What are the fees associated with my donation?
Our fees vary between 3.75-5.5%. The fee for a transaction depends on two things : the type of account the charity you are donating to has with CanadaHelps, and the CanadaHelps tool that the charity is using to process your donation. Just 1.8% of your donation (included in the fees mentioned previously) goes to CanadaHelps to enable us to continue to build new and innovative online fundraising tools for charities at the best non-commercial rates. The remainder of the fee goes to cover costs we incur for processing these donations.
The full list of our tools and fees can be found here.
