In January 2019, BT MyDonate, a popular fundraising platform in the U.K. announced that it was shutting down. Now MyDonate customers must choose an alternative fundraising software. And fast!
Are you still using MyDonate? If so, your donors only have until midnight on Sunday, June 30, 2019 to donate through the platform. After that, MyDonate will cease to exist. More information about the closure can be found here.
Many MyDonate users have already made the switch to Donorbox, but what if you haven’t made up your mind? Time is running out! Consider Donorbox as an excellent and affordable alternative to MyDonate. There’s no need to worry about the hassle of switching to Donorbox because we make it easy.
If you are comparing the many MyDonate alternative fundraising platforms out there, you need to consider two obvious criteria. First, fees – the more funds go toward your charity’s work, the better. Second, it’s important to look at the functionalities on offer – some platforms provide more services than others.
Donorbox is free for the first $1,000 raised and we have the lowest processing fees on the market at just 1.5%
At Donorbox, we understand how important it is to maximize the donated funds that go to your work. We are proud to have developed our business model in a way that is, has been, and will continue to be extremely low-cost to all charities and nonprofits around the world.
A. Robust Features & Functionalities
Our standard feature set gives charities the ability to create a combination of donation forms and fundraising campaign pages. The difference with Donorbox is in the details. These are just some of the many powerful and helpful features we offer:
1. Monthly, Annual, Quarterly, or Weekly Recurring Donations
It takes only one click to set up a recurring donation. No extra registration screens or information are required!
2. Fast Checkout
3. Safety and Security
Keep your donors and donations protected with Donorbox’s powerful security measures, like Fraud Detection and SSL / TLS Encryption. And Donorbox doesn’t store any credit/debit card information. All card and bank account data are tokenized before charging.
4. Donor Management
Manage your donors and their donations efficiently! Every recurring Donor is automatically allocated a Donor Profile, complete with login details and a password. Donors can manage their own recurring donation plans.
You can add up to 10 custom questions to learn more about your donors. Gather your Donors’ contact information easily. Set this information as optional, or compulsory when required. Add your own Internal Notes to each Donor or Donation.
5. Donors Can Cover Fees
Give donors the option to cover the processing fee on their donations. The fee will be added on, so only one donation is processed.
6. Multi-Currency and Multi-Language Support
Accept donations from anyone, no matter where they are in the world. Donorbox forms support over 20 popular currencies and nine different languages – English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Danish and Swedish.
7. Pop-up Donation Forms
Instead of redirecting your donors to a separate donation page, have your donation form pop up on the same screen when someone presses your donate button. Find out more and try it out here.
8. Goal Meter
Share your fundraising progress with the world using our Goal Meter. Include it as part of your form design or embed it separately.
9. Complete Customization
Make Donorbox forms totally your own by customizing them to blend in perfectly with your nonprofit’s branding and website.
10. Email and other Integrations
11. Tax and Legal
Send donors automatic tax receipts per donation as well as year-end tax receipts. Plus our forms are GDPR-friendly and donors can make anonymous donations.
Monitor your fundraising efforts to see what works and what doesn’t. Works with Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel, and Google eCommerce and Adwords Tracking.
