Frequently Asked Questions

 
If you are fundraising as part of a group (we call it a community), the are no costs to fundraise the first $1,000 on our platform.
 
Contact michel@probueno.com if you have questions about this.
 
Generally (or beyond the first $1,000 raised on a community), for every $100 in donations:
  • the nonprofit collects a net of $92.75
  • ProBueno collects $3 to power its services
  • and $4.25 are used to cover donation processing charges such as credit card processing, cutting checks to nonprofits, and supporting the donation processing infrastructure of our partner, FirstGiving
We support over 1 million nonprofits. We are pretty sure we support most nonprofits. We actually pull directly from the IRS the list of 501(c)3 organizations that are in good standing, essentially registered non-profits (universities, charities, churches, etc.).
 
If you cannot find your organization in our list, please email us at support@probueno.com.
Yes! You know best what your time is worth and what people are generally willing to pay for your offer. The price is set by default to $20 and you can edit it at any time.
 
Generally, we encourage our users to set a lower price in the beginning until they can get traction on their offers and then raise their price.
No, your time on ProBueno is not tax-deductible, even if you are collecting donations.
 
Our lawyers tell us that it's actually the same as if you volunteered for an organization. We do not know of any way for you to deduct the time from your taxes.
Of course not!
 
I’m sure your friends would be appalled if you suddenly started charging them a donation every time they needed a little help.
 
When we talk about favors, what we really mean are the ones that you would normally never get around to. For example, when your neighbor’s brother-in-law needs a new logo for his business or your cousin’s roommate is trying to get a job in your industry. Offering to help ProBueno gives you that extra incentive to make time for that person, even if they are only a friend of a friend. Most importantly, that person is purchasing your help, which means that he or she is sure to value and respect your time.
No, it is not.
 
Once someone makes a donation to talk to you, we will need to coordinate logistics.
