What are the costs associated with placing a gift card order?

Last Updated: Apr 25, 2018 01:00PM EDT
Gift card pricing is based first on the value of the gift card(s) and also on whether the order is standard or custom.
GlobalGiving charges a standard 15% fulfillment fee on donation amounts. As a nonprofit, we use these funds to support our operations. If you want the face amount of each card to reach the project(s) chosen by your recipients, you can elect to pay this 15% as a direct donation to GlobalGiving. For example, if you want all of your recipient's $10 gift card to reach the recipient's chosen organization, you would pay $11.50 for a $10 gift card; $10 would go to the project(s) of your gift card recipient's choice and $1.50 would be a direct donation to GlobalGiving.
