Have you ever tried to make a gift on a charity’s website, only to become frustrated by having to complete so many required fields that your attempt to donate timed out? Or how about getting through the form, only to hit the cancel button instead of the submit button because they were nearly identical? These are true events, and just a couple of examples of what to avoid when creating your organization’s online donation form.

Join us as we speak with Ira Horowitz, founder of Cornershop Creative. Ira describes how to make your nonprofit’s online donation form a thing of beauty – and revenue! Learn the do’s and don’ts of asking for gifts from your nonprofit’s website.
