Causes I Support

I do a lot of volunteer work for various non-profit organizations.  I am sharing the opportunity for others to help support the causes I believe in with the  "Donate Now' buttons below.

Here is some information about the "Donate Now" buttons.  I have also included some instructions for getting your own "Donate Now" buttons and how to get the buttons added to your website or blog.

"Donate Now" Buttons - How They Work

The "Donate Now" buttons will take you to a new window to process your monetary donation.  I will not see the funds you donate as that is all processed and handled by First Giving.  First Giving processes the donations as well as distributes the collected funds to the individual charities.

If your organization is a charity, the first time that donations are sent will be via a check in the mail.  If you prefer, you may fill out the enclosed form that accompanies the check for all future donations to be sent to your organization via Direct Deposit.

Get Your Own "Donate Now" Buttons

If you would like to have a "Donate Now" button on your website or blog, please go to Donate Now and click on the "Get Your Donate Button."  After you put in your email address and business name (or blog name), remember to type in a message in the box that will show up under the "Donate Now" button once live on your site.  Then click "Next" and a new screen will load.

Here you will need to type in the name of the charity or the charity's EIN number.  If the charity you are searching for is not listed, please contact them and request their EIN number.  Email the charity's name and EIN number to Jonathan Milligan (jonathan.milligan at frontstreampayments .com) and he will get the charity into the database.  Once that happens, you will be able to get the HTML code for that charity's "Donate Now" button.

Adding Your New "Donate Now" Button to Your Website or Blog

Once you have the HTML Code for your "Donate Now" button, add it to your website or blog.  For Blogger, you will need to go into your blog or website's "layout" page and "add a gadget" and then scroll down until you see "Third Party HTML."  Click to add, type in your title, and then copy and paste the code into the box.  Hit save and then view your blog.  The button *should* be there.

If you do not know how to add Third Party HTML Code to your blog or website, please speak to your website developer, website designer, or check the "Help" feature.
