As a provider of web design and dev services for charities, A.F.G understands the importance of creating effective donation pages on charity websites. Here are some best practices for charity website donation pages that organisations should consider:
Make it easy to find: The donation page should be prominently displayed and easy to find on the website, this way visitors can quickly make a donation if they choose to.
Include a clear call-to-action (CTA): Use clear and action-oriented language to encourage visitors to make a donation, such as “Donate now or “Help us make a difference”
Provide multiple options: Offer a variety of donation options such as one-time donations, recurring donations, and different payment methods. This will make it easy for donors to choose the option that works best for them.
Use trust badges: Include trust badges, such as SSL certification, to assur donors that their personal information and payments are secure.
Transparency: Be transparent about how donations are used and the impact of donations. Include a breakdown of where the funds will go and what it will be used for.
Use images and videos: Use images and videos to help communicate the charitys mission and values and the impact of the donations.
Show progress: Show the progress of the fundraising goal, this way the visitors can see how their contributions are making a difference.
Make easy to share: Allow visitors to share the donation page on social media to help reach more potential donors and raise awareness about the cause.
Follow up: Followup with donors to thank them for their contrbution, and to provide updates on the impact of their donation.
Test and optimise: Test and optimise the donation page to see what works best and make improvements over time.
