BEST PRACTICE: Ask for Donations at Time of Purchase
It’s a basic tenet of fundraising that you’ll get more donations if you ask for them! But, for many organizations, the web site is the primary point of contact with their constituents, and it’s easy for visitors to ignore a Donate Now button, even if it appears on every page.
Doubleknot helps organizations increase donation rates with customized checkout donation requests. A checkout donation request places a donation request exactly where you want it—at the beginning of the checkout process, when your visitors have already decided to make a purchase at your site.
With a checkout donation request, every customer purchase—whether it’s for admission tickets, event or program registration, or merchandise—becomes an opportunity to raise awareness about your mission and ask for additional donations to support your cause.
