Charitable giving online has become popular in the last several years, as it offers a level of convenience once unattainable for philanthropists. The concept of allowing donations through the Internet opens the doors to accepting contributions from all over the world at any time. Moreover, this allows quick and convenient donating to support a charitable institution, through a simple click of a button and through the use of credit cards. This is leading to a "One Click Cash" revolution for philanthropy.

The perks of charitable giving online 

A lot of websites offer the opportunity to donate any amount to a worthy cause. Most charitable giving sites provide online visitors a good list of charitable institutions that they can donate to. This makes it convenient for donors to contribute to several causes at one time. Charitable giving online also allows donors to track contributions automatically – these one click cash donation tracking systems have revolutionized giving. Donors will also receive charity giving tax reports, which list all donations they have made for the entire year.

Charitable giving via your mobile device

Charitable giving through mobile devices has grown popular over the last few years as well. In fact, as more people use text messaging, many have made donations through their mobile devices. Going mobile is considered an effective channel for nonprofit charitable institutions to acquire new donors, initiate fund raising campaigns and interact with the donors. In return, most donors find the use of mobile devices a convenient, private, immediate and secure way to donate.

How to donate through your mobile device

Using a mobile device to donate is simple. There are codes assigned to a charitable institution which can be texted to a corresponding number. Typically, a $5 or $10 donation is the standard amount that can be donated per text message. This is simply a one-time donation per text message. If a donor wants to donate a large amount, he or she can send the code multiple times. The amount of the donation will be added to the mobile phone bill or simply deducted from the device’s prepaid balance. This opens up a whole new arena for one click cash donations, in that users don’t need to type in credit card numbers or send checks – the donations are directly drafted from billing accounts already established with the mobile provider.

Charitable giving using the Internet and mobile devices is a promising method that offers convenience as well as a safe and secure process for donating.
