Donorbox Cares: Donorbox Reduces Platform Fee for Nonprofits Directly Aiding in Covid-19 Pandemic

San Francisco, CA – 27 March, 2020 – Donorbox, the powerful donation software for nonprofit organizations, announced reducing their platform fee from 1.5% to 0.5% in an effort to support nonprofits organizations working to provide direct, crucial aid to people critically affected by the coronavirus pandemic.  

“At Donorbox, our hearts go out to everyone affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic,” said Charles Z, founder at Donorbox. In these uncertain times, the company’s first focus is the well-being and safety of all individuals and nonprofits impacted by these truly challenging circumstances. Donorbox is bringing all attention to recognizing the importance of coming together as a community to support all those affected and help mitigate the impact on nonprofits.

Donorbox is proud to be a part of the inspirational and generous nonprofit industry by supporting a wide range of nonprofits that serve all different types of causes. More recently, this includes charities and organizations that are working tirelessly to help those impacted by the pandemic, such as Feed the Frontlines NYC and Meals for the NHS, who are delivering meals to medical professionals working with individuals impacted by the virus. Whether they provide healthcare for vulnerable populations, housing for the homeless, or aid for refugees, these nonprofits do momentous work to help  those currently in dire need.

To show their support, Donorbox is discounting its platform fee from 1.5% to 0.5% effective for  April and May 2020, for humanitarian nonprofits that are bringing direct aid to those affected by the coronavirus. This relief applies to nonprofits in various areas, including:

  • Poverty relief

  • Affordable housing

  • Refugee aid

  • Healthcare

  • Social / human welfare

  • Covid-19 medical research
