Donations through Public Good for Media (PGM)
When readers choose the “Donate” action on a news story through Public Good for Media, donations are processed through the Donor Advised Fund DonateWell. DonateWell splits the donated funds equally among each organization participating in the campaign. See more about why we use DonateWell here.
The fees for donations through PGM can vary, but are usually 10.75% + $0.30. Any fees that are charged are taken out of the total donation and then the donation is split between the nonprofits on the campaign.
