The Ultimate Non Profit Plugin For Accepting Donations on WordPress

I love what GiveWP has going on. I do!

But I’m still searching for the ultimate non profit plugin for accepting donations on WordPress. I love what IgnitionDeck has going on, but still…. I’m left searching for the ultimate non profit plugin for accepting donations on WordPress.

Repetition is Redundant, I know. But here’s what the plugin would look like:

Accepting Donations on WordPress
Accepting Donations on WordPress Should be Easy (but responsible)

There’s a …’gap’ if-you-will, that’s still not being filled.

Let’s use an example. Manna Worldwide is a mission’s organization that (amongst other things) does mission trips. They don’t want any ‘Joe Schmoe’ using their name to raise funds over on GoFundMe, or any other platform, right? Nor does Manna want anyone who is going on a $1,800 mission trip soliciting some inordinate amount like $2,300, right? Let’s say some ‘Joe Schmoe’ then decides to take the dough and not go on the trip.
Hi, I'm Individual One

I have tried to raise as much money as possible for my mission trip (marathon for charity, youth camp, whatever), & the amount raised fell a bit short of the goal. What happens to the money that I raised?

I'm quite deceptive (but you'll never know it)! I'm just using some event I found online to raise money for ...ME!

I’m quite deceptive (but you’ll never know it)! I’m just using some event I found online to raise money for me …Me …ME!!

I want to go on the mission trip (youth camp, marathon for charity, …whatever else) but I like to change both the date of the event, and I’ve also added a few hundred dollars to the event’s actual cost.  Now I get to have a little extra spending money. Aren’t I a genius?!?!

I’m going on the mission trip (or any other even).  I used the event name correctly, I put in the appropriate amount, and used the correct cut off date as well.

Think it doesn’t happen?  It does.  But let’s just agree to move on to a solution.

non-profit or church needs to be in charge of creating the campaign
non-profit or church needs to be in charge of creating the campaign

The organization ~ Missions Organization, Church, Non Profit ~ needs to be in the driver’s seat. Not the individual.

  • The Non-Profit needs to be in charge of what the amount being raised
    • That way the amount isn’t “changed” or “adjusted” by some one wanting a little extra spending money 
  • The Non-Profit needs to be in charge of what account the funds go into
    • The actual account needs to be wherever the organization chooses ~ not the individual
  • Excess, if any, needs to go to the organization
    • Again, the question of ‘what happens to any extra’ needs to be addressed at the organization level ~ not the individual


So what’s the individual’s role in all this?  Well, it’s really simple.  Their job is to share, email, tweet, twerk, promote, publicize, pin, post, snap, chat, flick, tumble (or whatever social network pops up next) for the fundraising campaign!

These folks are in charge of promotion, promotion, promotion!
These folks are in charge of promotion, promotion, promotion!

This would be a great time to drop a link here of a movie that came out last year called Believe Me Movie. It didn’t get much publicity, but basically it’s a mix of con-artists, Christianity, church folks, and the ease of deception with a bunch of college kids.

Ok, back to the solution for accepting donations on WordPress.

  1. The admin needs to be able to set up the individuals who are going.
  2. They enter the name of the person
  3. Then the amount needed
  4. A deadline or cut-off date
  5. Determine of ‘excess’ amounts are allowed, or….
  6. If the campaign simply ends once the set amount is raised
  7. Which bank account funds go to
  8. It can be self hosted, or….
  9. A plugin (but don’t forget, it’d be a lot easier to promote if it was a stand alone site)
  10. Don’t charge extra fees.  Really.  Make it a flat rate of $10 – $20 ~ either per organization, or per person.
  11. Remember, none of the campaigns are entered via the individual. It’s the church secretary or the admin person who enters the $get_example => 20 kids who want to go on the mission trip / 15 adults going to Myanmar

Imagine how many thousands of churches have HUNDREDS of thousands of kiddos going on mission trips this summer! Do you know how many thousands of mission organizations around the world who would love (FRIGGIN’ LOVE!!!) to have this platform going on?  Both IgnitionDeck Enterprise & GiveWp are going to set me back a few hundred bucks.  Ok, what do I care, right?  But then, on top of that, I’ve got to crack open my php skills and peck out some filters, functions, and make everything work right.  Let’s all pray for patience! Brad’s gonna try to code!

Until that day comes, I’ll keep using the GiveWp plugin for accepting donations on WordPress.

but I hope that day comes sometime soon.

  1. I agree that at this moment in time Give WP is the best plugin I’ve found for charity donations, it does have plugins which allow for PDF receipts which is invaluable and a few other add on options too like MailChimp etc.

    If there ever does come a plugin that does what you’ve defined above I’d be VERY VERY INTERESTED in it as I help a charity that needs that kind of functionality.
