My kids will never write a cheque, and in a few short years neither will the majority of your donor base. While it used to be acceptable to collect money ‘any way possible’ online, the data is telling us that donors want a donation experience that is easy to follow, on brand and connects the donor with the cause. How we accomplish these things without compromising security, CRA compliance and more is not always straightforward. This session will cover the basics of:

Compliance and Law with respect to donation processing and the CRA The 101’s of payment processing terms, security and must knows How you can get the most out of your online donation experience

This session is for:

• New fundraisers who want to learn the ropes of accepting money online

• Experienced fundraisers who are looking for ways to make their program more successful

• Web and online staff responsible for making all the online donation stuff work :-)
