Increase Donations By Offering Multiple Payment Systems And Methods
To be able to collect more donations, organizations must be able to offer different ways of sending donations. This facilitates how they collect donations, and at the same time, makes it easy for them to deliver seamless and hassle-free experiences to donors. Luckily, Donorbox supports different payment systems and methods which include Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal Express, and ACH bank transfer. If donors want to send one-off or recurring donations, they can either select Apple Pay or Google Pay. In case they prefer giving donations with lower transaction fees, they can send their donations through ACH bank transfer. PayPal, obviously, is a great option as well, as it is a reliable and fast payment system.
Enable Gift Matching
Donorbox also has another interesting feature that gives organizations the opportunity to increase donations. This feature is called gift matching. Gift matching is a gift-giving program implemented by organizations to encourage employees to double the donations given by their colleagues to other organizations that are eligible to receive donations. So how exactly does this program work? For instance, when a particular employee sent a donation worth of $100 to a nonprofit organization, another employee is given a chance to match that donation and send a $200 donation to the same nonprofit organization, thereby doubling the donation.
Set Up And Collect Recurring Donations With Ease
The fundraising software simplifies the process of setting up and collecting recurring donations or those donations that are being made on a regular basis, which can be weekly, monthly, or annually. With Donorbox, users can quickly create recurring donations within the software without the need to register again and include additional information.
Extend The Reach Of Your Fundraising Campaigns
In order for organizations to reach out to larger audiences and acquire more donors, they should be given the capability to launch and promote their fundraising campaigns effectively. With Donorbox, they will be able to extend the reach of their campaigns by taking advantage of its campaign marketing features.
Donorbox allows users to fill their website with donation forms. They can do that by simply copying and pasting a code into the website. When an individual wants to make a donation through the website, he or she can access the embedded donation form with just a single click of a button. They can also promote their campaigns on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
They can even activate a donate button on a Facebook page built for a fundraising campaign. When a donor hits this button, he or she will be automatically redirected to the organization’s main campaign page. In addition, Donorbox lets them set up a donation wall, giving them and their donors a place where they can talk on matters related to the campaign.
Assign Donor Profiles So Donors Can Track And Manage Their Own Donations
A good fundraising software should be equipped with features that simplify donor management. Donorbox actually includes such features so users can build and maintain long-lasting and strong relationships with their donors. The software permits donors to manage and track their own donations by assigning a donor profile to each of them.
Understand Your Donors By Allowing Them To Answer Custom Questions
Users can also set up custom questions that donors can answer through various ways like typing in texts, clicking radio buttons, and selecting checkboxes and dropdown options. With this feature, users will be able to easily collect any information they want to know about their donors and understand them deeply.
Add Notes To Turn Donor/Donation Data Into Meaningful Insights
Note-taking is another donor management feature included in Donorbox. As users view records associated with the people who sent donations to their organization, they will be able to access a small text window where they can enter texts. This text window is like a notepad that permits them to type in anything they want about a particular donor or donation. For example, they can add notes to indicate that a person is their best donor so far. Therefore, with this feature, donor, and donation data can be turned into meaningful insights.
Comply With Laws And Tax Regulations
Organizations who want to raise money for whatever cause, mission, or goal should not only focus on collecting donations. They must also see to it that they are not violating any important law or tax regulation. This is one reason why Donorbox is a powerful fundraising software, as it enables them to always take into account compliance while they are collecting and managing donations. They can instantly generate and send tax receipts to donors as well as set up and distribute online donation forms that comply with the GDPR regulation.
Donorbox can also be integrated with the tools that users are familiar with like Zapier, Salesforce, and MailChimp. Zapier is a popular development platform that permits users to build business applications that are highly automated, integrated, and interoperable. So, if they have an application built using Zapier, they can extend the features of Donorbox to that app. Meanwhile, integrating the software with Salesforce enables them to manage donor engagements directly on Salesforce. In case they want to reach out to donors through automated email marketing campaigns, the MailChimp integration perfectly gives them that capability.
Fundraising Campaign Analytics
The fundraising software makes it possible for users to analyze the performance of their fundraising campaigns and efforts, and come up with valuable insights which they can use for optimizing fundraising performance. They can leverage tracking codes from Google Analytics, Google eCommerce and AdWords, and Facebook Pixel to monitor how efficient and engaging their campaigns are.
