Discounted Stripe Credit Card Processing Fees for Non Profits

Discounted stripe processing fees

Don't miss out: Stripe, our payment processor, is offering our registered 501c3 non profits a beta program with discounted credit card processing fees (discounted rates are also available for other countries... be in touch for more info).

Stripe fee structure

Stripe's standard fees are 2.9% + $0.30 per donation. Under this beta program, US registered Non Profits can apply for the following rate structure:

  • 2.2% + $0.30 per non-American Express transaction
  • 3.5% flat per American Express transaction

Applying for discounted Stripe fees

After registering your cause with Root Funding, simply email the following documentation to Stripe at with a request for the preferential non profit pricing:

  1. EIN (employer identification number)
  2. A letter stating your 501c3 status (can be an IRS letter)
  3. Email address for your Stripe Account

Stripe applies this pricing once a week, so be patient if you don't hear back right away.
