Each year Nonprofit Tech for Good features a new set of niche online fundraising tools that are timely and relevant for the year to come. From accepting stock donations online to using TikTok for fundraising, these tools represent current trends in fundraising that will continue to mature throughout 2022.
1. DonateStock :: donatestock.com
DonateStock allows US-based nonprofits to easily claim and create a branded page that enables donors to give stock donations online to that nonprofit.
2. GivePanel :: givepanel.com
GivePanel empowers nonprofits to better use Facebook Fundraising Tools by providing an easy way to thank all fundraisers, collect contact details, and track results.
3. GolfStatus.org :: golfstatus.org
Golf fundraisers have emerged during the pandemic to be a reliable, Covid-19 friendly fundraiser. GolfStatus.org enables nonprofits to easily accept registrations for tournaments, feature sponsors, and utilize online leaderboards.
4. Ink to the People :: inktothepeople.com
Ink to the People enables nonprofits to easily create t-shirt fundraisers. The service handles payment processing, inventory, and shipping. In 2023, we’ll likely see a similar service for t-shirts in the Metaverse.
5. OpenSea :: opensea.io
OpenSea is the world’s first and largest NFT marketplace, yet very few nonprofits are creating and selling their own NFTs on OpenSea (see Carver Society as an example). That said, next year’s list will likely feature a yet-to-be-launched marketplace solely for nonprofits and NFT fundraisers.
6. RoundUp App :: roundupapp.com
The RoundUp App allows donors to easily round up their credit card purchases to donate monthly to any nonprofit in the United States. Donors can also set a minimum amount to give monthly to their favorite nonprofits.
7. Tapkat :: tapkat.com
Tapkat enables nonprofits to create online fundraising sweepstakes. Donors buy virtual tickets to be entered to win prizes offered by nonprofits. For more information, see Tapkat’s 10 Best Practices for launching an online sweepstakes.
8. TikTok Donations :: info.tiltify.com
Currently, less than 100 organizations can accept donations via TikTok. If TikTok wants to significantly elevate its TikTok for Good program in 2022, then the company should work with Tiltify and GuideStar to expand donation capability to all 1.6 million nonprofits in the United States. After that, they can partner with other verification services to expand globally.
