GiveWP is the highest rated, most downloaded, and best supported donation plugin for WordPress. Whether you need a simple donate button or a powerful donation platform optimized for online giving, GiveWP is right for you.

Transform the way you accept online donations, starting for free. With GiveWP you can accept gifts for charity or for other purposes, through customizable donation forms. Our donation plugin also allows you to view donor data and fundraising reports, manage donors, and integrate with a wide variety of third-party gateways and services.

✨ GiveWP Features

GiveWP is free and full of many advanced features to suit your needs. Start by choosing one of our donation form templates to create your first fundraising campaign.

Free donor tools also help keep your donors happy. The donor dashboard helps your donor base easily manage their accounts and access their donation history. With our premium add-ons, you can add additional donor tools, like annual receipts.

Powerful Donation Forms

GiveWP has taken inspiration from Gutenberg blocks to create an even better form-building experience. The Visual Donation Form Builder uses sections and blocks to provide a more intuitive way to build and configure your donation forms.

In this builder, you’ll see your design in real time. Watch as your form takes shape as you select custom colors, fields, elements, and more. For those with a flair for customization, you can add Custom CSS directly into the builder.

  • Build custom donation forms in your WordPress admin
  • Customize donation form templates without any code
  • Add goals, multiple giving amounts, custom amounts, terms and conditions and more with just a couple clicks

Never used blocks before? No worries – we’ve got you covered with our guide.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of GiveWP, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click “Add New”.

In the search field type “GiveWP” and click Search Plugins. Once you have found the plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our donation plugin and uploading it to your server via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.


Where can I learn more about how to use GiveWP?

We have extensive documentation on installing and configuring GiveWP on our website. We suggest starting with the GiveWP 101 article.

How can I get support for GiveWP?

We work hard to the best support possible for GiveWP. The Support Forum is used for free community based support. We continually monitor the forum and do our best to ensure everyone gets a response.

Priority support is given to users who have an active license for one of GiveWP’s Add-ons or Pricing Plans.

Yes! We have two different types of studies that highlight nonprofits in different ways.

“Case Studies” are more detailed examples of how an agency implemented GiveWP for a specific purpose for an organization. You can read those here.

How is GiveWP better than a simple PayPal donate button?

PayPal donate buttons take your users off-site, which can cause you to lose some in the process. With GiveWP, your donors can stay on-site and you get the benefit of gathering donor data, viewing free fundraising reports, and creating unlimited donation forms. On the other hand, you can always use GiveWP as a simple customized PayPal donate button if you prefer.

How is GiveWP better than a form plugin for accepting donations through WordPress?

Form plugins are excellent solutions for general intake forms. That said, they most often lack substantial donation reporting features, and donor management options. They also lack a variety of presentation options like GiveWP has for embedding your forms in different places throughout your site. If you want a “Donate Now!” button in the header of your site that opens in a modal, you’ll most often have to do quite a bit of customization to get that working just right with form plugins — but not with GiveWP.

GiveWP works great alongside all the most popular form plugins. Use GiveWP for donations, and Caldera Forms, Ninja Forms, Gravity Forms or other for your general purpose intake forms. They’ll work great alongside each other.

How is GiveWP better than an eCommerce plugin for accepting donations on WordPress?

We built GiveWP specifically to overcome many of the hurdles you have to go through in order to get an eCommerce plugin (like WooCommerce) to be streamlined for donations. You want to treat your donors right. No donor wants to add their donation to a cart and go through several page refreshes just to type in their information. You, as the site admin, don’t want to have to change the word “Products” to “Donations” everywhere, and go through all the hoops of removing taxes and shipping, either.

On top of that, customizing the plugin’s terminology is a daunting task. You never want your users to receive an “invoice” for the donation “product” they “purchased.” Rather, you’d like for them to receive a receipt for the donation they gave.

Use GiveWP for donations, and let your WooCommerce or WP eCommerce plugin or the like handle your products. They work alongside each other just fine. Your donors will be happy, your customers will be happy, and so will you.

Additionally, you can use our Donation Upsells for WooCommerce GiveWP add-on to allow your customers to do a donation upsell in the cart or checkout.

How do I eliminated the 2% fee on Stripe donations?

The 2% fee on Stripe donations only applies to donations taken via our free Stripe integration in GiveWP Core. If you purchase the premium Stripe add-on you will not have any additional fees at all. Additionally, even with the free Stripe plugin, the fees only apply to one-time donations, never to recurring donations.

Read our release announcement for all the details, and if you have further questions feel free to reach out via our contact page.

Unfortunately, having paid for a fully functioning version of GiveWP, the integrated GiftAid add-on is not fit for purpose. There is a known issue that prevents the Gift Aid addresses from being saved even if the donor fills all the fields on the form - we only discovered this when running our first GiftAid submission - only to discover that 40 donors had signed up to GiftAid but we couldn't claim because their address had not been captured. The suggested workaround was to use the billing address instead. This kind of works for GiftAid, but means that you have to make the billing address mandatory for all donors - whereas it's neater just to be able to take credit card details (without billing address) for speedy donations. Finally, the GiftAid submission process needs house name or number and postcode as the minimum collected data - but GiveWP cannot separate House name/number and Street name. Until this functionality is added, we cannot process GiftAid using this plugin.

Was looking for a simple way to make donations via SquareUp, but what good is a free plugin for payments if you can't make payments with the free version. Givewp could make revenue on transaction fee margins but choses to bait people in with promise of free solution to only not delivery and offer a premium to get you were you need to be, accepting payments.

2.5.4: August 7th, 2019

  • New: Stripe compatibility solution – There is now a setting under Donations > Settings > Advanced > Stripe that allows you select which implementation of Stripe you wish to use. If you are using another plugin that uses Stripe to accept payments there is a chance that it may include the Stripe SDK (Software Development Kit) either through Composer or manually initialized. This can cause conflicts with GiveWP because WordPress does not have a dependency management system to prevent conflicts and the other plugins may be using outdated versions compared to GiveWP’s. To help resolve conflicts we have included two options to use Stripe alongside these other plugins. The recommended way is Composer, but if that is not working then we recommend manual initialized. If both options do not work please contact support. #4193
  • Fix: When using Stripe there was a chance your donors would get a receipt from Stripe and from GiveWP. There is now a setting to set whether you want to send Stripe generated receipt emails or use GiveWP’s.

2.0.0: January 17th, 2018

  • New: We have refactored how GiveWP stores data so it’s much more scalable now. This means implementing custom tables and our own database schema.

  • New: The email system within GiveWP has been revamped so it’s easier to toggle on or off and customize the various notifications all via one interface. #1346
  • New: Donors can now have multiple addresses attached to their profiles. This is helpful in the case of donors having a separate billing and mailing address and also to segment other addresses like Gift Aid addresses, etc. #370
