Like Fundraise Up, Stripe functions on a transactional fee model. There are no costs to open a Stripe account and no contractual obligations.

Creating a new Stripe account

If your organization does not yet have a Stripe account, or wants to create a new Stripe account for use with Fundraise Up, visit the Stripe page in the payment options section of your account’s settings. Select the Create new account button.

Next, select the Activate Stripe account button and follow the prompts in Stripe to finish activating your Stripe account.

Connecting an existing Stripe account

If your organization already has a Stripe account, visit the Stripe page in the payment options section of your account’s settings. Select the Connect Stripe account option and follow the prompts to connect the Stripe account.

Your Stripe user account must have either the Administrator or Developer role to connect Stripe to Fundraise Up.

Stripe nonprofit discount

Stripe offers a fee discount to eligible nonprofits. To learn more about eligibility requirements and to apply for the discount, visit Stripe’s website.
