Running a nonprofit is no small feat. You’re on a mission to make the world a better place, but you only have a shoestring budget to make it happen. Whether you’re saving animals, teaching children, feeding the homeless, or helping push forward another worthy cause, it takes money to put your vision into motion. 

No matter your nonprofit’s location or focus, there are lots of people out there willing to donate to your cause. But if your nonprofit doesn’t accept online payments, your pool of donors will go down drastically. If you’re still only accepting cash and checks, or you’re wasting time manually writing down credit card numbers, it’s time to look for a better way to do business. 

Accepting online payments and donations can seem like an impossible project to accomplish. It can be difficult to find the right online payment processor for your nonprofit. Many take a lot of money, time, and technical knowledge to get up and running. But not Formstack’s newest payment integration, ProPay
