Charitable Donations

Applicable plans Starter Essentials Business Advanced

The charitable donation percentage allows you to directly contribute a percentage of all future revenue earned on your courses to a charity. This will not affect past transactions.



Why should I contribute and what charity will the donations go to?

At Thinkific, we believe nothing should stand in the way of education. We started out because we wanted to give course creators the power to share their knowledge with students all over the world. Now, we’re giving in a different way. 


We’ve partnered with imagine1day, an innovative non-profit tearing down barriers to education in some of the most remote parts of Ethiopia. Our friends at imagine1day have set a big goal that by 2030, all Ethiopian children have access to quality education, free of foreign aid—and we want to help! We will be donating all of the funds received from our course creators (that's you!) through our new charitable donation feature to imagine1day. We may periodically work with other charities in the future.


Sounds great! How do I set it up?

To set up the ability to contribute charitable donations, you must be using Stripe as your payment processor. If you do not have a Stripe set up, you can get started by going to the integrations section of your site settings. 


Go to the Basic Settings of your site, and under Site Details, look for the Charitable donation percentage field.


Enter a number between 0 and 100 to set a percentage (for example, 5.5) and click Save Changes. Now, 5.5% of future transactions for your courses will automatically be given to the chosen charity. That's it! You can make adjustments to this amount at any time.
