Non Profit Fundraising Websites

Last Modified: 2016-03-24
I am on the board of directors for our local youth baseball league.

We would like to create a page where we can capture sponsorship donations online. I was wondering if anyone has recommendations on websites that will allow me to set up a donation page and then have the captured funds transferred to either our bank account or our paypal account.

We are looking for a site that has no up-front fee and a reasonable per-transaction fee.

Thanks

Brian

Do you want a whole separate site or just a payment method (e.g. PayPal Donate Button)?

Is the league a 501c3?

Hi Jason,

I just need a page that can accept payment - we have a complete website that handles all of our other needs - http://www.sloyouthbaseball.com 

We are a 501c3.

Alexandre, thanks for the links - I will dig into these.

Hi guys,

I submitted a help ticket to my website platform provider, Blue Sombrero, and it turns out that they have a payment service called Sombrero Pay that can handle donations and operates as an extension of my content management system.

I was able to set up the following:
https://clubs.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=147170&donationid=416&mainctl=PayDonation

It is not amazing, but it will work for the time being. I will look further into Paypal and the other options listed above to determine my long-term solution.

Thanks for your help.

Hmph.  Paypal would be 2.2% + 0.30/per.  Stick with yours.
