Project Donations for WooCommerce


Collect donations for different projects with a WooCommerce product.

If you are like me, you work on several projects and would like to simply collect donations for them, without bothering creating and configuring a product for each project.

This plugin is mostly intended to be easy to set up. It is mostly usefull if you want to get donations and need or already use WooCommerce platform.


  • any product as Project Donation
  • define project post type (existing or register a new one)
  • assign project to specific products
  • add project field in add to cart block
    • with free type project name (if no defined project post type)
    • or drop down selection list of projects
  • replace price with a flexible Amount field in add to cart block
  • compatible with subscriptions, variable products, and probably any other WooCommerce product type
  • compatible with WooCommerce Name Your Price (although main features are included in Project Donations)
  • localization ready
  • add goals and counterparts to project post edit package
    • display goal progress in add to cart block
    • [goals] and [achievements] shortcodes can be included anywhere


  • global or per-product settings
  • add donation field to cart or checkout page
  • permalink like /donate/projectname/amount
  • customize notification mails


  • Install as usual (download and unzip in wp-content/plugins/ folder, then activate)
  • Set preferences in WooCommerce -> Settings -> Product Projects
    • optionally activate “create project post type” or choose and existing post type to use as projects (if set, a selection menu will be presented to the user instead of a text input box)
    • optionally allow client to choose amount to pay (if you don’t already use another plugin for this feature)
  • Create a product
    • check “Project Donation” option, near product type selection
    • select project in “Project Donation” tab (optional)
    • check “Virtual” option (recommended but optional)
    • set product price to zero (recommended), or to a higher amount (in this case, the donation will be added to the fixed price, but it would be clearer for the customer to set a minimum donation amount instead)

The product page will display “Project”, “Amount” fields and achievement progress bar if linked to a project.
To create use a generic product for donation and get a link for a specific project, add “project” parameter to the URL, like:

You can also specify an amount in the URL, like:

Yes, activate “Add project post type” or choose a post type dedicated to projects in WooCommerce Product Donations settings tab.

Can cutomer choose the purchase amount?

Yes, activate “Customer defined amount” in WooCommerce Product Donations settings tab.

Can I see sales statistics per project?

Yes, with a progress bar. It will appear on products and can be included with a shortcode on any page.
