    27. 27. How do I get started? 27
    28. 28. What happens when a donor makes a donation? • The organization’s administrator immediately receives an email notification which includes the donation amount and the donor’s contact information (if it is not an anonymous gift). • The organization’s administrator may access their organization’s donor report online at anytime. Report includes donor name, amount, date, donor address, email, designation, source and recurring gifts. • The donor immediately receives an email from Razoo/GiveMN which is their IRS receipt . While the email thanks the donor, it is a thank you from Razoo/GiveMN, not from the organization. We strongly encourage the organization to follow up with a thank you note shortly thereafter. • Donations are paid out the 10th of each month for the prior month’s donations. 28
    29. 29. What is the cost? • Enabled by our strong partnership with U.S. Bank, GiveMN will apply a flat, simple 4.9 percent on donations to cover transaction costs – one of the lowest rates available to most nonprofits and organizations. • There are no hidden or other required charges. No subscription fees. No setup costs. • We offer Minnesota nonprofits great features and make it clear how we work and how we can help. 29
