What is a Donation Form?

Donation forms allow your donors to easily give to your organization on any device.

You can use CauseVox donation forms a few ways:

  • Directly connected to your CauseVox Fundraising Website (via a crowdfunding campaign, virtual event, or peer to peer fundraising campaign).

  • Hosted as a free-standing donation page through CauseVox, without a Fundraising Website.

  • Embedded on your own organization's website.

Example donation form flow:

Donation Form Features

Functionality on donations forms include: 

  • One-time donations

  • Monthly recurring donations

  • Monthly and annual pledges (donation installments)

  • Automated email donation receipts

  • Donation tiers (suggested levels of giving), with or without descriptions

  • Donation tipping (which allows your donor to cover your transaction fees)

  • Embed options to pop up your donation page on your website

  • Hosted donation forms on CauseVox

  • Apple Pay + Google Pay options

  • Customizable to brand (logo and colors)

  • Email subscription capture

  • Postal address capture

Donation Form Fees

Donation Form fees vary based on the type of fundraising you are doing. See Pricing for more info.

You can have a 0% CauseVox platform fee with the Tip CauseVox option.

Stripe and PayPal processing fees still apply. For nonprofits in the US, this rate should be 2.2% + $0.30 per transaction.

Donation Form vs Donation Page

Your donation form includes a simple free-standing page that the form is embedded on. This is also sometimes referred to as a "hosted donation page". You can link to this donation page to direct people to make donations.

You can update those page settings under Fundraising Website, which include:

  • Link - This is the URL of your donation page that you can link or share.

  • Contact Information - Your contact information will be displayed in the footer of this donation page.
