Donate Link

The Donate link provides an interface for facilitating donations to nonprofits via Every.org. Compared to the Every.org Donate Button, the donate link provides more configurability over the donation flow on Every.org as well as more control over the experience in your own website or app.

The basic format of a Donate link is as follows:

https://www.every.org/<nonprofit-identifier>#donate

The nonprofit-identifier token can be replaced by either the nonprofit’s primary slug (which you might have if you’re using Nonprofit Search API) or with the nonprofit’s EIN.

Parameters

The link can also be customized with the following URL parameters which control various aspects of the donation experience.

  • amount - specify donation amount.

  • min_value - specify a minimum value for the donation

  • frequency - specify donation frequency. Allowed values are ONCE or MONTHLY

  • email - specify donor's email

  • first_name - specify donor's first name.

  • last_name - specify donor's last name.

  • description - customize the text on the nonprofit's card in the donation modal.

  • no_exit - If specified (with any value), then the background of the donation modal will be hidden.

  • success_url - specify a url to which to redirect the user after they have successfully completed their donation.

  • partner_donation_id - Specify a unique ID that you want to be associated with this donation.

  • require_share_info - If present, requires that the donor share their contact info for the donation.

  • share_info - Set whether sharing info is checked by default.

  • webhook_token - Specify the token associated with your Partner Webhook. Including this parameter will cause a notification to be sent to your webhook for every donation completed via this donate link.

  • theme_color - Customize the primary theme color of the donation modal.

  • method - Specify the allowed donation methods. Allowed values are card, bank, paypal, venmo, pay (mobile payments), crypto, stocks, and daf. Multiple options can be specified using commas: i.e. card,bank,paypal.

Replace www.every.org with staging.every.org to create links that work against our staging environment. In the staging environment you can use the following test credit card credentials to verify functionality without spending real money:

Credit card #: 4242 4242 4242 4242

Expiration date: 04/24

CVC code: 242

Zip code: 42424
