keep searching Google. I forget the name of it, but I set up a church
once on an online donation system. The nice thing about it was that
100% of the donation goes to the charity. PayPal takes something like
2.5% of the transaction, which is a disincentive for donating to a charity. I think did free donations to charities,
but when I was considering them was about 7 years ago and I thought they
gave 100% to the charity. Now they charge like 4% or something.
However, there has to be a service out there that doesn't take a part of
the donate, keep looking.
