YouCaring is Absolutely Free

No one has ever been charged to raise money online using YouCaring. We started offering free fundraising in October 2011. Since then, we have helped over 127,000 fundraisers. You can use YouCaring to raise $100, $25,000 or even $1,000,000 and never be charged a penny by YouCaring.  

How Does YouCaring Support Itself?

YouCaring relies on the generosity of the community to support our efforts in providing a free fundraising platform for those needing help with challenging life situations.  Donors who contribute to fundraisers on YouCaring have the option of providing a voluntary tip to support our operations and keep our fundraising campaigns free, easy and effective.  YouCaring is committed to helping as many people as possible and we are incredibly thankful to our donors who allow us to assist so many people every day.

Competitor Fees

Other fundraising websites say they are “free to try,” which usually means you can start a fundraiser, but the moment you receive donations it is no longer free. These websites typically charge 5-10% of all money raised, in addition to credit card processing fees. We have helped fundraisers raise over $160 million, with no website fees, saving them at least $8 million.

Credit Card Processing Fees

Running an online fundraiser requires a third-party credit card processor. We give you the option of working with PayPal or WePay. Both of these processors charge similar processing fees, typically 2.9% plus $.30 per transaction. Each accepts all major credit cards and even checks. YouCaring does not receive any of this money.  For more information, please see the PayPal and WePay fee tables.
