Do I need an SSL?

In simple terms, what exactly is a SSL Certificate and do I need it? I just got a renewal notice for close to $70 for one year. I have a NON-profit site.

Only if $$$ are changing hands.  If your site is a blog with just news going out and in, no need for a certificate.

@GoBrit An SSL Cert is used to encrypt the communication from your servers to your website visitors. Like @charles76 said you only need SSL if your site is accepting payment information or other personal information from your customers. Most likely you do not need SSL for your site.
