About Donately

We’ve learned the hard way how to fundraise the easy way.

At Donately, we believe that technology should be accessible to all, and that includes fundraising tools. In 2013 when we first launched, we identified an alarming gap in the online donation software market, and set out to create the simplest solution around. That's why we've created a platform that is intuitive, flexible, and affordable. Our software allows organizations to accept donations online, create customizable donation forms, and track donor activity in real-time.

We also know that security is a top priority for nonprofits, which is why we've built our platform to meet the highest security standards. Our software is PCI-compliant and uses encryption to protect sensitive donor data.

But Donately is more than just a fundraising tool. We're a partner to the organizations we serve, offering support and guidance every step of the way. Our team is always available to answer questions, provide technical assistance, and help organizations make the most of our platform.

We're proud to support organizations that are making a difference in the world, and we're committed to helping them achieve their fundraising goals. Join us in creating a better world, one donation at a time.

The values we live by

At Donately, we are driven by a set of core values that guide our every action and decision. These values are what make us who we are and define our culture and approach to business.


We understand that non-profit organizations often operate with limited resources and staff, and that's why we've built our platform as simple and intuitive as possible – accessible to everyone, regardless of their technical expertise or resource.


We recognize that the online fundraising landscape is constantly evolving, and it's our responsibility to stay ahead of the trends and provide our clients with the most up-to-date and effective tools available.


From our friendly and knowledgeable customer support team to our community-focused blog and educational resources, we are committed to empowering our clients and helping them achieve their fundraising goals.


Our clients deserve to know exactly what they're paying for and what they're getting in return, with no hidden fees or long-term contracts.


We believe in celebrating our successes and owning our failures. We take responsibility, whether positive or negative, as it allows us to learn and continuously improve.

Socially Responsible

We believe that businesses have a responsibility to give back to society and support initiatives that align with their values.
