Finally, an affordable, secure way for conservatives to raise money online.
The Internet is a powerful tool for organizing and communicating a political message, and ChargedContribution is the leading the way with the leading fundraising solution for conservatives online.
A Donation Page That Looks Like the Rest of Your Site
ChargedContribution makes contributing online as simple as filling out a form on a web page. When you sign-up for ChargedContribution, we’ll roll-out a customized donation form that includes the colors, text fonts, and graphics headers from your site. That’s different from most online fundraising modules, which dump the user into a generic form that undermines the comfort level of a potential donor. Best of all, we can usually have your site up and running within two business days!
It’s Designed for Political and Issue Campaigns
ChargedContribution is designed to comply with Federal Election and Non-Profit Fundraising laws, and collects all the information that your organization will require. Additionally, we’ve designed ChargedContribution to help you code and track the success of your e-mail solicitations.
Access Your Account Online Anytime
With ChargedContribution, you’ll be given a password that will give you real-time access to your account. You can monitor your activity and download a spreadsheet with the donor information and the amounts you are raising as often as you like.
ChargedContribution is Private and Secure
ChargedContribution uses state-of-the-art security to protect your donors. We use Veri-sign’s Thawte security certificates for encryption, and ChargedContribution is hosted on robust Dell servers at UUNet-Worldcom’s secure data center.
We also implement best practices for data management. We do not store full credit card numbers, and, unlike some of our competitors, we do not sell or rent donor lists. All donor information belongs to you or your organization. End of story.
Also, if you want to participate in full-disclosure, we can integrate limited contribution info to automatically display on your website, similar to the way President Bush disclosed limited contribution info for his contributors on his campaign website (not required).
ChargedContribution can be easily extended to collect additional information for your organization or to let donors join as members or volunteers at they time they contribute. It’s a great way to develop a deeper relationship with someone who is already giving money online. It’s up to you! Because we want to help conservative groups and campaigns better reach and organize grassroots supporters, the cost to set-up the Membership/Volunteer Module is only a one-time fee of $50.
An Affordable Solution
Donations to your organization should help your cause, not fundraising overhead. The Internet is an extremely efficient way to raise money, and ChargedContribution is one of the most affordable solutions available to you. We charge only $50 to set up your donation page, and the cost is only $40 per month plus 7% of the amount you raise to administer your account and pay the credit card companies. That’s it! No hidden fees, no need to have an expensive merchant account, no credit card percentage or per-transaction fees, and you’ll get a check every two weeks. (You will, however, be responsible for any credit card charge-back fees that might result if a donor gives online and then later changes his or her mind.) Best of all, there are no long-term contracts—you are always free to cancel ChargedContribution with just 30 days notice.
