Changing Sponsored Personal Donation Amounts

by LA - Customer Success Manager 16 May 2017

Dollar handles can be changed for all donation types (sponsored donations, personal donations,  in memory, one off and regular giving).

Sponsored and Personal Donations

To edit Sponsored Donations and Personal Donatios, head to Platform Setup -> Donation Defaults. Your view will default to Sponsored Donations and here‘s where you build up your dollar handles specific to a sponsored donation. You can create as many dollar handles as you wish (we’d recommend limiting this to a max of 6 – more likely 4 ). Click the edit icon on the right of each dollar handle to change the amount, description and description/impact text. If uploading images to be used for each dollar handles, they should be a consistent size, JPG format and square.

You can drag and drop your dollar handles to order as you wish. And you can also change the Sponsored and Personal Donation amounts for desktop and mobile if needed.

Here’s how these sponsored donations appear on the default fundraiser profile layout:

One off, in memory and regular giving

One off, in memory and regular giving donations are handled in your Pages module. You can create as many donation pages as you need for your seasonal appeals, always-on donation pages and more.

Head to pages, add a New Page and then select te Donation Template. Continue on as you normally would with seting up your your page with all the elements and styling youd like (the header image, SEO metadata, the content itself which can appear above the donation form, etc).

As you’re using a Donation Template, you’ll now see the Donation Settings option in your middle navigation. Click this and you’ll see all the options within a donation page. You can turn on One Off, Recurring Donations, Paypal (if you’ve connected up your Paypal account) or any combination of these. By enabling Reocurring Giving you’ll now be presented with 3 freqjuency options; monthly, weekly and yearly – again you’re free to turn on whichever combination of frequencies you’d like to use for the specific donation page you’re creating.

Below your Donation Settings section is where you can then customise the dollar handles, form options, confirmation page, thank you email and choose your preferred layout option.

Dollar Handles

Editing your dollar handles is done the same as through your platform level Sponsored and Personal Donations. Add the amount, description (optional) and image (optional).

Form Options

Here’s where you can turn on and off data capture fields for each donation page you create, tun on the default In Memory fields or even add new fields by inserting a web frm you’ve created. If inserting a web form, the fields in your web form will appear as the last fields  on the donation form above the submit button.

Confirmation Page

Your Confirmation Page allows you to either redirect a donor to specific page after they make their donation or you can choose to simply display specific confirmation page copy on the default donation confirmation page template (in this case the header image and header copy will default to the specific donation page  you are using). Edit  your confirmation page copy easily using the editor on this tab.

Confirmation Email

Here’s where you can customise the thank you email donors will receive specific to the donation page they made their donation on. For example, if you’re creating an end of financial year appeal, you may wish to style the email template and/or use specific copy relating to the end of financil year appeal in the confirmation email the donor receives. Chose the template you’d like to use and then edit the copy through the editor – remembering to use the personalisation tags as needed such as sponsor name and sponsor amount to personalise the email.
