Our zero commission approach
We don't take a cut from micro-project donations
We have chosen not to take a cut from any donations that have been made towards the micro-project you choose to support. This is because we want to ensure that our local heroes receive as much of your dollar as possible to support their life-changing work.
Each donation made through our website will be subject to an unavoidable 30c + 2.9% fee which is taken by our payment provider (Stripe) before your donation reaches Just Peoples. The rest of every donation is then transferred across to our project partners so our local heroes can get to work on your chosen micro-project.
But how do we support our overhead costs?
Our Founding 50 currently supports just Peoples’ overhead costs. Our Founding 50 is a group of 50 of our very first individual and business supporters who have believed in our vision from the start. Each member makes regular donations which enable us to cover our on-going costs, such as running our website, finding people to fund our micro-projects as well as supporting us to scale up our operations.
