology. Additionally, it furthers our mission of training and supporting nonprofits and making it easy to donate online to charity.
The chart below describes the different costs associated with donations across our different solutions. Regardless of how a donor makes a donation through our giving system, the full amount of the donation is tax deductible.
