Donations are powered by Givebutter, the world’s first free end-to-end online fundraising platform. To keep the technology free for non-profit organizations like Desert View, Givebutter collects tips. These are 100% optional, and donors can edit or remove this from their donation during the checkout process. By keeping this feature "active," it allows DVLC to continue using the platform without any subscription fees.
A standard processing fee of 3% is applied to all online transactions on Givebutter. This fee is charged by the payment processor and allows donations to be securely transferred to DVLC, regardless of the payment method (credit card, Venmo, or PayPal). More than 95% of donors on Givebutter cover their transaction fees, so donations fully benefit the organization. Like tips, this is also optional and can be removed by donors at checkout.
