Nonprofit Makes Giving Easier with Online Donations

Customer Success Story |

Integrated Software Leads to Cost Savings and Increased Online Giving

Raising money for good causes is always a challenge. But, it’s even harder when you rely on a third-party vendor to process donations, adding yet another step in the giving process and providing donors with a possible reason for pause. By collecting online donations using PayPal™, the Campaign for Equal Justice (CEJ) required donors to leave its website to make a donation and its fundraising staff to perform redundant, time-consuming data entry.

Fortunately, the nonprofit organization found Abila Fundraising Online™ (AFO), a versatile fundraising and event management tool that helps nonprofits connect with online supporters. Abila Fundraising Online integrates giving campaigns and online donation forms with Abila Fundraising 50™ donor tracking. Additional integration with Sage Payment Solutions allows for CEJ to enable donations directly on its website.

The Campaign for Equal Justice (CEJ) in Oregon has been so pleased after adding AFO and Sage Payment Solutions, as they complete its fundraising suite. CEJ had been loyal users of Abila Fundraising 50 for a decade. The new add-ons have made its software investment even more valuable – and it estimates a savings of 50 percent of the time formerly spent on data entry.

“We’ve had a 276 percent increase in online giving, and raised more money online in December than we did all of last year – thanks to Abila Fundraising Online!”

– Shari Nilsson, Office Manager
