Although we still often see bell ringers on the streets at holidays asking for donations, the age of in-person giving has drastically changed. Due to the dawn of online advancements, it’s easier than ever to donate to a non-profit from a computer or smartphone anywhere in the world. At CharityKick, we know the value of instantaneous donations and have streamlined the way people can add their contribution to the charity dare and organization of their choice.
Paypal, Credit cards and other virtual giving alternatives
When charitable people give online, their payments often go directly to the sponsored organization. This can be done through websites like Paypal, which CharityKick uses, to giving is made simple and stress-free. To open an account like this, all that is usually needed is a credit card or even bank account to make the transaction. In some cases, users do not even have to open a Paypal account, but can simple donate through them with their credit or debit card on the CharityKick website.
Some other websites use different methodologies when it comes to online giving, but CharityKick has found that Paypal is the most universal and widely accepted form of virtual payment, which acts like a bank and protect both us and you during the donation process.
These days, Paypal and other online financial websites offer different alternative for taking payments. While many people use their laptops, there is an app for smartphones to make it even more seamless. Businesses on the street can accept donations too with the use of a small device that fits onto computers or phones that swipes any credit or debit card instantly.
Other ways to track your donations
Not only is it great to pay online to donate to a favorite cause, it’s easier than ever to track all your gifts for you own information or to use for tax deductions. For instance, Mint.com is a great online tool that helps organize your overall budget and allows for a section specifically focused on charity donations. It can also help you remember which non-profits you contributed to in the past to either match or raise your gift for the following year.
CharityKick teams up with non-profits to have users donate as much or as little to as many charity dares as they choose. Payments are simple and accepted online as well, bringing helping out and doing good technology innovative and stress-free.
