Why Your Nonprofit Should Accept Credit Card Donations

If you work for a nonprofit or not-for-profit organization, you know how important credit card processing is to fundraising. Today’s most successful mission-driven organizations have turned away from costly and ineffective mailers in favor of fast and convenient cyber-driven outreach efforts. Allowing your donors to contribute via credit card makes the giving process easy — it also reduces the manpower required to send receipts, mail thank-you notes, record donor demographics and more.


But you probably also know how expensive credit card processing can be. Every credit and debit transaction costs your organization money that could be used to achieve your mission. Will the contributions gained by allowing your donors to contribute via credit card exceed what you’ll have to pay in fees to your credit card processor? The chances are good that the answer will be “yes” when you choose a low-cost, reliable credit card processor.

Save Money on Nonprofit Credit Card Donations

Striking a balance between earning more donations, while limiting expensive credit card fees and getting outstanding customer service, is the goal of every nonprofit operations team.  Although credit card fees can be a costly expense of doing business, luckily the payment processing industry is extremely competitive. This competitiveness translates to savings opportunities for your organization — if you know where to look.
