3 reasons why nonprofits choose Anedot as an alternative to NationBuilder


No annual contracts, no monthly fees, no setup fees

Our approach is a little bit different than most. We don't believe in contracts, setup fees, monthly fees, or minimums.

With Anedot, what you see is what you get. We charge nonprofits 3.3% + $0.30 per transaction for credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and PayPal or 0.3% + $0.30 per transaction for ACH. That's it!

Built for recurring giving

Anedot provides a number of tools to encourage monthly membership programs including a credit card auto-updater, pop-up recurring upgrade tool, and more.

Our customers see very little recurring giving churn as a result of our optimized giving process.


With NationBuilder, everything is inside NationBuilder. It can be nice to have things in one spot, but what if you would prefer to have your website on WordPress? What if their database doesn't quite meet all of your needs?

Anedot is simple to use and provides more flexibility to organizations. We have dozens of free integrations, an official Zapier app, and multiple CRM integration options.

Anedot is super simple to customize and set up different campaigns. They offer a nonprofit rate and the option for the donor to cover the fees which is a huge win in the nonprofit world!
