Voluntary Tip

How Does It Work?

WhyDonate charges 0% platform fees. To host and improve the platform, WhyDonate asks the donor for a voluntary tip. This tip is optional and can therefore be set to €0. If no tip is given, WhyDonate still does not charge the platform costs to the organiser of the fundraising campaign. All the donated money is therefore always paid to the fundraiser.
