I've been fussing at people the past few weeks about not being able to take online donations. I contend that it is not just the wave of the future, but more accurately the wave of the now....and that if you don't have the ability to take donations by credit card and PayPal, you are turning away money--especially from donors age 30 and under.....
So, in the current issue of the Chronicle of Philanthropy, what shows up? An article about Groundspring.org which is building a new tool called "Enterprise" which is designed not only to help nonprofits take donations online, but to combine an individual's donation, volunteer, and activism information in one tool. Good online info.
Then more: Network for Good is expanding its online system to help nonprofits take donation online. Great stuff!
Check them both out.
