Why is a fee added to my gift?
With RebelGive, our whole mission is to work with you, the Giver, to make sure your church always receives 100% of every gift. This is important because in the US alone, digital giving costs churches over $35 Million in fees every year. 😵
Unlike a number of other giving platforms, we don't skim off the top of any tithe or any offering that comes through our platform. Any fee you see will be sent directly to the processor for the transaction fee.
Credit (and debit) card companies and banks charge a small fee every time money is moved digitally. Up to this point, churches have had to front the cost, which eats into each and every gift, which can make online giving very expensive! Since we believe the church should receive everything that is given to them, we work with you to cover the fees 🤝
Because of this, we worked with our card processor (CardConnect) to offer the lowest transaction processing fees ever! If you give via credit card, there will only be an additional 1.9% added on top of your gift. But if you're concerned about that amount, you can connect your bank account. We cover the flat cost of $0.25 for churches with less than 1,000 attendees (America only - sorry Canadians!), no matter the size of the gift!
In fact, in the first 6 months, RebelGive saved churches in North America over $200,000. All this reclaimed money can now go towards expanding God's Kingdom, rather than to the pockets of card processors. We're thankful and excited about anyone who gives through a GivingFlow because we know it will be saving churches hundreds of thousands of dollars each year 😇
