The Donations extension is free to install from our package provider. It lets you raise funds for specific causes (or projects) on a Commerce-powered webshop.
Each cause/project can have a goal, which is either all-time or monthly/yearly to encourage recurring donations. Donations are tracked per project to show a completion percentage, and you can list donors.

Setting up Donations
First, download and install the extension from the modmore.com package provider. Navigate to Commerce > Configuration > Modules and enable the Donations module.
Create a project
You’ll now find the causes under Products > Causes (Projects).
Add a cause with a name, description, and make sure to check it as active. Adding a goal is optional but recommended. Add some suggested amounts, separated by a comma.
Include the project
Where you want the donation box to appear, call the commerce_donations.cause snippet with the &cause property containing the ID of the project. For your first project, that’s probably 1:
There is a default template that will show the project name, description, and a form to add donations.
To show people who donated, and the amount they donated along with their note if any, use the commerce_donations.donations snippet.
Only donations that had the
donor_public checkbox enabled will be listed.
Templating is done through Twig. There are 3 templates, the defaults of which can be found in
core/components/commerce_donations/templates/donations/cause/, which you will want to copy into your own templates folder under
active.twig is used for active projects to accept donations. The
inactive.twig is used to show an inactive project which will still show the donations and percentage of the goal reached, but will not allow new donations.
donations.twig is used for the list of donations.
Some more information on the templates, including available values, can be found here.
