Confused Newbie Here, need to set up a school fundraising page

P: 1
Hi all,
Well, I think that I have bit off more than I can chew. I believe that I would benefit from a private tutor of sorts. but here goes.

I am in charge of my kids middle school "giving fund". I came up with the idea to allow parents to pay via PAYPAL, with a link from our schools (very basic) website.
I have already set up the school paypal account. What I didnt know is that I now need to set up a page on school website where they first, enter there personal information (which would then get routed to my fundraising email address. As soon as that form is filled out, I then want them to be routed to the paypal account.

Can you tell me the basics of what I will need to accomplish this?

I have so far learned about the basic html code. like, <html> <font color=...>
<p> etc.....

any suggestions on where I can go (websites) to get the next step.
I have asked our school website person, however as I said it is so basic, he does not know how to incorporate fields that will accept input and/or how to save all that information etc....

what you want accomplished is very complicated.
itd be easier to have a paypal "donate" link, which you can get on the paypal website, then when they click on that, it sends them to the paypal website, where they log onto their own account, then transfer the money to your account.
is that too complicated?

What you want is actually not too complicated at all!

I'd happily sort out the necessary files for you, since it's for a good cause! Wouldn't take me too long at all! Check your PMs for details!
