Simply Giving Changes a few things.
Beginning in January, 2010, Simply Giving will begin to assess a transaction fee of 20 cents per transaction. While that may not seem like very much, we hope to minimize that by suggesting that all who use Simply Giving change weekly giving to monthly giving. For example, let’s say that your weekly giving is $50 for 52 weeks. The total is $2,600 for one year. However, the 20 cent transaction fee is for 52 transactions, which is $10.40. If, however, you change your giving to monthly, that would be $217 per month, and the transaction fee is only $2.40 for 12 transactions. In these hard times, we can use the $8 difference much more than the bank that sets the fee charge. Please talk to Herm Weyland if you need help to make that change.
