    Hello,

    I am the founder and chairman of a nonprofit organization based in Toronto, Canada with a mandate of Community Development by providing excellent education to underprivileged kids from Rusaka; a rural remote area in Burundi Central East Africa. We routinely organize fundraising through different platforms/crowdfunding like GoFundMe, social media, and door to door. After multiple discussions, we deem the organization may be better serve adding a donate button on its website for a more consistent system and an option for whomever desire to become a recurring donor.

    Would you be so kind to provide us direction on how to setup the button, requirements and cost.

    Much appreciated!

    Olivier Ndikumana

    Hello Olivier - Actually, it depends on what platform you would like to use. For example, if you want to use a Jotform to collect donations, you can build your donation form first by signing up. You can start building it from scratch or just use one of our donation templates here: https://www.jotform.com/form-templates/category/donation

    Next is to integrate it with your preferred payment processor e.g. PayPal, Stripe, or Square etc. Here are the supported payment gateways you can use: mastering-payment-form-integrations-with-jotform

    And once done building the form, you can embed it to your website as an iframe (the form is displayed on your site) or by using button/s that when clicked, will open the form - here's a guide for this one: https://www.w3docs.com/snippets/html/how-to-create-an-html-button-that-acts-like-a-link.html

    As for the cost, you can start using Jotform for FREE. This allows you to accept up to 10 donations per month. You can then upgrade to a higher paid plan to accept more submissions: https://www.jotform.com/pricing/
