This is a website where you can give to your favorite charity/charities and have all your donation records stored and accessible at any time. Our website is safe and secure; we meet the BBB Wise Giving Alliance standards for charity accountability. In fact, since inception more than 500,000 donors have contributed more than $400 million dollars using the Network for Good giving system!
Donors: For donations made to Network for Good--via www.networkforgood.org or DonateNow Lite--one-time donors are asked to make a minimum 5% tip to Network for Good. For recurring donations, a 4.75% grant amount can optionally be added or deducted. Either way, the full amount of the donation is tax deductible.*
Nonprofits: If you subscribe to our full DonateNow service, supporters who donate via your DonateNow page will incur a 3% rate instead of the aforementioned 4.75% for recurring donations or minimum 5% grant for one-time donations. Learn more here.
How does the money get to the charity?
Your contribution is made to Network for Good, a nonprofit, donor advised fund, which will distribute your donation to the nonprofit organization that you indicated. We work through VeriSign to get payments from your credit card, PayPal, and/or bank accounts. Network for Good mails a check directly to the charity, or if the charity provided information to us the donation is electronically transmitted through our secure servers to the charity's bank account. Donations are sent to charities on the 15th of each month.
*As required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Network for Good has exclusive legal control over the donation. In the rare event that a charity you have recommended does not satisfy Network for Good's criteria for receiving donations (i.e., it has been classified by the IRS as a disqualified supporting organization, it cannot or does not accept donations, is not recognized by the IRS as a public charity, or is not in good standing with federal and state regulators), Network for Good will select an alternate charity to receive your donation funds.
*During times of increased online giving in response to a disaster, Network for Good may decrease the donation processing grant displayed on our website and DonateNow Lite and remove the optional donation to Network for Good.
