2. Setup
3. Theme

Get Started

To create a new Donation Page, navigate to your Fundraising Tab and click the Create New button. From the dropdown menu, select Donation Page. This will be listed under the new section seeing as it is a newer campaign type.

Setup

Fill in the details of your Donation Page. Keep in mind that changes can be made after you complete these initial steps.

Click Next Step

Theme

The theme selection allows you to set the basic branding of your donation page. These will transfer to your donation pages later in the process, so you have a head start on your donation page's design. Below are elements of the theme that you will be able to apply during this step.

A.) Campaign Logo

To add your campaign logo select Upload

You can add an image from your computer of from our built-in image library, powered by Pixabay. We recommend using high-quality, transparent PNG images that are 300 pixels wide by 75 pixels tall.

Click Next Step or Next

B.) Background Image

The background image will appear behind the checkout form. To add a background image select Upload

You can add an image from your computer of from our built-in image library, powered by Pixabay. We recommend using an image where the focus of the image is on the side and not in the center, as that is where the checkout form will lay and obstruct the view.

Click Next Step or Next

C.) Primary Color

Finally, add the primary color to your donation page. The primary color will be seen on the donation buttons. Choose a primary color that is complimentary to your campaign logo. You can change this later if you want.

Click Next Step or Finish

After you finish these steps, you will land in your Donation Page's Overview Tab. You can always return to your campaign to make edits or updates.
