Piryx offers a leg-up to groups with fundraising needs. Of course most groups that need money can’t afford to have slick websites and payment gateways. It’s a tough spot to be in since a little technical investment could go a long way toward gathering funds to meet the organization’s needs. Piryx has made that investment. It offers a social media-ready payment gateway specifically designed for non-profits, charities, and community groups. Now the Piryx API can be used by other web entities that want to support these causes.
FirstGiving maintains a searchable database of all US non-profit organizations, and also provides a secure donation pathway allowing one to contribute to anyone of them. It is the meta-charity donation gateway, sure to come as a technological boost to many charities which likely do not have electronic donation processing systems in place on the web. The FirstGiving API is only the 5th in our directory tagged charity, proving it a potentially under-served sector, technology-wise. To be precise, not all non-profit organizations are charitable, and so the user of this system should know the difference when electing to contribute his or her funds, though FirstGiving can process funds for any non-profit.
