G1VE Fee FAQ
Here is additional information on how G1VE transactions work. Please contact us at hello@G1VE.org if you have any questions. We’d love to hear from you!
As a G1VE User, you choose to donate a percentage of your monthly revenue each month to the Nonprofits you’ve selected. Participating Businesses authorize G1VE to access portions of their data in their QuickBooks Online environment (e.g., data such as the Monthly Revenue Amount, etc.), which is used to calculate their donation amount on a monthly basis. This is the “Monthly Donation Amount”. The Monthly Donation Amount is then collected via the payment information (i.e., credit/debit card, ACH) provided in the User Account.
Since your revenue will likely vary each month, your Monthly Donation Amount will vary each month as well. A minimum Monthly Donation Amount of $25.00 will be collected each month (total, not per Nonprofit) unless you choose to skip your donation for that month.
- Calculation Timing: On the 15th of each month, G1VE will calculate your Monthly Donation Amount based on your revenue for the previous month (from the 1st of the prior month through the last day of that same month), multiplied by your selected Pledge Percent (e.g., 1.0 %, 0.5%, 1.5%, etc.). You may modify your Pledge Percent at any time by updating your Pledge Percent in your User Account.
- Collection Timing: On the 17th of each month, G1VE will charge the your selected payment method (i.e., credit/debit card, ACH) in your User Account for the Monthly Donation Amount.
- Notification: G1VE will notify you each month of your Monthly Donation Amount, which will be processed within approximately 2 business days of the notice. G1VE will also notify you after your Monthly Donation Amount has been collected. You may opt-out of receiving either of these notifications in your User Account.
- Processing Fee: From your Monthly Donation Amount, G1VE’s payment processor will deduct the credit card processing fees, equal to 2.9% + $0.30 on each transaction.
- G1VE Fee: G1VE will then deduct its Service Fee, equal to 3.0% ($9.99 minimum) of the Monthly Donation Amount.
G1VE is a recurring monthly service, but there is no commitment term (i.e., month-to-month) so you can cancel at any time.
