20 cents of every dollar (20%) raised by non-profit organizations goes towards fundraising expenses (U.S. national average). DVN streamlines fundraising to make this effort much more cost-efficient for the community overall. Only 3.5% of funds raised by credit card will go towards processing fees ($0.50 for ACH transactions and $0 for check payments). These funds are NOT retained by DVN – they are used to cover 3rd party payment processing fees and not cover DVN administrative costs.
Dasvandh Network is able to pass through 96.5% - 100% (depending on method of payment) of funds raised because of donations made to DVN by strategic supporters and through optional tips in the donation process.
