Say, I don;t have the adobe software suite - is there an online or freeware option available to create an adobe pdf form with tick boxes, text boxes etc? Is there a way to create this in MS Word 2013 and then convert to Adobe?
The 1st prize would be an adobe form that allows user to select checkboxes and save and email this back.

Hi

You can try this:
PDF Converter

But for edit boxes, I normally use Adobe suite.

Google Forms is a FREE and very easy tool to accomplish this...

Invite an unlimited number of respondents to your form by sharing the URL, emailing an embedded form so they can respond without leaving their Gmail inbox, or adding it to a website.

Does Adobe have a discount option for non profit organisations? The Adobe Suite looks the best option.

i'm telling you, Adobe suite is, for me, the best option, but generaly with a huge price on it.

Have a look at this link:

Wilder1626 Do you use  Forms Central for Forms exclusively? I'm trying to make the form compact - to keep it to a single page back to back. Forms Central doesn't seem to allow one much flexibility to conserve space. Any ideas?

I'm using adobe acrobat Pro to create form.

What you can do is to create your form in Word or Excel, and then from Adobe Acrobat Pro, you go in Tool / Create / PDF Form:
One of the choice if to use an existing file (PDF, Word, Excel or other file type).

If you have any textbox in the Word or Excel file, Adobe Acrobat will automatically be converting those fields.
