Donations Web App

I am building a complete web application with Laravel, Vue and PostgreSQL.

The donations web application will allow charities to sign up and receive donations via a page that they can customise.

Initially Stripe will be used to accept payments. Sparkpost will be used to deal with transactional emails.

For managing the project I will be using Trello.
