Classy offers the option to include sponsor donation matching for your fundraising campaigns. For donation matching we only provide a 1:1 (dollar for dollar) match. Donation Matching occurs when a company or individual agrees to match your campaign donations dollar for dollar for a specific time period and/or up to a certain dollar amount. If donation matching is enabled, and a supporter makes a contribution to your campaign, an offline donation will automatically be created to match all donations for the specified time period, and/or up to the specified amount. Transaction and credit card fees are never assessed to offline donations.

2. Go to the Advanced Tab and Select Donation Matching

Here you can manage or delete all of your matching sponsors.

3. Click Add Matching Sponsor

3. Complete the matching sponsor details

When all the information for your sponsorship is populated, you can then upload the sponsor's logo or image. This logo will appear on the activity feed of the individual fundraising pages to alert the donor and the fundraiser that the donation received has been matched. As always, don't forget to save! Please note that if a matching campaign is added to a registration event, ticketed event, or a donation page then the donation match sponsor logo will not appear seeing as these pages do not have activity feeds


 

Once the new sponsor is created it will show under Active Matching Sponsors. To manage this sponsorship at any time, you can click directly on the name of the sponsor. Once active, you can track how much each sponsor has matched, and how they are tracking against their limit where applicable.


When a donation is made to a fundraiser, the donation will show up on their activity feed, along with a message, letting them know that the donation was matched by the organization's sponsor.
