Meet Donation Spring

Impact Upgrade's mission is to simplify nonprofit operations. Although simple is hard, we're obsessed with getting you back to your mission and expanding your reach. Donation Spring is no exception.

Organizations can spend tens of thousands of dollars to build custom, professional donation forms. Our fundraising platform was born out of our consulting services, using the same approaches, technology, and security that we provide our partners.

Embed Donation Spring directly into your existing website! Rather than sending visitors to external platforms, Donation Spring keeps donors on your website longer, resulting in a deeper experience and increased funding. Donation Spring can also be embedded using a button and popup. Click Try Me, below, to see this in action!

Donation Spring:

With Donation Spring, there are no hidden fees, so you never have to worry about paying extra to set up or maintain your fundraising project.

appr. 2.2% + $0.30

When you tell (our payment processor) that you're a 501(c)3 nonprofit, you'll pay just 2.2% + $0.30 (a little higher for AMEX) for each donation you receive.

Total Cost:
Low or FREE

Donors are given the option to cover your processing costs, and most say "Yes!" But when they choose not to, you'll pay one of the lowest fees in the industry.

How can this be free?
Donors are given the option to add an extra 5% to their gift. And most choose to do so! 3% goes directly to you to cover the Stripe processing fee, while 2% is retained by Donation Spring to help us keep it free forever.

Great! You've already crossed the first hurdle. But, we know that fundraising is always most successful when brands and organizations tell their stories in powerful ways. Donation Spring's unique platform not only allows that to happen, but our technical experts are here for you every step of the way -- to make sure that your mission is seen, heard and supported.
One super important thing to note: our goal is to increase your donations. If you purely compare the costs of standard, general "donate now" buttons, you're absolutely correct. However, our emphasis on targeted giving, crowdfunding projects, events, and story-telling, dramatically increasing your fundraising capabilities. So although there might be a nominal monthly fee, you more than make up for that through increased donations that you might otherwise be missing!
Payment processors/gateways purely facilitate the collection of payments or donations on websites. Donation Spring takes that several steps further, providing a way to present funds, crowdfunding projects, and events (with a dashboard to control it all). That is then hooked into a payment processor (Stripe). The processor is only part of the step -- organizations still need to build something on top of it to actually use it. And that's what we take care of!
Honestly, we're finding that it actually happens quite a bit. Historically, Donation Spring has seen over 50% of donors end up covering that fee. But with recent changes to the platform, that rate has jumped to 60-80%. And we've seen that same rate with our consulting clients! This day and age, most folks are used to the % fee concept, especially after the pervasiveness of Paypal, selling things on eBay, etc. They understand that online transactions always costs the recipient.
Want the shocking truth? Baby Boomers actually spend more time online than any other age demographic. And more than half of the nation's newest donors say they are ready and waiting to support a nonprofit through monthly, online giving. Online giving is growing every year -- 8 times higher than other traditional fundraising methods, and Donation Spring is one of the only platforms available that allows you to raise money without the addition of outrageous fees or complicated management systems.
Over 135! If Stripe supports it, we support it. Check out their list of supported currencies. As long as yours is included, we'd love to serve you!
Absolutely! The only difference is a slight increase in cost: Stripe charges a 2.9% fee for standard accounts, instead of the 2.2% nonprofit rate. But again, many donors elect to cover that for you!
That's the beauty of Donation Spring: It was created to save time and resources. Some of our partner organizations have reported an 85% increase in donations. And better yet, those donors have come back year after year -- three times more often than offline donors.
