5 Tips to Get Donations on Nonprofit and Charity Websites

Summary: To encourage donations, focus on answering potential-donors’ top questions and streamlining the donation process.

Our usability tests of nonprofit and charity websites show that people have high expectations of nonprofit and charity websites — which some sites don’t meet. Users have specific questions. and if sites do not address these questions, they have little desire or motivation to find the answers. Once users decide to donate, a clear call to action and a simplified donation process keeps them on the right track.

To get donations, follow these 5 guidelines:

1. Clearly Explain What the Organization Does

Our studies tell us that the most important pieces of information that people need to know about a charity or nonprofit before they make a donation are the type of work that the organization does and how that work is done .

In our studies, we found that many sites did not clearly communicate this vital information or made it too hard for users to access. On average, it took users about 6 minutes to locate information about the organization’s purpose, which was far too long. A task time of 1 minute for this crucial task would be a more reasonable goal, showing that current nonprofit sites are 500% too slow to use.

After much misery and excruciating time spent locating the answers, in most cases, the organizational information was vague and convoluted.

Websites that provided this information in a clear, concise, and easy-to-understand manner had an advantage over those that had ambiguous goals and objectives. The organizations that received donations simply described what they did and how they did it in a succinct and easy to understand manner. This information was enough to convince people—if they agreed with their mission—to make a donation.

2. Disclose How Donations are Used

The second most important detail that users needed to know about an organization before donating was how their contribution would be used. The organizations that provided this information on their sites helped potential donors understand where their money would go.

Some sites provided this information, but others did not. Regardless, users hunted for it, and those who found it were pleased that the organization disclosed the information. Those who couldn’t find the information were aggravated and thought the organization was inefficient or trying to bury those details.

Even if the percentage that went to programs and initiatives was lower than users had hoped, they were still pleased to see the information and felt confident that the organization wasn’t hiding anything from them.

3. Display Third Party Endorsements

An organization’s reputation and legitimacy is another important piece of information users needed to know before making a donation. In our study, people often used the following information to decide whether or not a nonprofit or charity was worthy of their donation:

  • watchdog ratings
  • high profile endorsements
  • testimonials
  • name recognition
  • number of years in operation

Users also relied on recommendations from friends and family members. (This is an instance of the social proof principle. which is when testimonials and friends’ recommendations encourage users to act. This principle is further discussed in our Credibility and Persuasion course .)

In particular, endorsements or high ratings from watchdog organizations, such as Charity Navigator, Independent Charities of America, and the American Institute of Philanthropy, communicated to users that the organization was credible and reliable .

Users compiled third party endorsements with other facts gathered from the website to decide whether or not to donate. If a nonprofit or charity has this type of information, it’s important to tout it, because users want to know if an organization is credible before donating to it.

4. Provide a Noticeable and Clear Link to Donate

When users were ready to make a donation, they wanted to get to the donation process quickly and easily. Unfortunately, many users spent too much time looking for a way to donate when they were ready to do it. In fact, about 25% of the homepages included in our study failed to provide a Donate call to action .

The donation call to action should be straightforward and noticeable on every page of the website. It’s best to use clear, concise words, especially when asking for monetary donations. The phrases Donate and Donate Now were immediately understood by users in our study.

The “I Have A Dream” Foundation had a link to donate on the homepage, but the call to action was Contribute. Some users questioned what the word “contribute” meant. Most assumed it was a monetary donation, but it was also confused with donations of time or goods.

5. Streamline the Donation Process

In our studies, the donation process took, on average, 4 minutes and 15 seconds (from clicking the Donate call to action until the confirmation page displayed). In our e-commerce study. the checkout process took, on average, 3 minutes and 58 seconds (from clicking the Checkout call to action until the confirmation page displayed).

Creating a seamless donation process will increase the odds of getting users to complete the process. Sites in our study had varying approaches to the donation process. Some processes had two steps—a form and a confirmation page—and others were broken down into smaller, incremental steps. Users didn’t prefer one process over another. As long as the information being requested was presented in a clear and easy-to-understand manner, users completed the transactions successfully.

Although the donation process requires less information than a typical e-commerce checkout process. it took longer for users to complete, on average. The longer task time, on average, was likely caused by two factors:

  • More familiarity with the e-commerce checkout process: Most users in our studies made more online purchases than online donations per year, so they were more familiar with the checkout process and knew what to expect. For this reason, it’s imperative that nonprofits and charities strive to mimic the checkout process within the donation process on their sites.
  • Extra steps required in the donation process: Some donation processes had fields or actions, such as making a donation in someone’s honor or setting up recurring donations, which required more typing and decision making than the typical e-commerce checkout and thus increased the overall interaction cost for the form.

An Easy-To-Use Website and a Fast Donation Process Can Increase Donations

Organizations that depend on donations should not underestimate the impact of their website. Providing straightforward details about what work the organization does, how it uses donations, and who endorses them can convince people to donate. For motivated donors, a clear and easy-to-find Donate call to action and a streamlined donation process should be provided.

17 comments on Canada s top-rated charities

I have to wonder at this rating? How can a food bank possibly afford to pay a top salary of $1.46 Million? To cover just this ONE SALARY with the listed efficiency rating of .56/$100 they have to be raising MANY billions of dollars. Or are my calculations wrong? I tried to go to the linked web address for this charity but access is Forbidden. Do salaries not figure in costs? Possibly an outside person or group underwrites the salaries?

Lisa on November 21, 2014 at 10:54 am

Lisa, the top salary is $146,057 and is one of the lowest on the list of 100 charities. The Calgary Food Bank website host was hit with a virus/security issue and the site is temporarily down, we should have a temporary site back up with a new host today.

Clearly, there is no question. One solhud put their money into government-registered accounts despite such things as the. for one. Before you reach the limit, you solhud take advantage of all it has to offer (tax savings, government guarantee). Sadly only 3% of Canadians actually meet this limit.

This was just the article I was lnooikg for!I actually WANT to pay dividend tax as I am in a low tax bracket ( 37K; my wife is not, however) so i have all of our non-registered money in my name.I hope to make substantially more in one or two years but because I m in such a low bracket to me it makes sense to accumulate RRSP room and have these money making dividends where I ll pay close to no taxes on them due to my low income level. I think that considering my low tax bracket and the favourable dividend tax rate that it is almost as good as a TFSA.Thank you for the help.

Minh on August 12, 2015 at 5:16 pm

I m not at all surprised to see Chalice Canada in the Top Charities list. For years, I gave to World Vision, but was annoyed by the amount they spent on fundraising. I found Chalice Canada is doing the same work more efficiently. I have to be careful with my money, and I expect the charities I give to will do the same.
My favourite charity that deserves recognition is Canadian Food for Children ( not to be confused with Canadian Feed the Children). They are a lean operation, with, as far as I know, no paid staff. Unfortunately, I believe Money Sense s methodology would exclude them. Unlike most charities, they don t raise money primarily, but gifts in kind. They solve two problems. By accepting donations of food, clothing, household goods, furniture, building material, etc. they divert a lot of what we would discard as waste. They fill ship containers with donated goods destined for a different part of the world each day, At the same time, they are helping the poor of the world with needed goods, which might not be available to them if they were only sent the funds. My guess is that a fair amount of the monetary donations go to food staples and shipping costs. Worthy charity in my book.

Delighted to see Red Cross has been on this list consistently. As part of the world s largest humanitarian organization and founded in 1859 in Switzerland, it is impressive that the Red Cross can assist every resident in Canada if they are affected by local or a personal disaster, and that they are also able to assist people around the world on a moment s notice. Very impressive.
It also helps so many people through First Aid, CPR, Swimming, Anti-Violence and Anti-Bullying courses. Thank you Red Cross!

Donald Trump used money donated for charity to buy himself a Tim Tebow-signed football

#charity foundations


Donald Trump used money donated for charity to buy himself a Tim Tebow-signed football helmet

Did Donald Trump violate IRS rules, by using a charity’s money to buy himself a signed football helmet?

Four years ago, at a charity fundraiser in Palm Beach, Donald Trump got into a bidding war at the evening’s live auction. The items up for sale: A Denver Broncos helmet, autographed by then-star quarterback Tim Tebow, and a Tebow jersey.

Trump won, eventually, with a bid of $12,000. Afterward, he posed with the helmet. His purchase made gossip-column news: a flourish of generosity, by a mogul with money to burn. “The Donald giveth, and The Donald payeth,” wrote the Palm Beach Daily News. “Blessed be the name of The Donald.”

But Trump didn’t actually pay with his own money.

Instead, the Susan G. Komen organization — the breast-cancer nonprofit that hosted the party — got a $12,000 payment from another nonprofit. the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

Trump himself sent no money. (In fact, a Komen spokeswoman said, Trump has never given a personal gift of cash to the Komen organization.) He paid the bill with money from a charity he founded in 1987, but which is largely stocked with other people’s money. Trump is the foundation’s president. But, at the time of the auction, Trump had given none of his own money to the foundation for three years running.

Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold is investigating how much Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has given to charity over the past seven years. Here’s what he found. (Sarah Parnass/The Washington Post)

The Washington Post discovered this unusual payment — a charity apparently buying sports memorabilia for a super-wealthy man — this week, during a review of Trump’s charitable giving.

Afterward, three experts on tax law questioned whether Trump had violated IRS rules against “self-dealing” — which are designed to keep nonprofit officials from using their charities to help themselves.

Those rules ban the “furnishing of goods” by private foundations — like Trump’s — to their own officers. If the rule is broken, the person who breaks it must notify the IRS and may have to pay a tax penalty. There could also be penalties for signing a tax return that failed to mention the violation. In 2012, the tax return for Trump’s foundation checked the boxes for “no,” it did not break the self-dealing rule.

The answer may depend on what became of the helmet and jersey.

If they are still in Trump’s possession — perhaps on display at one of his homes or properties — that might be deemed improper, if the IRS ever looks.

“That would be a classic violation of the prohibition on a charity being operated for the private inurement (benefit) of the charity’s creator,” Brett G. Kappel. an expert on tax-exempt organizations at the Akerman law firm in Washington, wrote in an email. The Trump Foundation does not appear to have offices of its own. It is headquartered at Trump’s business offices in New York and has no full-time staff.

The best case for Trump, experts said, would be if he had given the helmet and jersey away to another charity, perhaps to be auctioned off at another fundraiser.

“If. the foundation paid for it, and they owned the helmet, and the helmet was given to someone as a charitable activity,” that would be enough, said John Edie, now retired, who was the longtime general counsel at the Council on Foundations.

Edie said Trump could not get off the hook by simply giving the memorabilia to a friend.

“Spending $12,000 for a helmet and then giving it to a golfing buddy is not” charity, Edie said.

So what happened to the the helmet and jersey? Where are they today?

Trump’s campaign did not respond to requests for comment. In a Wall Street Journal video of Trump’s business office in New York last year, he showed off a table of sports helmets — but the Tebow helmet did not appear to be among them.

One possible reason: The Tebow gear has lost some of its cachet. In hindsight, Trump’s famous eye for a good deal seems to have deserted him on the night of the auction. As it turned out, he was buying Tebow gear close to its peak price.

That very night, Tebow’s Broncos were demolished by the New England Patriots in the NFL playoffs. The Broncos traded Tebow, and he played only one more full season.

The same kind of autographed helmet and jersey that Trump bought for $12,000 are now available for about $415, total, online.

That’s the number of Americans who want a major third party. It spiked in 2013 and has remained steady, between 57 percent and 60 percent, ever since. It should be a very good time for the likes of Gary Johnson and Jill Stein, who are running as the libertarian and Green Party nominees, respectively. But neither is threatening to make the debate stage — which would require 15 percent in the polls — and both have seen their support drop off in recent weeks.

People really want third-party candidates. Just not these ones.

The race in key battleground states

Trump has a lead of less than one point here, according to RealClearPolitics’ average. North Carolina, which has 15 electoral votes, has historically been favorable turf for Republicans in presidential races. President Obama narrowly won here in 2008 but lost by a close margin to GOP nominee Mitt Romney in 2012.

Clinton has a one-point lead here, the swingiest of swing states. Florida has 29 electoral votes at stake.

Trump is up by 2 points here, where 18 electoral votes are up for grabs. Clinton’s big lead after the conventions has gone away in this state.

Trump has a less than one-point lead here, but a post-debate poll from Suffolk University gave Clinton a six-point lead. That’s her biggest lead in the state of any survey so far this cycle.

Clinton Foundation Put On Charity Watch List #donate #car #without #title

#charity watch


Clinton Foundation Put On Charity Watch List Along With Al Sharpton s Shady Nonprofit

He was 82. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid

The Clinton Foundation has joined Rev. Al Sharpton s National Action Network on a list of naughty nonprofits maintained by Charity Navigator, a prominent charity monitor.

The Clinton Foundation was put on Charity Navigator s watch list last month, The New York Post reported on Sunday .

The foundation has come under intense scrutiny of late amid revelations it received millions of dollars in donations from foreign governments while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state. Money also flowed to the foundation from companies and businessmen who benefited from their relationship to the Clintons.

Furthermore, analysis of the foundation s tax forms showed it spends a relatively small percentage of its income on charitable activity.

Charity Navigator created a watch list last year to include any charity that does not meet our criteria. Organizations are placed on the list when Charity Navigator becomes aware of conduct that may affect a donor s decision to support that charity.

Of the Clinton Foundation, Charity Navigator wrote. We had previously evaluated this organization, but have since determined that this charity s atypical business model can not be accurately captured in our current rating methodology, while noting our removal of The Clinton Foundation from our site is neither a condemnation nor an endorsement of this charity.

Charity Navigator s list includes 23 organizations in total. Besides the Clinton Foundation and Sharpton s National Action Network, other high-profile organizations on the list include the Red Cross and the Sierra Club.

National Action Network s listing is due to the organization s failure to pay payroll taxes for its employees. The New York Times reported in November that Sharpton and his group have a total of $4.5 million in pending state and federal tax liens.

The Red Cross is included on the watch list based on reports that it spends too little of its revenue on programs to further its mission. The Sierra Club is on the list because it allegedly failed to get permission to publish the names of several businesses in North Carolina used in a report about Duke Energy.

In its justification for placing the Clinton Foundation on its watch list, Charity Navigator cited numerous recent articles concerning donations from foreign governments.

It cited a Feb. 19, Wall Street Journal report claiming at least 60 companies that lobbied the State Department during [Hillary Clinton s] tenure donated a total of more than $26 million to the Clinton Foundation.

Charity Navigator also noted that on Feb. 26, Politico reported the Clinton Foundation failed to inform the State Department of a $500,000 donation it received from the Algerian government.

The foundation has received numerous donations from foreign governments, including many in the Middle East. The governments of Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have sent millions to the charity.

While Charity Navigator focused only on the Clinton Foundation s donors, it could plausibly add the organization s low payout rate to its watch list rationale.

Last month, the website The Federalist looked at the Clinton Foundation s IRS filings for the period between 2008 and 2012. According to its analysis, only 15 percent of the $500 million raised during that span when towards grants for other organizations.

Nearly $110 million was paid out in the form of salaries and benefits while $25 million went towards travel expenses. Almost 60 percent of the organization s disclosed revenue or $290 million was listed under the category of other expenses.

That pattern continued into 2013, The Post notes. Of the $140 million in money the Clinton Foundation received in 2013, only $9 million was given out as charity to other groups.

In general, groups that monitor charities activities say a good charity spends at least 75 percent of its income on causes related to its core mission.

The Clintons operation of their family charity has raised questions about transparency, potential conflicts of interest and of as Mitt Romney characterized it earlier this week possible bribery.

One government watchdog appeared to agree with the latter observation.

It seems like the Clinton Foundation operates as a slush fund for the Clintons, Bill Allison, a senior fellow at the government watchdog Sunlight Foundation, told The Post.

On Sunday, the Clinton Foundation released a statement admitting we made mistakes. The Foundation said earlier this week that it plans to refile several years of tax returns because it failed to disclose all of its donations. (RELATED: Clinton Foundation Fesses Up: We Made Mistakes )

According to Charity Navigator, it monitors groups for six months until it determines issues identified by the watch list are resolved.
