Sticker Financials

Distributed at cost - paid for by donations.

Back to GiveMore Stickers

We have chosen not to profit directly from the stickers. 

GiveMore supports its operations through donor tipping rather than a platform fee and is exploring ways to work with the business community to ensure that funds to causes go as far as possible.

On this page you will find the following information:

  • Cost Break Down
    • Donation Costs
    • Sticker Costs
    • Shipping and Handling
    • A 10% royalty to the artist
  • Transparency and Reporting

 

Donation Costs

We use Stripe to process donation payments. Their fee is 2.9% + $0.30

GiveMore does not charge a platform fee for raising funds. Nor do we charge a markup on stickers.  GiveMore relies on donor tipping to cover the costs of our operations. If you like what we do, please consider tipping or supporting us directly here.

 

Sticker Costs

Stickers are generally printed on demand.  The bigger the order we make, the cheaper the stickers - it is considerable.  There is a 90% discount if we order 10k stickers at a time versus ordering 50 stickers at a time. 

That said, we will try to balance speed of delivery with trying to order larger quantities.

 

Shipping and Handling

Postage is one of our biggest expenses.  We use the USPS.  Making a donation to help cover the costs of more stickers, also helps support the postal system.

Envelopes and label printing.  This too is cheaper when done in bulk but will be balanced based on the availability of funds.

Labour - we intend to pay a minimum of $15/hr for letter stuffing.  Once demand can justify it, this will likely be outsourced to local co packers who are better equipped for this.  We hope to also work with work programs designed to support those with developmental disabilities.

From time to time we may include relevant advertising for socially aligned offers. Additional costs for doing this will be covered by the advertiser.

 

Artist Royalty

In return for supplying art, our artists will receive 10% of the donations for their sticker added to their pledge fund balance.  They will then be able to direct these funds to any cause they choose.  In order for the cause to receive the funds, they must opt into the pledge fund program and then match the funds from additional donors. 

The artists can give the funds to themselves and their own projects as well, but will still need to match the funds.  This is a great way to generate community support.

 

Transparency and Reporting

We will from time to time post updates on this program and will link to them from here as well as include them as part of our email newsletter.
