SimplyGiving is a common platform that NGOs and social causes use to raise funds for their campaigns. It’s a free platform to register and use.

However, SimplyGiving charges 5% on donations collected by your campaign. This excludes any tax or processing fees charged by your Payment Provider.

They also have a feature called DonorPays, a feature that lets your donors pay the service fees on your behalf. This way they wouldn’t deduct the service fees from the funds you’ve raised.
