Linking your fundraising page behind a "Donate" button on your website

Putting a link to your online fundraising page behind a "Donate" button on your website is a no-brainer for nonprofits. Below you will find directions to do so for the most popular site builder services: WordPress, Wix, and SquareSpace. If you used another service to build your site, you will want to contact that company and/or work with the member on your team who helped set the site up. Putting a link behind your "Donate" button is usually as simple as copy and pasting the URL.


If you're using WordPress, you will need to install a plugin for your site before adding a button. We recommend MaxButtons. If you already have a plugin that provides buttons, use that plugin to create a new button. Make the title "Donate" then paste your URL in to the link field.
