How much of each donation goes to charities?
When a ConnectGood is accepted by a recipient, 93 to 95% of the donation amount is forwarded on to the designated charity. 5-7% covers administrative charges and credit card processing fees. All of these fees and charges are paid to 3rd parties. Our goal is to maximize the donations to charities. ConnectGood only charges a subscription fee to users and a nominal amount to cover credit card fees. ConnectGood also ensures that the charities that recipients can choose from have a good track record and are reputable. This means most of the charitable donations are going to fund actual programs and effect real change. Less of the donation amount is used to cover bloated overhead and administrative fees.
