Overview

Organizations of all sizes can start fundraising in less than 5 minutes with Givebutter’s free, world-class tools. 

Givebutter lets you raise funds, host events and auctions, manage donor profiles and donation, and send messages all in one, centalized place.

DonorDrive is an online fundraising platform for “enterprise-level” nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) status that raise more than $500K online each year. 

With sleek fundraising features, this platform can do a lot for nonprofits. Still, DonorDrive does require a third-party integration for donor management. Givebutter’s free nonprofit CRM, on the other hand, is built-in to the platform and integrates seamless with 100+ other fundraising tools.

Pricing

Givebutter is free thanks to optional donor tips.

The fee charged by our secure payment processors is 2.9% + 30¢ except ACH, which offers a reduced rate of 1.9% + 30¢ per transaction. Donors can choose to cover these fees (which 95% do!).

If you'd prefer to disable tips, a platform fee applies instead: 

→ 1% for Donation Forms
→ 3% for Fundraising Pages
→ 5% for Events & Auctions

DonorDrive does not list any of its paid plans or processing fees online

DonorDrive pricing depends on your organization’s budget, needs, and which fundraising features you want access to. 

Interested high-volume nonprofits must fill out an intake form for more information.

There are so many things to like about Givebutter. The ease of which it has given our donors to give money to the school, the texting feature is fabulous for our younger tech-savvy doors and this platform is FREE!!! The customer support goes above and beyond on any issue or questions we may have as an organization and even helps us customize many of their features. Our strategic campaigns, such as Giving Day, has resulted in bringing in more money since we started using Givebutter. It truly has been a game-changer when it comes to raising money.
