Are my donations tax deductible?
Your donations, less fees, should be 100% tax-deductible. However, we must recommend that you certify the tax-deductibility of your GiveTide donations with your tax advisor.
How does GiveTide work?
After you have attached your bank, GiveTide will automatically round up the spare change on your everyday puchases to the nearest dollar. You can set a weekly cap to automatically turn off roundups after a specific amount.
Is GiveTide Free?
GiveTide is free to use for donors. Nonprofits are charged 8% of Round-up donations, and 2.79% of one-time donations. Our donor-advised fund partner charges 1% bringing the total fundraising percentages to 9% and 3.79%, respectively. GiveTide Plus members are eligible to receive a discounted fee of 5% on Round-up donations. If your organization is interested in joining the GiveTide Plus Program, please reach out to Contact@GiveTide.com.
Is GiveTide secure?
