Magento Fundraising for charities


Why donate with your Magento store?


Now that conscious consumers are the largest demographic in retail, it is more important than ever for a business to have a strong mission and values.


Customers choose to purchase from brands that align with their personal values, so its important for a business to show that they care. By supporting a charity or an environmental cause businesses can do just that.

Why use a Magento Donation Extension?

As of Q4 2022, there are over 150,000 Magento 1 and nearly 100,000 Magento 2 stores active. This accounts for nearly 1% of all online stores making Magento Modules and extensions a very impactful way to fundraise.


While aligning with a charitable organisation is an excellent way to show your values - the process of creating such a partnership is not easy. Some of the steps in the activation process include:

  • Finding a cause that aligns with your company/customer values

  • Creating mutually beneficial collaboration terms

  • Activating your giving

  • Managing donations and related admin

The set-up process on its own can take months, not to mention the admin associated with the giving, but thankfully there are Magento Donation Modules and extensions that exist to make this process far more efficient saving you time and money:


Magento charity extensions can:

  • Save development costs

  • Automate partnership agreements

  • Automate payouts/admin


How to choose the best extension for your business?


With multiple Magento Donation Modules and extensions in the Magento Marketplace, how can you determine which is the best fit for your Magento 2 store? There are a few things to consider:

  • Product features

  • Pricing

  • Does the extension have automated partnerships?
