    I´ve already made some good money with my new donations page for animal care purposes,   I´ve been wanted to do this for some time now and I finally added the donation page with this wonderful site builder three days ago, and for three days it has been good.  For the sake of the animals I hope we do better each day.

    This is not only easy to install and add to the site or any business website, but is also easy to use for people who wants to donate, this is wonderful cause many people who does donations are not computer experts but is more comfortable for them to do it at home.

      It’s also cool that you don’t even have to embed this tool onto your website during the website building process.  You can simply link to it, using our external link feature.  Whatever is easiest for our members, and whatever will result in the most efficacy.

    Having a donation page is vital for some institutions, and also for people who need to raise funds for an individual purpose, like helping someone who is sick.  We did it years ago for a relative who was really sick and we got donations through regular mail and bank account, but it would have really helped if we had access to a website maker like this one.

      You make a lot of great points, thank you.  Without website builders, I can’t imagine the difficulty there must be in not only collecting donations via snail mail, but also in simply marketing your cause.  It’s easy for us to take for granted the advent of the internet and how it affords the opportunities that it does for all of us.  Your comments have really put the concept of non-profit into perspective - especially regarding how much more efficient and prosperous they can now become with the help of sitebuilder software.

    The great thing about this program is you can share on facebook and for a donation page that means a lot of help, is good that this web page maker includes free programs like this one.

      When you build a website with a donation page and then take a step further by marketing with social media, you’re definitely on the right track.  Social media is great for supporting non-profit causes because you can so quickly and easily find people who care and build a following.

      There’s no question that when you create a website and utilize WePay, you’re going to have a fully functional and fast donation system.  This is a very high quality option that anyone should consider when creating a website.

  • Adrian Glass

    I have been meaning to set up a donation website but till I found your site I wasn´t sure I was going to be able to do it because I didn´t have the money to pay a web page maker but I am just on my way to finishing it. The donation page along with the “about us” section in my website are the corner stones and I am extremely happy I am able to build the website all by myself. Thanks for sharing such an amazing tool, bless you!

      That’s really great to hear Adrian.  When we set out to make this free website builder, we always hoped that it would empower entrepreneurs like you to create a website when you otherwise would have not, due to financial reasons or whatever.  You have proven the concept that one can now, quickly and easily, make a web page with a donation option.
