The vast majority of nonprofits know they need some form of online fundraising platform to maximize their outreach and bring in as many contributions as possible. The process of engaging with contributors and convincing them to donate on the Web is different than doing so in person or though the use of direct mail. Charitable organizations need to make sure they're utilizing the advantages offered by the Internet, such as offering options for users of both mobile devices and traditional computers to donate, as well as avoiding common pitfalls that plague fundraising websites.
Here are three of the most frequent mistakes nonprofits should avoid in order to make online fundraising as effective as possible:

NYCON members who use First Nonprofit’s programs enjoy enduring savings and improved efficiency. Our association knows that success, because from the beginning, we achieved the same great benefits. Great savings, seamless technology, and responsive service. NYCON highly recommends First Nonprofit’s remarkable unemployment solutions.
We were introduced to First Nonprofit through another housing authority. In our analysis and comparison to what we were paying the State, our first year savings was $5,800 plus. We have been with them since the end of 2008 and I am glad we have been. I consider them an arm of our HR department.
Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.
Throughout our membership in the Unemployment Savings Program, First Nonprofit understood our demands, community dynamics, and the importance of seamless services; that allowed us to serve our constituents better.
