Drupal as a fundraising platform: Explore the possibilities

Why would you want to natively fundraise in your Drupal website? It’s all about the UX! The goal is to present your donors with a unified experience when dealing with your organization, and the donation experience is no exception. In fact, the donation experience is probably one of the most important aspects of your site.

We’ll review a custom solution, CiviCRM, and the Springboard distribution and discuss why you might want to take one approach over the other. We’ll tell you what you’ll need to get started and discuss some of the things to look out for when fundraising on the Drupal platform.
