Free software for nonprofit fundraising and crowdfunding

Eric Schultz

For nonprofits, accepting credit card donations has become easier and easier, whether through a donation processing company or directly through a payment network like Stripe. Sadly, though, until now, nonprofits have had limited options: either accepting some non-free Javascript for an elegant donation experience with minimal PCI compliance rules, or requiring complex integrations or PCI compliance burdens on the backend.

Eric Schultz, Lead Developer with CommitChange, and core contributor to the Houdini Project, the free donation processing and donation management system running CommitChange, highlights how nonprofits can use free software to improve donor experience without compromising their mission. Additionally, Eric will discuss the history of Houdini, how it can be used for crowdfunding, why it was licensed under the AGPL with a few unique additional permissions, and how nonprofits and their supporters can work together to improve fundraising software to improve people's lives.
