I was looking at the Gofundme site just now, planning on setting up the fundraiser so we can start moving towards our 501(c)(3) status.  But after looking at their fees, I'm having second thoughts about going that route.  Between Gofundme and WePay, the site they use to process the payments, a total of 7.9% + $0.30 is taken out for each donation.

Using our own website and Paypal, we reduce those fees to about 3%.  Trouble is, I'm not sure if we would reach as many potential donors.  I created a webpage, so I think we're gonna try going that route and see what comes of it.  We can always set up a Gofundme account in a bit if donations aren't coming in thru the website.  =)
