Resources for Fundraising Online

This list was begun on August 12, 1999, and has been updated since from information supplied after inquiries on the cyber-accountability and CYBERGIFTS mailing lists and by readers. Some of the entries were provided by the providers of the listed services, others by individuals who have an interest in the subject. Starting May 19, 2000, I have included an Edit Log at the end of this document to make it easier for repeat visitors to track changes.

I've been told lately that several of the listed links are not functioning. Some needed correcting. But when I couldn't get the link to work at all, I disabled it (and entered a note to that effect). Further changes in this listing are inevitable. Additions, corrections and more complete information are all needed to make this catalog as useful as it might be. Please send anything that might be helpful to

Disclaimer: I have not checked all the listed URLs for functionality nor verified the other information in any systemmatic way. This list is offered solely as a public service. No endorsement or other encouragement to rely upon any of these services should be inferred from the presence of an entry in this list; no disparagement should be inferred from the absence of any provider. As the previous paragraph indicates, this catalog is a work in progress. Please help to make it complete and accurate.

Several readers have expressed a wish for some way of classifying all this information. I must say, I share that desire. A fundraising firm, HJC New Media, makes a major contribution in that direction with their comparison shopping tool for many of these listed resources called The Nonprofit Matrix ( It categorizes many of the application service providers (ASPs) and portals in the nonprofit sector in helpful ways. I've listed below some other online resources that take various approaches to tackling that task.

TechSoup (from CompuMentor) published "Inexpensive Donor Databases" by Robert Weiner on April 12, 2005. See The webpage has links to donor-management software costing less than $500 (including several free offerings) and a discussion of how to go about choosing.

Michael Stein and John Kenyon explore the development of online fundraising over a decade in an article in the Winter 2004 issue of Nonprofit Quarterly available at

As online giving becomes more common, people are beginning to think about what donors themselves may want, need or expect in terms of the way the transactions work and their relationships evolve. One interesting discussion of this topic is the "e-Donor Bill of Rights" under development by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (formerly NSFRE); see AFP has other interesting discussions of online aids to philanthropy at NPower/Seattle has a review of donor-management software available online at It covers both desktop systems and those that work through application service providers over the Internet; the page also has links to other relevant materials. The UK's Charities Aid Foundation and some large charities surveyed online donors in 2001 and found a profile that differs in significant ways from observations of people who make donations through other channels; a report of these results is online at

Michael Stein and John Kenyon wrote The eNonprofit: A Guide to ASPs, Internet Services and Online Software for publication by CompassPoint in early 2002. The guide can be purchased in printed form or downloaded without charge from

For the special category of "one-click" donation sites, Kimberly Chapman provides a rating service focused on the interests of donors at The standards described in her criteria are worth considering by anyone who seeks donations online. (I don't try to keep track of all the "one-click" sites; Kimberly Chapman's website offers a comprehensive and updated list with active links.  See also the Click-to-Give note below.)

Idealist published a clear introduction to the whole subject of raising money online by Beth Kanter, the Education Coordinator for Arts Wire.  "Exploring Online Fundraising" mentions many of the sites included in the list below as useful examples for nonprofits thinking about whether, and how, online fundraising might become part of their efforts to find support. Rick Christ posted in April 2000 an 11-page essay reviewing the status of online charitable giving; it is on the web at; he also publishes an occasional newsletter on related topics (see

The Foundation Center offers a discussion of these general topics on line at An earlier essay on the same themes is Eric Mercer's "How Can We Use the Internet for Fundraising," part of the NONPROFIT FAQ at Graham Francis is devoting his MA project at the London (UK) College of Printing to collecting reports of how various approaches to encouraging online philanthropy are actually working. His results can be found at

The Online Fundraising Resources Center is the work of Adam Corson-Finnerty and Laura Blanchard, Department of Development and External Affairs, University of Pennsylvania Library. It contains excerpts from their book, Fundraising and Friend-Raising on the Web, now available from ALA Editions. It also includes teaching materials from classes and presentations. In May 2001, the website included a useful "musing" on "Not.coms" exploring the reasons for slow growth (and disappointed hopes) in the arena of online fundraising. (You can order a copy of the book by calling 1-800-545-2433 or from through this link; a royalty will be paid that will help to support the Internet Nonprofit Center.  Order Fundraising...on the Web now.)</p >

The W. K. Kellogg Foundation maintains an online database of organizations that are active in "ephilanthrophy" -- a term which includes both facilities for fundraising (such as those listed in this file) and, more generally, nonprofit activities online. The current version of this database, and associated discussion, can be found online at Many of the providers listed below are also included in this database, often with additional information.

Michael Stein offered a clear way to distinguish among some of the listed sites, and other helpful comments, in the December 27, 1999, issue of NetAction.  You can read it at
