Having a great website with online giving is becoming more and more important. $15 billion of the $229 billion that individuals give to nonprofits annually comes online. And it’s growing at over 40% a year (and growing fastest for really small nonprofits). Studies show that online donations are like a gateway drug; they lead to larger and more frequent gifts - both online and off.
Did you know that 75% of the roughly 1.2 million nonprofits in the US have under $25,000 a year in revenue. And 90% have under $250,000 in revenue? Many of these nonprofits really struggle to create and maintain a great website – only 27% use websites to collect donations. Hey, it can be tough when you don’t have a ton of resources.
So, what’s a small nonprofit to do? Bellstrike to the rescue! We don’t want you to miss out. We want to make this whole website/online fundraising thing easy peasy.
