Context

Today there are more ways than ever to raise money. Оnline giving has already affected non-profits and the services they provide.

When You Wish Ltd. — a group of enthusiasts with a substantial experience in charity fund raising — was inspired to leverage modern technology to give everyone an opportunity to fast and easily setup a fundraising project and reach a wide audience. The customer was choosing from a shortlist of mature software developers and opted for Itransition due to the demonstrated expertise, experience and in-depth understanding of social communication on the web.

Any visitor is welcome to register and create a personal profile, launch a fundraising campaign to collect donations, or browse projects and pledge to fundraising. A fundraiser can easily reach the audience: there are plenty of ways to attract the attention of the potentially interested people.

Secure Payment System

Itransition managed to avoid complicated ways of making a donation, and created a clear and user-friendly website, baked up with top-of-the-line security. Payment receipts and accounting system, which is definitely one of the solution’s kernel functionality, is seamlessly integrated with PayPal and meets all the security requirements.
