How much of my donation goes to the fundraising cause?
100EW gives donors the option of paying the fee, so that 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit organization you are supporting. This makes you extra extraordinary! The fee pays for credit card processing and covers administration of the site so we can offer the option to pledge. A portion of every fee is being set aside to develop a foundation that will give grants.
