Times are a changing, aren’t they?  We don’t go to the post office anymore.   Families with land lines are few and far between.  And when is the last time you saw a 25 year old write a check?  More and more people are paying their bills online.  They are going to want the same flexibility to give online too.

Giving online is a widely accepted option for many non-profits.  Here’s an overview of 5 companies that provide great online giving options.
