Donately overview

Donately is a online, mobile-optimized fundraising platform designed for nonprofits, organizations and individuals who want to raise money for their chosen cause. Via a simple, easy-to-use interface and the provision of customizable campaign pages & donation forms, Donately facilitates fundraising by streamlining the donation process for donors. The solution was built to be simple not only for donors, but for fundraising teams who don't have a developer on staff. It can still however, scale infinitely thanks to an open API.

Donately fundraising pages are fully customizable and link directly to the fundraiser's website, making donors think that they never left. Customized donation forms can be quickly and easily embedded into an existing website, again with out the need for a developer. Customizable reports provide fundraisers with insight on their campaigns, fundraising metrics and donor habits.

Donation receipts are sent to donors automatically via email and can also be customized or hooked with an existing CMS for a more custom look. Donors can manage their donations, receipts, and more via Donately's donor dashboard.

Perfect for small NGOs

Review Source: Capterra

We've been using Donate.ly for several years now. The 2 major things I like about it are: 1. You pay per donation processing fees, which are reasonable. There is no monthly fee. This makes it possible for small NGOs to accept online donations without it costing us an arm and a leg up front. 2. You can easily embed the donation form into your own website. This allows you to keep the brand of your organization and legitimizes your group because you don't send folks to PayPal or Network for Good or some other third party processor. Other than that the service is ok. I think they are updating some of their online donation tracking tools, automating some email responses, and such, but it isn't the most advanced in those features if that's what you're looking for. For instance, there is no way to automate a message to donors if their donation doesn't go through and they need to update their credit card. The donation email confirmation options are also pretty limited but we've managed to make the confirmation email look ok and work for our purposes. We use Zapier to help us track donations into Google Spreadsheets. We don't use the Fundraising pages really, but those are options and they do have peer to peer functionality. Ultimately, the service is perfect for us. It accepts donations on our website and doesn't have a monthly fee. And the customer service is amazing. I've worked personally with them a few times and they are always so personable and helpful, available via chat right through their site. Definitely recommend.Price and ability to embed on my site.

Hello donate.ly! We have been so much happier with your service now that our congregants can manage their own giving. This is huge! One thing that's been difficult is figuring out the best way to export data from donate.ly, say, to a spread sheet. We've not been able to do this successfully and it makes life more difficult. The user interface for the giver is easy to use and clean, and looks good on our website. We love that there's an option to make a recurring gift and that we can fairly easily change the interface

Great Software for Non Profits

This site allows us to easily collect donations for our non-profit organization. We are in the process of exclusively using this site to collect donations in conjunction with Stripe because it is so much better than any other site we have ever used. One con is that donation form codes have to be completely updated on our website, rather than just updating them through Donately and having them automatically update on our site. Extremely easy for our customers to use! Great customer service!

Coming into using Donately, we didn't really have anything else to compare it to as this is our first go at an online donor database. There are a lot of positives of Doantely (including the automatic receipts, it is so easy to use, our donors seem to like it so far!) and a few things our team has found challenging. (isn't really clear on how donors can log-in on their own and change information, can't easy merge contacts..etc.) But anything we haven't liked, your team has been so willing to try and implement the changes as quick as possible. We LOVE that you all are so easy to get ahold of. Easy to use and easy to communicate!
