Non-Profit Merchant Account Program

Non-profit organizations and charities can now easily accept credit cards and electronic checks securely over the Internet from their members or anonymous donors. Credit Card Processing Services, a leader in setting up merchant accounts since 1996, has put together the finest non-profit merchant account program in the United States. There is no setup cost, the rates are extremely competitive, and the monthly fees are very low. The program is powered by Sage Payment Solutions, best known for their Sage Peachtree Accounting software.

We have found that people are truly charitable but with today’s bustling pace donors are looking for a fast and convenient way to make their donation. Many of them, especially young to middle aged students and professionals do not want to have to sit down and physically write a check and send it in the mail. They appreciate the ability to donate quickly online or even setup regular recurring donations. Our entire program is designed to meet these needs with an extremely easy format for both you and your potential donors.

Types of Non-Profits that our Program is Designed For:

 

Established Charities School Bands Animal Rescue Groups
Churches Ambulance Corps Humane Society
Synagogues Fire Departments Women's Shelters
PTO's Theater and Performing Arts Homeless Shelters
Sports Youth Groups Political Campaigns Food Banks
Disaster Relief Kids Playground Drives Charitable Foundations
