Fundraising Platform DonationTo Launches New Payment Features

New Functionality Helps Consumers Keep 100% of Money Raised; Create Campaigns Without a Credit Card

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 9, 2014) - DonationTo, an online fundraising platform, today announced new features that enable consumers and charitable organizations to launch fundraising campaigns and to help keep 100 percent of the money raised. The company also announces that it has eliminated the need to have a credit card in order to launch a fundraise campaign. 

DonationTo lets any individual or charitable organization create a beautiful web page to accept donations online. No technical skills are required and DonationTo helps you keep 100 percent of all donations by enabling the donor to include administrative and credit card fees with their donation. DonationTo's data shows that half of donors are happy to cover all fees. Furthermore, by reducing the need to have a credit card to launch a fundraise-campaign, we're providing access to potentially millions of consumers who may have previously been un-served.

According to CreditCards.com, 26 percent of Americans over 18 years old with no credit card in 2012 and approximately 34 percent of survey respondents age 18 to 49 said they had no credit cards.

Key new features of DonationTo's platform include:

  • Help keep 100 percent of donations: Enable donors to cover all processing and credit card fees. This ultimately helps optimize the fundraising process.
  • Ability to use your own domain name when launching donation website. Enabling users to have their own domain creates a personalized brand. This is ideal when users are sharing their fundraising page allowing friends and family to easily draw the connection from a personalized and recognizable URL and then to donating. 
  • Ability to raise with or without a credit card: No credit card required. Individuals are just need to have a PayPal or WePay account and all donations are then direct deposited instantly into ether account.
