Accepting donations online has become incredibly popular in recent years. It has also become a hugely effective method of raising funds for the Malay Muslim Organisations of Singapore.
Consequently, many MMOs are willing to join hands with Giving Fridays to become registered recipients of our platform. Here are a few reasons why you should also become a recipient of donations via Giving Fridays.
Being able to accept donations online means that you can take payment in any currency at any time, and from anywhere. Receiving your donations through Giving Fridays will help you to reduce administration costs and increase efficiency.
Enabling your donors to give online means that they don’t need to write cheques and fill out forms, or follow up to ensure you received their donation. A secure online transaction is much quicker and simpler. Online giving is often a spontaneous act and attracts donors who feel they do not have the time to give by other means.
When people make donations via Giving Fridays, they can track the progress of their transactions and recipients through their dashboard. Most of our site visitors are specifically looking to donate, thus increasing your chances of receiving donations if you are a registered recipient with us. In other words, being associated with us will increase the likelihood that you will receive donations.
Online giving makes it much easier for donors to make regular donations. Giving Fridays can collect payments automatically at different intervals. We provide the donors with a simple user interface to decide on how much they would like to give, how regularly, and with which payment method.
As society becomes more and more technological, and digital media continue to dominate our communications, online giving is likely to become the preferred method for making donations. Starting to accept donations online (if you’re not already doing so) will help you to increase your funding and better support your work in the future.
