Do you charge a fee for contributions?
We want as many campaigns and organizations on the left to be able to use our grassroots fundraising tools as possible, which is why there is no cost for groups to use our tools (we’re a nonprofit!). 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.
As a nonprofit, we use tips from donors to pay our bills. You can add an optional tip for us on the contribution form when you enter your credit card information.
