How Our Free 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 the 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, capital campaigns, and more. Or use it as your Donate Now donation button for general, year-round giving.
So why not sign up and get your free donation website up and running so your organization can collect online donations now?

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 donations websites make it so 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 important component of receiving donations. Having 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. In fact, Social Media posts are one of the best ways to build brand awareness when your supporters share with their group of 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 your fundraising momentum is when your supporters see the amount of 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. As an 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.

Donor Communication Capabilities

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.

How Does Credit Card Payment Processing Work?
It’s essential for fundraisers to learn the basics of what happens to funds processed through your donation website. Stipe 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 assure 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 assure that the highest security protocols are used.
