1. What is the new model?
Our new fundraising approach allows your donors to contribute to your digital fundraising costs. Instead of financing everything yourself, we have introduced a cover fee module. Your donors have the possibility to cover all or part of the costs related to their transaction, in a completely optional and transparent way.
To learn more about the cover fees module, read our dedicated article: Cover Fees 101 – What your charity needs to know
Donor contributions allow you to optimize the costs associated with various service providers such as payment platforms. Just like the monthly subscription, the fees for certain transactions may not cost you anything, depending on the payment methods used, for example.

So it’s a real paradigm shift for us to show how committed we are to your organisation: we’re moving to a model where our success is tied to yours.
2. What are the benefits for your charity?
The most obvious benefit of cover fees is the decrease in your fundraising costs and the increase in your resources. But that’s not all…
→ Empower your donors: by offering them the opportunity to contribute to your fundraising costs, you give them more transparency on your expenses but also allow them to allocate 100% of their initial donation to your cause.
✅ Your donor makes a single transaction that includes their donation and their contribution amount to the online fundraising fee. This means that the entire amount is taken into account for the calculation of the tax deduction.
→ Switch to the latest payment platform: this new model operates with Stripe, so the acceptance rate is higher. As a result, your conversion rate will be too.
→ Prepare for future changes: As we know, digital fundraising is growing year after year. According to the 2021 Generosity Barometer, published by France Générosités, 25% of donations are already made online. You must therefore equip yourself with the best tools now to maximize your fundraising tomorrow.
