The only 100% free fundraising platform for nonprofits.

Zeffy is free for nonprofits thanks to donors like you.

With Zeffy, nonprofits keep every penny you give. And that can really add up.

Last year,
$102 billion
was donated online to small and medium sized nonprofits.
of all donations go to covering credit card and transaction fees.
This adds up to around
$3 billion
in lost donations every year.
That $3 billion could do a lot of good. Like, feed
1.4 million
children for an entire year.

How do we do it?

Zeffy relies entirely on voluntary contributions from donors like you.

What is a voluntary contribution?

A voluntary contribution is an additional amount you can choose to give to support Zeffy. This is our only source of revenue and allows us to cover all of the fees for the 25,000+ nonprofits that fundraise with Zeffy.

How does it work?

If the nonprofit you're donating to uses Zeffy's platform, you’ll be asked if you’d like to give an additional contribution at the end of your transaction.

Collectively, we keep Zeffy free.

Not everyone gives every time, and that's okay. Our voluntary contribution model is just that: voluntary. If you choose not to leave an additional contribution, your nonprofit still gets 100% of your donation.
