Why We Don’t Use GoFundMe

Few people realize that GoFundMe, and other similar fundraising sites, are for-profit organizations. They make their money by taking 5% of all donations processed on their sites. That’s great if you want a quick way to set up a fundraiser. However, as a web developer, I wanted to provide a way to raise funds without having to lose the 5% that could be helping women and projects in need.

The web server costs for this site are donated. I am committed to providing a fundraising platform for projects that impact the lives of women in Guatemala, particularly those affected by violence.
