Online giving platforms are a unique type of fundraising software that allows nonprofits and individuals to accept donations online. Without a virtual giving platform, there would be no way for supporters to digitally transfer funds to you, limiting your fundraising potential to gifts that can be accepted by cash or check.
There are hundreds of different online giving tools out there for use by both nonprofits and individuals, so how can you be sure to choose the best one? The “best” platform for your organization is the one that fits your needs most closely. You can determine the right fit by examining features such as pricing and fees, customization options, the potential for streamlined user experience, and how easily it can be embedded in your website.
Our favorite resource: Fundly! Fundly is a crowdfunding platform designed for both nonprofit and individual use to raise money for any cause. It’s easy to use and free to get started, with only a small percentage of donations taken for platform fees.
