During the holiday season, many people find that giving money to charities makes them feel better about themselves and also helps worthy causes in the process. In some cases, nonprofits use online outlets to help make the donation process as easy as possible.
In one recent case, Pender Perfect Pets, a North Carolina-based dog rescue charity, recently used Pay It Square as a merchant services provider to collect funds from credit car or PayPal users.
The organization, run by Leanne Scalfaro, reported a positive experience with the online payment option.
“It was great,” says Scalfaro. “I don’t have much time to spend collecting money between work and the time I spend taking care of these dogs.” Leanne makes an effort to find dogs that would not normally have a second chance. “I look for the old dogs, the dogs with medical problems. Everyone always adopts the puppies, so I try to find ones that don’t stand a chance in the fierce competition of doggy adoption.”
Other charities have been taking advantage of new payment methods. The New York Times reported that the Salvation Army bell ringers will be accepting credit cards for the first time in its long history.Back To Blog
