Giving to a worthy cause has got to be one of the most rewarding acts that a person can do. Even just a few pennies really can make a different. The willingness of people to give to charitable causes is commendable and we see year on year the generosity of the public with televised charity events including Comic Relief.
Donating to charities not only helps the charity and its greater cause but, just as importantly, offers that feel good factor to individual in the sense of ‘doing a good deed’. Being able to make people feel good in themselves is a definite benefit of charity donations, surely making people want to give more. The donation process should never take away from this.
Donation Processing Made Easier
Long gone are the days of street donations with people standing, in the all too often freezing cold, shaking their coin collectors in the hope that the public will spare them their last bits of change in exchange for a smile – or if you were really lucky a sticker! As times have changed and technology has progressed, the donation process has also moved with the time – making it that much easier for people to donate, even in the comfort of their own home. The donation process now offers more insightful ways to give. From the traditional cash deposits to text in donations – the possibilities are now extensive. The public can now opt for online donations using their credit/debit card or can even call charity numbers and have a donation added to their monthly telephone bill.
With all of these options and the added apprehension of secure giving, especially with online sites, it is very important that charitable organisation have excellent donation processing in place. This can give peace of mind to the donator and could mean the difference between another donation and lost support from the public.
Charity organisations can also add value to donations by sending thank you letters, offering gift aid and generally making the donation process that much easier. This can heighten the feel good factor that the donator gets when making a donation. Luckily, there are now companies which specialise in donation processing, reducing the hassle for charity organisation – giving them more time to concentrate on the true values of the charity.
