Why is there an optional payment to YouCaring?

Unlike other fundraising websites, every dollar you give goes directly to the fundraiser, minus the unavoidable payment processor fees. YouCaring has always been free and does not charge any website fees. This means we rely on optional gifts from you and others to keep the website running.

YouCaring staff works hard to ensure every dollar you give is used efficiently. YouCaring has helped thousands of people raise millions of dollars for life-changing causes including medical expenses, adoptions, tuition, memorial expenses and mission trips.

Your contribution enables us to:
  • Offer a free service to the people who need it the most.
  • Build and maintain the technical infrastructure of the website.
  • Answer hundreds of customer support emails every day.
  • Help hundreds of people each day with their donations and fundraising campaigns.
  • Provide fundraising coaches who help fundraiser organizers maximize their efforts.

Without all of you, we would not be able to help hundreds of people every day.
