Setup a donation option for non-for profit website

I built a small wordpress website for a small non for profit and they want to be able to accept donation through the website for the various events they organize.

I was wondering if someone can suggest an easy and cheap way of adding something like that.
My first thought was to setup a paypal account for them and just add a pay button to the website but i was wondering if there are better options.

Any input is appreciated!

Maybe something like this?

You are correct that PayPal is probably easiest; otherwise you would have to apply for a merchant account from a payment processor (Moneris, Vantiv/Mercury, etc.) to accept credit cards. Stripe and/or Braintree also are pretty straightforward to set up:

Stripe or Paypal would be the easiest. Really shouldn't be too hard to implement. You can set up Paypal so they don't need a paypal account either which is easier for everyone.
