Looking for better abillity to accept donations from site

I work for a .org and we currently have a pay-pal donate on our home page. I'm thinking of doing something a little more enticing. like maybe "The Power of One" with $1 donations (better then none)
Or a donate button to donate one meal with the donation = to the cost of one of our meals(4.35 I think)but these are such a low amounts pay pal charges i think $.30 a transaction +% and that out of $1 wouldn't leave much left. anyone know of a better way(and maybe something that would be easier for the user.) also a way to make it look more profesional would be nice.... i don't know paypal just doesn't do it.

You are going to run into that transaction fee which is a killer for micro-payments as you can see.

What country are you in?

If you think you might be doing more than $1,000 a month, a merchant account might be OK and then you might consider bundling some products together. There is always a chance that you might be able to get the transaction rate to about $.20-$.25

There are some companies that you can call. I think Kintera is an excellent company that can set up a donation page for nonprofit organizations.
