How Our Donations Websites Work
Your free donations website allows your school, church, or nonprofit organization to easily and securely process one-time, tribute (In Honor Of or In Memory Of), and recurring donations year-round. Our donation pages are mobile-responsive to look and work great on all devices, and our templates are easily customized to meet your organization’s branding standards. Branded donation forms are key to giving donors confidence in your platform that allows them to give more.
Online donations are transferred directly into your bank account and settle in about 2-5 business days. DoJiggy does not hold your money or write you a check after a fundraising campaign. Instead, we allow you to maintain your current banking relationships and process transactions directly with Stripe payment processing services.
Use the donations fundraising platform for special holiday fundraising, year-end giving appeals, and capital campaigns. Or use it as your Donate Now donation button for general, year-round giving. All nonprofits and charities in the US, Canada, and the UK qualify for free donations websites with us.
So why not get your free donation website so your organization can start to collect online donations?

Why Do Organizations Need an Online Donation Website?
While traditional methods of soliciting donations continue to be effective, having a secure, mobilized and credible online donation website is essential to nonprofit organizations and fundraisers. Online fundraising campaigns and donation websites make it much easier to receive funds from your supporters, share information and donation requests via social media, and help your organization reach fundraising campaign goals.
Easy to Share on Social Media
A donations website makes it easy to grow and maintain momentum for fundraising campaigns by sharing your website on popular social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Knowing the art of asking is still the most crucial component of receiving donations. An easy way to receive those funds online makes your fundraising efforts more effective. Mobilized donation websites for donations on the go are key here.
Reach New Supporters
Another advantage of having an online donation page is the ability for new supporters to learn about your cause. Social Media posts are one of the best ways to build brand awareness when your supporters share with their friends. Especially if you are hosting a fundraiser specific to your community or appealing to a wide audience, sharing a professional donation website is a great way to make a good first impression.
Momentum Through Transparency
Another great influence on fundraising momentum is when your backers see the support you receive from others. When donations from your supporters are transparent, new and returning supporters can see the credibility of your cause to further encourage new donations towards your campaign. Our P2P crowdfunding software offers increased functionality with fundraising thermometers, leaderboards, and scrolling donor comments.
Easily Reach Out to Previous Supporters
We can help you communicate with supporters from past initiatives, which will come in handy when launching new initiatives or campaigns that need fundraising support. Maintain an email list for marketing purposes and easily share your fundraising website via social media share buttons.
The Power of Suggestion
Our free donation platform allows administrators to configure suggested donation amounts. By understanding the activity from past campaigns, you can add suggested donation amounts to help reach your fundraising goal. For example, $5 donations can become $15, and $30 can become $50, with suggested donation buttons.
Share Your Goal
It’s difficult to reach your fundraising goals if they are not clearly defined. Administrators can make goals visible with a fundraising thermometer so that your supporters know how much further you have to hit your financial goal. As you approach your goal, supporters often donate more to help you meet your goal.
Streamline All Your Back-end Needs with Our Donations Websites
Donor Communication Capabilities
Communicate with your donors easily with our integrated email tool. Donor communication is one of the keys to fundraising success.
Powerful Reporting Tools
Our reporting allows administrators to monitor donor activity, as well as the progress of your campaign during a fundraising initiative. Whether it’s a report to obtain an update about your overall progress or donor-specific activity, our reporting tools help you obtain the necessary data to make solid decisions.
Versatile Uses of Charity Donation Websites
In Honor Of or In Memory Of tribute gifts are accepted. Donors can send a special message with their gift receipts. Tribute giving is excellent for special holiday fundraisers or health-related organizations.
Consistent donations from long-term supporters are vital. Whether you’re looking for recurring donations or collecting monthly giving memberships or dues, our free donations website can easily handle it. Recurring donors receive an account to log in and manage their monthly donations.
Online Fundraising Campaigns
Our free donations website assures that you have the same look and feel whenever you’re hosting a special campaign or initiative. Supporters never question whether their donations will be secure, as we keep your brand consistent to build supporter confidence and trust.
Who Uses Our Donations Websites?

- Schools, universities, private educational institutions
- Religious or faith-based organizations, such as churches, temples, synagogues, and mosques
- Nonprofit organizations of all kinds of causes and efforts

How Does Credit Card Payment Processing Work?
Stripe is the payment processor on our donations platform, and all funds will be processed directly by them. The donation process can be broken down into three simple steps:
1. Donors submit their credit card information
Donors submit their credit card information on your donation website. One of the most important things to prioritize when choosing donations software is to verify that the integrated payments or merchant services account stringently follows PCI and industry-standard security practices. With sensitive information such as credit card numbers, address verification numbers, and CVV2 codes, we meet these industry standards to ensure that your donors’ sensitive information is secure.
2. A credit card transaction is authorized
Once your supporter has submitted their donation details, your free donation website contacts the credit card issuing bank to safely and securely verify that the bank card is active and available with the necessary funds for the transaction. The information is encrypted to ensure that the highest security protocols are used.
3. Your organization receives the funds in 2-5 business days
During your Stripe configuration, your organization will designate the bank account where you wish to receive funds. Once your bank account is verified, the funds from your donation website will typically be received within 2-5 business days. We do not hold your funds and write a check later. You will receive all funds directly into your designated bank account, less the transaction fees.
