As we approach the launch of the new Christian Shelter website, we have made a number of changes and improvements to the site to make it more user friendly and more efficient for the shelter. One of these changes is in the area of online giving. We have used PayPal for many years, and donors have used it for both onetime and recurring donations.
We have moved our donor data base onto a new platform called Donor Perfect, and will be using their online donation tool going forward. The Donor Perfect online giving tool has three major advantages for the shelter.
First, it is integrated into our donor data base. When a donor uses the tool, their information is automatically saved so that we can efficiently create annual reports that donors can use when they file their tax returns.
Second, any donation given goes directly into the bank without having to be keyed in manually. In the past, this was a time consuming and error prone process.
Finally, the fees for using this on line tool are significantly lower than what we have been paying, thus saving the shelter money.
As a result, we are asking our online donors to please start using the Donor Perfect donation tool provided here on the new web site. Simply click on the donate button provided here and follow the very easy instructions to set up your donation. This can be a onetime donation or can be set up to do recurring donations.
We greatly appreciate your willingness to help the shelter by switching to the Donor Perfect on line giving tool.
