To create a fundraiser, go to your Dashboard and click on the Create a Fundraiser button. On the following page, you will see a step-by-step process for setting up your fundraiser. You can enter all the necessary information to customize your fundraiser. You will notice that most options are similar to creating other events in HQ.
Setting up Event-Based Fundraisers vs Ongoing Fundraisers in HQ
The first step is selecting the fundraiser type you want to create.
Event-based fundraiser: Raise funds by hosting events like charity runs, auctions, or galas.
Ongoing fundraiser: Raise funds for a specific cause over a period of time to support specific projects, equipment needs, crowdfunding campaigns, online donation drives for organizations/causes, booster club campaigns, etc.
Enter the name of your fundraiser that helps your donors identify your campaign.
Next, set a fundraising dollar amount goal for your campaign.
Add the participating schools under the Schools section. Please note that the financial school will get paid for the funds raised.
You can choose the Venue for your fundraiser. This is especially helpful if you want to take donations in person using Box Office.
Similar to creating tickets for sporting events you can create Donation Levels you're donors can choose from. If you select to turn on Unique link the donation level can only be seen to whom you send the link to. Donor pay fees will pass on any service fee to the donor if turned on.
Before you publish your fundraiser, we recommend you review the information entered using the Your Fundraiser Settings window on the right side of the page.
