Do you want to raise more money for your charity, and do it faster? In-person cash fundraising can be a wonderful tool, but it takes a lot of time, and not everyone who wants to contribute has cash at hand. By implementing charity credit card processing into your organization, no matter how big or small it is, you can start raising money faster and easier than before.

Get more time
Running a charity can already be a very time-consuming activity, and even if you are able to get a salary for your work, there’s always more work to do in a charity than you have time for.
By using charity credit card processing to enable electronic payments, you can completely remove the need to spend time on going door-to-door or doing other in-person fund raising activities. Spend that time on doing other value-adding activities in your charity… or, if you and your volunteers love the in-person fundraising, read on to see how you can get more out of it.
Get more contributions
If your charity can only accept donations in cash or by check, you’re likely to meet many people who would love to support your charity but can’t donate because they don’t have cash and they don’t use checks.
As we’re steadily moving towards becoming a cash-less society, this is only going to become a bigger problem. Accepting donations via credit and debit cards can open you up to many more charitable contributions.
Not only can you raise more funds with the activities that you already organize – you can add Internet Marketing into the mix!
E.g. email is an extremely valuable tool for charities, and if you can take donations online, you can send out regular emails to previous contributors to ask them for more support.
With charity credit card processing, you can use email, Social Media, and other tools to drive traffic and donations to your charity.
Increase the Average Contribution Value
Similar to the previous point, even when people do have some cash on their person, it’s not likely to be much more than a couple of crumpled up George Washington’s or some coins. By getting charity credit card processing, you give donors an opportunity to increase the size of their donations very easily. This is especially attractive for those individuals who like to contribute regularly, and use the donations for tax deductions – with an online system, you make it both easy to donate large amounts and to get a receipt they can use for their tax records later.
