Engiven Custody enables Premium users to create designated giving funds where donated crypto is held, not exchanged. When a donor chooses this fund from the giving page, the donated cryptocurrency is deposited into a custody account and held. When the nonprofit wishes to exchange the held crypto for USD, they have this functionality by using their Engiven dashboard (custody to exchange fees apply).
All donations that are deposited into a custody account will be charged a 1.5% fee at the time of deposit. When these funds are exchanged for USD, there will be an additional 1.5% fee for the exchange.
