On each donation processed through CanadaHelps, a 3.9% transaction fee is assessed. This amount is deducted before the donation is sent to the charity. Of the 3.9% transaction fee, credit card and banking fees absorb 2.2% and only 1.7% helps CanadaHelps cover all of the following costs: secure online donation processing, security standards compliance, automatic e-receipting, technical support to donors and charities, CanadaHelps staff, as well as other services.Our main goal is to provide Canadian charities with cost-effective online fundraising solutions. This is why CanadaHelps has always and will continue to operate on a cost-recovery basis. Our transaction costs represent the recovery of the true expenses associated with operating our online donation system.
