FAQ quick answers to the most frequently asked questions
Can I enroll my nonprofit? Yes! We are currently accepting Nonprofit Partners for our upcoming fall 2018 second release. If you would like for your organization to be considered, please contact us.
How much does it cost to enroll my nonprofit? There is a small, one-time fee associated with developing your branded app, securing approval and publishing your app. A portion of that fee is waived for all clients that enter into a co-marketing agreement with CharitySprout. What type of branding can I have? Your branded app will include your logo, organization name, hero image carousel of your programs in action, customcolor scheme, and select custom language about your cause.
Will we raise much money? The beauty of spare change is that it adds up over time. Pennies add up to nickels, add up to dimes, quarters, dollars, etc. And soon, over the course of a year, a donor who didn’t think they had any money to contribute could be giving you $50, $100, $500, or even more. This type of giving program will attract new dollars not currently enjoyed by your organization, and increase giving from current donors. And over time, it could grow into a strong and increasing source of reliable income since we are on the leading edge of two critically important trends: the mobilization of commerce and the growth in giving from younger generations.
Are there any ongoing costs? There is a flat $1 a month donor maintenance fee (which is waived if there isn't a contribution any given month). Our competitors charge a percentage of the donation (generally between 5-10%). We have a problem with that. The cost to us if your donor contributes $5 or $500 are no different … so why should someone charge you more if a donor is more generous to you? They shouldn’t. If your donor makes one round-up gift of $5 one month, and then the next month is feeling more generous and makes an additional one-time gift of $25, we charge you the same flat fee. Our competitors will charge you more -- up to 80% more over the course of a year.
How does data integrate with my donor CRM? We provide customized data exports from our CRM solution to support your specific donor database needs. And we are currently working with the major fundraising database platforms to ensure seamless integration into their databases.
