When considering which provider to use, it can be difficult to find their pricing information so I’ve aggregated it here. There are more variables beyond cost since different businesses offer different options in reporting and wrap around services. Some of the providers require an application process for nonprofits for charitable or logistic reasons. Below I’ve provided a price chart for each business. Monthly fee packages govern the number of outgoing messages, simultaneous campaigns, and wrap around services you can run.
|Business Name||Sign-up Fee||Monthly Fee||Transaction Fee|
|mGive||$500||$400 to $1,500||$0.35 plus 3.5%|
|Mobile Cause||$350||$100 to $250||$0.50|
|CauseCast||Uses Mobile Cause Platform|
|Give by Cell||$0 Waive||$49||$0.48|
