It is an online donation form that goes on your web site and allows donors to make credit card gifts to you via a secure server. Visa and MasterCard donations are processed free of charge and American Express donations are assessed a low transaction fee of 2.25%. It's a great service if you don't have your own on-line credit card processing system. ( Click here for complete information. )
  • Vehicle Donations: This is an optional service available to our members. Through a partnership with VDAC (Vehicle Donations to Any Charity), we offer you a zero liability vehicle donation system. You can accept vehicles from anywhere in the country. We handle the towing, issue a charitable receipt to the donor, auction the vehicle, handle the transfer of title, etc. All you have to do is receive the money. Donations can be accepted online, or via a toll free number.
