Why do you ask donors to cover fundraising processing fees?

GiveMN isn’t only about raising millions of dollars for nonprofits and schools; we also want to promote healthy giving. First of all, by covering the fee, 100% of your intended donation will go directly to the organization you support, a win-win scenario! Secondly, covering the fee creates a healthy dynamic in which donors like you can partner with their favorite organizations to help cover some of the cost of doing business—because the reality is that it costs money to raise money.

Finally, Minnesota is a national leader in philanthropy and generosity, and we want to continue to lead by example in our charitable giving and organization support.

Since offering this feature in 2016, Minnesota's donors have been extra generous. Nearly 80% of donors cover the fee on behalf of their favorite organizations!
