Fee discount for nonprofit organizations
Stripe offers a discounted processing fee for qualifying nonprofit organizations. Stripe's custom charity pricing structure is only applicable for organizations accepting donations (e.g. not selling products or tickets), and by receiving these discounted rates, your organization will be agreeing to primarily use your Stripe account for this purpose.
If your organization has nonprofit status and will be processing 80% or more of donation payments on Stripe, email email@example.com with the following information:
Your EIN, or a letter from the IRS designating your 501(c)(3) status
Confirmation of the primary email address associated with your Stripe account
Confirmation that greater than 80% of your payment volume will be tax-deductible donations.
Some examples of non-eligible donations include membership fees, tuition payments, ticket sales, registration fees, and auction payments.

What is the process and how long will it take?
In most applications, the account approval process is nearly instantaneous and you will be able to accept payments right away. If Stripe needs more information about your business or expects a longer delay in approving your account, they will reach out to you immediately. Businesses on Stripe’s Restricted Business List commonly experience longer processing delays. If you are running a business that has trouble accepting payments online, we recommend reviewing Stripe’s Restricted Business documentation. If you’re not sure if your business falls into the categories listed here, reach out to Stripe Support.
What information and documents do I need to sign up for Stripe?
