What is a Revenue Form?
Forms are stand-alone web pages or little boxes embedded into a website that allow a person to enter information. They have blank fields where you can enter your name, drop-down boxes that you can select options from, and other special functions.
People often ask, "What is a Revenue Form? How is it different from Donation Form?"
