Step 2: Select the Type of Campaign


"Short-Term" campaigns promote a fundraising goal and automatically expire on the end date. "Ongoing Fund" campaigns are promoted until the administrator manually ends the campaign. Note that the amount raised will be invisible on campaign 'ads' until it reaches $100.

Step 3: Enter Title 

For best results, the "Title" should be very specific and identify what the funds will be used for.

Step 4: Enter Details


In the "Details" section, describe why the money is needed and what will be achieved by raising the funds. You can include any supporting links to be more informative.

Step 6: Enter a Thank You Message


After a donation is made, a "Thank You Message" email is sent to the donor, which you can further personalize. If you want to add "Amount" and "Title" in the body of the sent message, please utilize the "$#amount#" & "#title#" tags, as shown.
