Creating fundraising campaigns and donation drives is easier than ever to help you raise money or collect in-kind donations during COVID-19. Simply go to your group dashboard and select Giving > Add Fundraiser. If you haven't created a GivePulse group yet, start by going to https://www.givepulse.com/list.
You can select whether you'd like to create a fundraiser for monetary donations, or a donation drive for in-kind donations.
As you continue through the giving workflow, you'll see the Fundraiser setting. If toggled to "yes," users will have the ability to create their own peer-to-peer fundraiser to support your cause. This is a great way to share your fundraiser or donation drive with a broader community. Read more about peer-to-peer fundraising here.
Under Checkout, you can include a custom message your donors will see as they finalize their donation. You also have the option to add custom questions to your donation form. We recommend that you ask no more than 2 additional questions for optimal donor experience.
Note: If you haven't already done so, you'll be prompted to set up your bank account to publish your fundraiser. You can do this by clicking on the prompt in the Add Fundraiser workflow or by going to Payments > Bank Settings from your group dashboard.
Once your organization's bank account is connected, you'll be able to receive the donations and have it deposited in your bank account within 3 business days. You can always view pending payouts in the Manage Payouts area under Payments.
