NGO Connect Feature: Online Donation Forms and Event Registration

In addition to the top five features of NGO Connect, Heller Consulting outlines five important features to take advantage of in their white paper, NGO Connect – Maximizing its Potential for You. So far, we have covered Personal Attention and Event Management. In this post, we will discuss the third NGO Connect feature from this series: Online Donation Forms and Event Registration.

NGO Connect recently unveiled two built-in online tools for donations and events. The first is the Connect package, which provides an online form builder tool that can accept donations or be used for non-transaction surveys. The second is an online form builder tool for event registrations, which is built into the Events package mentioned above.

The introduction of both tools makes it possible to have online donations and event registrations flow directly into the system in real time. In addition to straight donations, Connect forms can accommodate tribute gifts and membership gifts for organizations who track memberships.

Each package has a separate form builder. Both tools enable simple forms to be created or updated with minimal technical knowledge. HTML/CSS can be used for organizations with custom design needs. Nonprofits should be ready to identify at least a few simple donation forms that they want to have go live with NGO Connect. This part of the implementation may work best in phases, as the organization gradually transitions from their legacy online giving and event registration tools to the NGO Connect native functionality.
