Can I embed a donation form widget directly into my website?

Yes. In addition to adding links to your donation appeal page on your website, your web designer can create a small donation widget where people can select their donation amount on your web page and be taken to the secure GiftTool page to complete their donation, with the amount already entered into the form.

As you can see in this example:

... this nonprofit has added buttons with different donation amounts, along with an input box should the donor prefer a different amount or currency. When a donor completes this small form choosing whether to make a general donation or sponsor a child, it takes the donor to the correct GiftTool donation appeal form with the requested amount already entered.

In this second example:

... this nonprofit has added an input box for the donation amount, along with radio buttons for the choice of a onetime or monthly option. When a donor completes this small form, it takes the donor to the GiftTool donation appeal form with the requested amount and frequency already entered.

You can even…

  • Have your web designer add additional fields to collect data on your web page (such as name, address, etc) and the information will be auto-populated in the donation appeal page for their review before submitting their credit card information.
  • Stream people to different donation appeal forms, if you want to collect different information or display different messages depending on the amount selected.
