What are ActBlue tips for?

We’re a nonprofit, and we can only keep our tools up and running with the support of small-dollar donors like you. We give you the option to leave a tip for us on your contributions so you can support our platform and fuel our work. 

Thousands of campaigns and organizations rely on our fundraising tools, which they use for no charge. We pass along a 3.95% processing fee on contributions to the groups using our platform. ActBlue does not make money off of donations. Completing a contribution involves costs related to processing your credit card. We’re legally required to pass along processing costs to the campaign so that we do not make in-kind contributions to them.
