Donations on Causes

Donation processing

Any U.S. based 501(c)3() or 501(c)(4) nonprofit registered with can fundraise on Causes.
*Sorry, we don't accept donations for nonprofits outside the United States.

All donations are processed by our processing partner, Stripe.

Causes and Stripe have negotiated a 4.0% charge for each donation made through Causes. If your organization has a pre negotiated fee with Stripe, these terms will remain. Causes receives $0 from contributions and takes no additional fee from transactions

Payment methods: 

You can donate on Causes $2 or more using any debit or credit card with a Visa, Mastercard or American Express logo. 

Donation security:
Donation security is provided by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), a recognized authentication and encryption software. SSL locks the site while you are giving us your credit card information and unlocks it only when you leave the secured area. Your credit card number is encrypted so it is unreadable to anyone outside the transaction process. This is the industry standard in security and we do everything we can to make sure we are at the cutting edge of security technology.

Tax deductions:
We cannot guarantee that every donation you give through Causes is a tax-deductible donation to the extent allowed by law. Make sure to save or print the confirmation email that Stripe sends to your inbox after you donate. You must check with the nonprofit organization to ensure that your donation is tax deductible. Your donation information will also be stored online in your donation history.
