I would like to set up a Travel Grant program, helping students attend Elm conferences. The next goal would be to expand the grant program to other groups, and the long term goal would be able to afford an event organizer that could help create events like Elm Bridge, summer camps for students, conferences, and generally create opportunities for people to end up with mentors in their own city.
I have PayPal and Stripe accounts set up for Elm Software Foundation, and I am hoping to set up a donation page on
foundation.elm-lang.org just like any other non-profit:
- Pick an amount
- Should it be recurring?
- Type in the necessary info
The larger goal here is for
foundation.elm-lang.org to be a showcase of the grant program, and eventually of any ElmBridge-like event it helps with. Photos and/or stories.
Right now I am struggling with Stripe integration (while also figuring out lawyers and taxes that go along with this) and I figured that there are probably people here with a lot more experience making websites like this! @supermario recommended focusing on Stripe Checkout to get going.
Can you make an open source project that showcases how to do a Donation page with Stripe? If that is easy, can you make a demo of what you’d like to see in the full
I think this project can work in a lot of ways. It could be a good way to explore Elm, it could turn into a helpful blog post, it could turn into an example project, and it could help Elm Software Foundation get its website in order!
