Episode Info: Learn how to combine donations with your LMS website with Devin Walker from GiveWP in this episode of the LMScast podcast hosted by Chris Badgett from LifterLMS. Chris and Devin dive into how you can integrate GiveWP into your website, along with some strategy for incentivizing people to donate. GiveWP is a plugin that allows you to collect donations through your website via multiple payment gateways and to track donors and donations with a detailed reporting system. They integrate with many payment gateways, including Stripe, PayPal, Authorize.Net, and many more. A lot of nonprofits collect payments offline, but by incorporating a donations tool into your website, you can collect donations from around the world. This makes it significantly easier for anyone to donate to your cause. Devin shares some tips for collecting donations and some strategies you can use to get donations through your website. Presenting your story and your cause in the best light through your website is a great way to get donations. If you’re a nonprofit, you can feature your status as such on your site. Keeping donors engaged is also a great way to work towards a recurring donation setup that really helps to scale donations. If you are a nonprofit business, GiveWP has options for giving someone a record of their donation to pass off to their CPA, who can itemize that for your donors on their taxes. GiveWP also provides annual receipts, so if someone has made multiple donations on your site or is involved with a recurring donation, they can download a full report that makes passing off donation data to a CPA a lot easier. GiveWP has some great use cases for course creators. If you’re building another course on your platform, you could offer early course access to the first 100 people who donate $20 or more. If you’re donating proceeds of your course to a specific cause, you could match donations up to $1,000 for example, to incentivize your audience to donate, get access to your course, and also know that their money is going further with you matching their donations.
