WordPress now allows the users to collect donation through the website by including a non-profit donation form.
Creating the form is simple and hassle-free.
In this blog, we discuss the simple donation forms to help you jumpstart fundraising for the non-profit endeavours
Let’s see how it is done.
Step 1: Create the Form

Now go to WPFroms and then Add New to create a new form.
Here, you have to name your form and choose the donation form template.
The default donation form will appear with the basic fields like name, email, donation amount and comment or message.
You can add additional fields to your form by dragging them from the list on the left-hand side into the form.
When you complete the edits, click on the Save button to save the changes.

You can configure the type of messages the visitor gets regarding the next steps once he submits the form.
