Note: Contributions are currently only available for Meetups in the United States.
Organizers and leadership teams don’t have to shoulder the costs of Meetups by themselves. Contributions are optional, one-time payments members can choose to make as a way to support the Meetups they love.
Allowing contributions for your Meetup is completely optional. Whether or not you provide the option, free Meetups will remain free to members, and Meetup groups collecting member dues will still collect dues.
Contributions are automatically enabled for all new Meetup groups, but organizers can disable or re-enable them at any time.

To collect contributions, organizers will need to set up a WePay account. Please note that all contributions are subject to a small transaction fee; WePay collects 2.8% + $0.30 as a service fee to process the payment, and Meetup collects 4.7% + $0.20.
