When donating online, you might see a charge in your payment history as "Network For Good." This is the payment processing and donor management service we use to track and process payments. When selecting to "pay a transaction fee," you are allowing us to receive the full amount of your donation, then covering the cost of the fee that Network For Good charges. When declining this, you are still giving us a donation, but the fee comes out of the amount you pledge to us. Example - Accepted Fee: Gifting $20 to The River, you pay $20.75. Declined fee: We receive 19.25. This applies to every payment, including reoccurring payments.
