The best charity donation & fundraising platforms

Finding the right online charity donation platform for your charity can be a daunting process, as you don’t want to make a mistake to commit to the wrong programme.

It’s important to carefully review the specific features of each site, any fees that may be incurred, and the terms for each option. 

Fortunately, we’ve looked at some of the top-rated online fundraising and charity donation sites so you can have a better understanding of which site might be right for your charity.

GoFundMe Donation Platform Logo


GoFundMe is a well-known, respected, and versatile fundraising platform that can be used for various causes, including personal, medical, and charity donation platform. To this extent, there’s always the chance that your charity cause may get lost among some of the other campaigns on there, but it’s a solid choice for raising money for specific charity events or programmes.

JustGiving Charity Donation Logo


JustGiving is a global crowdfunding platform that is typically the first site users think of or go to when they want to raise money for charity. It is focused solely on charitable giving, allowing both individuals and charities to create fundraising pages, and means that your charity will be a good fit among the other groups already raising money there.

Donorbox Charity Donation Logo


Donorbox is a user-friendly donation platform that can be easily integrated into your charity’s current website, supporting recurring donations with extensive customisation options. This makes it ideal for ongoing fundraising, with the only downside being that it is not as well-known as a brand, which may lead to user drop-off.

PayPal Giving Fund Logo

PayPal Giving Fund

This is an extension of PayPal that allows donors to contribute to their favourite charities securely, via the PayPal channel, which has the benefit of being not just a brand that the user is familiar with, but one they most likely already have an account with.

Crowdfunder Logo


While not exclusively for charity donation and fundraising, Crowdfunder focuses on crowdfunding for businesses, projects, and community initiatives. It supports various types of campaigns, including social enterprises and community projects and can easily be adopted for charities.

GiveWP Charity Donation Platform Logo


GiveWP is a WordPress plugin designed specifically for nonprofits to accept online donations easily. It seamlessly integrates with WordPress websites and offers lots of features, like customisable donation forms and reporting. If your charity website is built with WordPress, then this is an obvious one to choose.

Before choosing a platform it’s important to consider the nature of your charity and what your fundraising goals are to determine which platform aligns best with your needs. 

Keep in mind that the popularity and features of charity donation platforms may change over time or at any point, so it’s essential to check for any updates or new platforms that may have emerged to make sure that it’s as easy to donate to your charity as possible.
