6 Ways GiveGab Saves Nonprofits Money

Team GiveGab works very closely with fundraising professionals from nonprofits of all sizes, so we know first-hand that saving money for most nonprofits isn’t just important, it’s often critical.

Here are six ways fundraising on GiveGab saves nonprofits money!

1. Easy Technology Saves You Time

We all know that time is money, and GiveGab gives you an easy-to-use platform allowing you to create and launch a fundraising campaign in under ten minutes.



Once your campaign is launched, you can easily share it, and set up automated email receipts that include a thank you message, so your donor stewardship is already set into action!

2. A Donor-Centric Platform = More Gifts

We go into a lot more detail about how GiveGab provides a donor-friendly experience in the article, 12 Proven Techniques to Help Attract New Donors.

Some of the many GiveGab features that are donor-centric include:

  • Donation tiers or giving levels
  • Option for donors to cover fees (opposed to requiring it)
  • Simple and seamless donation form process
  • Automated thank you message with receipt!
  • These are just to name a few

3. Support is Readily Available

Although fundraising on GiveGab is quick and easy, if you ever have questions along the way, you don’t have to rely on a tech-savvy volunteer or hire someone to help you set things up because our knowledgeable staff of fundraising experts (a.k.a. our Customer Succes Champions) are readily available to help you through our live chat feature, #SuccessChat!

And with an average response time of under five minutes, any issue that arises will be resolved quickly and with a smile [chat bubble to your right].

4. High Return on Platform Investment

GiveGab users that are signed up for a subscription to one of our premium plans have lower per-transaction fees that make it easy to see a full return on their investment following a successful campaign.

5. Lower Credit Card Fees Through Stripe

As of March 16, 2018, because of the volume of fundraising happening through the GiveGab platform, our payment processor Stripe is able to offer a set rate of 2.2% + 30 cents per transaction on all credit card fees.  Prior to this, fees for American Express were much higher at 3.5% + 30 cents.

This means the thousands of nonprofits already fundraising on GiveGab are responsible for providing lower fees for everyone on GiveGab moving forward.  How awesome is that?!

6. Zero Platform Fees on #GivingTuesday

When subscribed to GiveGab plans Launch or Boost you can quickly create a beautiful #GivingTuesday campaign and collect donations without the GiveGab platform fee for the full 24 hours on #GivingTuesday (happening this year on November 27, 2018).
