The Charity Finance Group have published a new guide to online giving. They said:
Online giving platforms have been in existence for over a decade and there are now a large number of operators offering a range of services. As charity supporters have become increasingly familiar with digital financial transactions, taking donations online has become essential.
Making the most of digital donations: A practical guide to selecting and using online giving platforms (PDF) offers organisations a strategic approach when choosing a provider and will be a valuable resource for all charities that are looking at how they can maximise their fundraising presence online by working with online giving platforms. The guide will also be particularly useful for smaller charities that may be less sure about how online giving platforms work or what they need to do when working with different partners.
