Fee-Free Giving

Why does this matter?
Because every cent of your donation should go to the cause. Period. At Encast, we do everything we can to ensure every penny of money given to the charity ends up in the hands of those causes that are doing great work.

How does it work?
Like many workplace giving tools, Encast charges a low per-employee subscription fee—and that subscription fee goes to a Donor Advised Fund (DAF). This DAF will collect interest overtime, which we use to pay for the processing of donations.

How other employee giving platforms measure up:

This is the unfortunate truth: every workplace giving tool takes a portion of charitable dollars to fees. Even the ones that claim to be “fee-free” take a small portion of it. If their website doesn’t share their fee, their lack of transparency can be a red flag.

  • Benevity charges an administrative fee to their charitable foundation partners of 5-7% before the funds are distributed to causes.
  • United Way typically takes 20% of the donation for administrative fees.
  • Global Giving retains up to 15% of every donation
