Donations Made Simple

Donations in less than 10 seconds

Donate2 Screenshot

We made this really simple.

It all starts with a link to a beautiful and responsive donation form where payment is made with Apple Pay, Google Pay, or one of those other cool digital wallets. Regular ol’ credit cards are just fine too. Through the magic of Stripe, the funds end up in your bank account. Through the power of our integrations, Donate2 puts the donation in your CRM and triggers a receipt.

You’re not dreaming. This is real.

WHAT IS DONATE2?

Donate2 is an easy-to-use and modern fundraising software built with a focus on CRM integration.

With Donate2, organizations raise more money and connect with new audiences.

Remove The Barrier

 “We're so happy! We've received more donations through Donate2 in the first 3 hours then we have all year from our website.”

The Smith Center for the Performing Arts
Carol Hollatz - Director of Annual Fund

Remove the Barrier to Give

Most organizations can take donations through their website, but the process can overwhelm potential donors with account creation, logging in, choosing funds, completing long forms, and other barriers that can slow down and even prevent them from completing the transaction. That approach may have its place, but what about when someone just wants to give, no questions asked?

With Donate2, we make it really simple. The donor taps or clicks a link, your customized Donate2 form loads, and payment is made. If you like, the transaction data can go into your CRM for easy reporting and a receipt can be sent to the donor.

Donations in under 10 Seconds

That’s right, we've timed it. Donate2 is so fast and so easy to use, we’ve seen donations take place in 9.547 seconds from the point the donation form is loaded to when the thank you page is displayed. That includes capturing the donor details and payment information all in under 10 seconds.

We're capable of processing well over 50,000 transactions in 5 minutes for a single Donate2 account. At $100 each, that would be $5 million in donations. But why stop there? We’re continually improving and optimizing our processes.

Payments Made Easy

Payments Made Easy

Don’t make your donors dig through their pockets and purses for a credit card! We make the process faster and easier with digital wallet payment methods. Accept Apple Pay, Google Pay, Microsoft Pay, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club, and Alipay payments from customers worldwide.

Donate2 presents your donor with the best payment option configured on their device. And of course, we always present the option of payment with a credit card.

Every Cent Counts

Give your donors the option to help just a little bit more. Cover Costs gives your donors the option to cover transaction fees associated with their donation. You can customize the percentage added for Cover Costs that works best for you.

We've seen when donors are presented with the Cover Costs option on a Donate2 form, the majority of donors use it.

Experience Donate2 in Action

Scan the Boston Symphony Orchestra or the Seattle Children's Theatre QR code with your smartphone camera or tap on them to be taken to their Donate2 form.

Go ahead and be the donor for 10 seconds. It's the best demo you'll get.

Our Pricing

With three plans, payable monthly or yearly, Donate2 works for organizations of every size and shape. All plans include unlimited forms and users, the ability to allow donors to select Cover Costs to help with transaction fees, and powerful integrations. Choose a plan that works best for where your organization is today—you can adjust at any time.

Our introductory offer is available until October 1, 2020 on our Low Volume monthly plan.

Create your Donate2 Account

We're really into making things easy. It will take you less than 3 minutes to create your Donate2 account! Watch the video to be guided through the account creation process.

SEATTLE CHILDREN'S THEATRE

“At Seattle Children’s Theatre we are thrilled with the way Donate2 has solved one of the biggest obstacles in giving—making it easy. For years we have heard complaints from donors as they have struggled through clunky giving portals, but with Donate2 the experience is seamless. The donor is able to give in a click or two, and the Tessitura backend is as easy as if they had logged it in directly themselves.”

Kevin Malgesini - Managing Director

FORMS WITH FUNCTION

Forms that Simply Work

The key to a good form is keep the message short and sweet–don't go overboard front-loading the form with too much information. If you have additional details you want from your donor, ask after the donation is complete. The highest performing forms are often the simplest. They have a logo or branding, a short but informative headline, and just enough copy so potential donors understand your request before moving onto our easy payment options.


“We developed a cool dashboard to monitor Donate2 activity. We're seeing 83% are new donors, 15% never bought a ticket from us, and 80% used Cover Cost.

The Smith Center for the Performing Arts
Daniel Neel - Vice President of Development

Flexible Ask Amounts

Configure each form to deliver the ask just the way you need it. Donate2 lets you present the donor with a range of suggested donation amounts and a default amount to communicate what you’d like them to give. Using the “Other amount” option allows for them to enter any amount up to $99,999. To top it off, enable our game-changing Cover Costs options to maximize your donors' impact and deliver 100% of the donation to you.

You’ll be surprised at people's generosity when you let them say how much they'll give!

Personalized Ask

Personalized Ask & Personalized Forms

Personalize a "One-Click Donation" button in your donor email that loads a Donate2 form with a Personalized Ask amount using our supported URL parameters. Also, you can pre-populate the credit card form with the first name, last name, and email making it even easier for your donor to give.  Use our URL parameters to personalize the text content of your donation form.

For Example:
Dear Stephen,
Thank You, Sydney
Can we count on you Mike?

If that’s not enough personalization for you, you can even create your own URL parameters for more customization.

When you personalize the donation ask, it really makes an impact.

Show Their Impact

Use our goal feature to show donors what you're working towards. The Gift goal shows a progress bar for the total number of gifts generated by the specific form and the Financial goal shows the same but for a set dollar amount.

Add one or both to a form to inspire more people to join your cause!

Lock It In

When you are finished building your form and you are ready to share it with the world, enable the Lock on the form to protect it from edits. You can unlock the form at any time to make updates and changes, even when its live.

BOSTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

“We continue to find new ways to fuse Donate2 with all of our Marketing and Fundraising efforts. As we move forward, we're excited to work with the team at Donate2 on the next stage of new product features and integrations between Donate2, Prospect2 and Tessitura.”

Michael Moore - Associate Director of Marketing Insights

MEET YOUR DONORS WHERE THEY ARE

Market your Donate2 Links

Be creative, think outside the box (cardboard in some cases), and get your cause out there. Include a link to your Donate2 form in your emails, video streams, and social media posts. It doesn't have to be screaming “GIVE, GIVE, GIVE!” but a simple one-click giving reminder goes a long way.

We can’t wait to see how you use Donate2.

Email

You can put links in so many places! Why not subtly slide your Donate2 link into all of your email campaigns, allowing a donation to be made in just a few clicks. To generate even more donations, target just the right moment, like right after a prospective donor has visited you, or when you're announcing something big. When you combine our Prospect2 and Tessitura integrations, you can tie the donation directly to the email campaign to see just how many donations that email generated.

QR Code

A QR code provides a great short cut, allowing someone to point their phone camera (no app needed!) at your QR code that will take them right to your donation form. Imagine this as a part of your wait screen during a live stream, a targeted social media ad, or a mailer. It’s super easy and the best part is that no one has to type anything!

The Boston Symphony Orchestra includes QRCodes with a vanity URL in their flagship video content.

Cardboard

James Taylor and his family, longtime supporters of the Boston Symphony Orchestra with fond memories of Tanglewood, included a donation request in a recent video. The family held up a cardboard sign with the web address of a Tanglewood Donate2 form and the impact for BSO has been significant.

We hope this inspires you to think outside the (cardboard) box and engage your biggest supporters to help in ways you never imagined possible because giving to your organization has never been easier.

SMS

If you're using SMS, great. If not, you should really start an SMS marketing program. For SMS capabilities, you can turn to tools like Prospect2 or Twilio. After an event or performance, use SMS to target just the right moment when a donation opportunity is at its greatest. You can do better than “Plz give 2 us K thx bye”. Leverage SMS marketing by setting up a keyword on your SMS number that will trigger a Donate2 form to be sent to the number that texts you. It’s an easy way to connect using a modern tool.

Text “Donate2” to tel: +1(773)770-4377 to see SMS in action.

Social Media

Add your Donate2 links into all of your social media posts including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. It can be subtle or it can be a full out fund raising effort. Before Donate2, your big influencers wouldn't be open to linking their followers to a complex donation process. With Donate2, that has all changed.

Your influencers can now promote your Donate2 links with confidence that their followers will generate results and they can truly help your organization.

THE SMITH CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS

“The decision to add Donate2 to our digital toolset for fundraising was a no-brainer. We are grateful for Donate2 and the timing was perfect.”

Daniel Neel - Vice President of Development
