Overview

  1. The Platform is an online fundraising facility. GoFundraise acts as agent of the Not-For-Profit Organisations (NFPs) and other users of the Platform facilities (Other Clients) (Other Clients and NFPs together and each a Beneficiary) with limited authority adequate to facilitate the collection, accounting and payment of funds raised. The GoFundraise agency is limited to the delivery of online services and consequential accounting. Beneficiaries and Users are given access to functionality that enables them to create fundraising campaigns, build web pages and contact their networks. All such actions are the actions of the relevant Beneficiary or User. As a general proposition, GoFundraise accepts no liability whatsoever for the actions of Beneficiaries or Users on the Platform.
  2. Every Not-For-Profit Organisation (NFP) listed on this Website has a contract with GoFundraise authorising Us to collect donations on its behalf, and we take reasonable steps to substantiate the Not-For-Profit status of NFP’s during the registration and contracting process.
  3. Despite clause 6, GoFundraise accepts no liability for ensuring that any Beneficiary applies the proceeds received from a donation in any particular way. If a User is dissatisfied with a Beneficiary's use of any donation the User makes through the Platform, the User should contact that Beneficiary directly.

GoFundraise fees

  1. Standard arrangement
    GoFundraise offers NFPs flexible fee options. Under the standard fee arrangement, GoFundraise charges a small service fee of between 0.49% - 6% (depending on the plan of the Beneficiary and where donation is facilitated) for its services. The fee is deducted from gross donations collected on behalf of the Beneficiary.. Direct donations to a Charity's fundraising portal (located at www.gofundraise.com.au/beneficiaries/search) are charged at the low administration fee of 0.49% service fee + GST and processing cost. Regular giving payments are charged at 1.95% Service Fee + GST to the Beneficiary plus card transaction fees. Other transactions are charged at the rate based on their plan.

    Donor Pays Option
    Beneficiaries may, at their option, choose one of GoFundraise’s Donor Pay Option arrangements for recovery of the fees required for the Platform to continue to provide its services. If the Beneficiary chooses these Options, then the donor is asked to tip to GoFundraise a sum of their choosing or a percentage uplift to the beneficiary to off-set the Platform Fee or to match the fees charged under the standard arrangement.
  2. GoFundraise also recovers credit card processing fees from the gross donations. These are currently at the market rate of 1.1% (inc gst) + $0.20 (inc gst) per transaction for Visa & Master Card, and 1.98% (inc gst) for American Express and 2.1% for Paypal (GST exempt). These fees are subject to change without notice. Transactions to multiple organisations in a transaction may incur an additional $0.20 fee per beneficiary.
  3. If GoFundraise provides services additional to the collection of donations through the Platform at the request of a Beneficiary, then fees for those specific services apply.
