What's the best way to give online? Electronic Bank Transfer. It's the most effective way to maximize your giving. As you can see below, an Electronic Transfer is the cheapest method to process gifts for Brookside and maximizes the reach of your gift.
FOR EVERY $100 YOU GIVE:
- Electronic Bank Transfer costs us 25 cents in processing fees (Total Giving: $99.75)
- Debit Card charges 1.75% of your total transaction, plus 30 cents (Total Giving: $97.95)
- Credit Card charges 2.5% of your total transaction, plus 30 cents (Total Giving: $97.20)
- AMEX has an even higher rate and would net only $96.20
As you can imagine, these fees add up when multiplied by greater amounts and over hundreds of gifts a month.
