Default Do I need an SSL certificate for a website that allows people to make donations over

It is technically a foundation, a non profit organization website, which will allow people to make donations for the cause. Is purchasing an SSL certificate for this site a good idea?
If i have to purchase then which one is better for such a site?

Yes, if you use a cart system to handle the donations on your site then you need a SSL cert Godaddy I think gives discounts for NPOs, unless you use paypal or the like.

It's preferable to secure your connection when we are talking about money transactions

You should yes, I mean you could use a self signed one, which is secure, but best you buy a trusted Cert.
