When starting a campaign on GiveSendGo, selecting an initial attainable goal amount is crucial. Here are some tips and considerations:

  1. Set an Attainable Goal:

    • Choose an initial goal that is realistic and attainable. This can motivate donors and help build momentum for your campaign.

    • As you reach milestones, you can increase your goal to keep the campaign progressing.

  2. Understand Transaction Fees:

    • US Recipients: A transaction fee of 2.7% + $0.30 per donation is applied.

    • Non-US Recipients: A transaction fee of 3.5% + $0.30 per donation is applied.

    • Currency Exchange Fees: Additional fees may be incurred by the payment processor for currency exchange.

    • These fees are deducted from the total donation amount to ensure secure payment processing.

  3. Factor in Fees:

    • When setting your goal, remember to account for these transaction fees. This ensures you have a clear understanding of the net amount you will receive after fees are deducted.

By considering these factors, you can set a goal that is both realistic and aligns with the financial needs of your campaign.
