As the saying goes, two heads are better than one. This is definitely the case if we’re talking about fundraising. While every individual effort counts, sometimes it is best to combine forces with other like-minded, do-gooders and become part of something bigger. The below article will explain how to create or join a team in just a few simple steps.

1. Create an Individual Fundraising Page
2. Join a Team
3. Create a Team


1. Create an Individual Page

To be a member of any fundraising team, you must first create an individual fundraising page. From the main campaign landing page, click Become a Fundraiser. Then follow the short form until your page is created. Congrats - First step completed!




2. Join a Team

After going through the process of creating your individual page by naming your page, setting a fundraising goal, and uploading a photo, you will be taken to your fundraising page.  If someone you know has already created a team, you can also join forces with them by selecting the Join a Team option after clicking the Join The Movement button on the campaign landing page.

You will then have the option of entering the name of the team you are looking for in the search bar or browsing through the list of established teams, to find the team you are looking to join. Simply click on the name of the team you wish to join to become a team member.

You can also click the Join Team button on the team page.

3. Create a Team

Are you the ringleader of this operation? If so, you are probably looking to create a team and have your friends and family join up. You can create a team directly from the Campaign Landing Page by clicking the Join The Movement button, and selecting the Create a Team option in the pop-up. You will then be prompted to name your team, set a fundraising goal, and write a team mission statement. You will then be ready to recruit team members in order to start fundraising!


Team Fundraising Tips

Team Fundraising Progress: Any money given directly to a team fundraising page or an individual that is on a team page will roll up to the team fundraising page.

Leaving a Team: If you would like to leave a team, select the Leave Team option under the Team name on your individual page and you are back to being an individual fundraiser. The team lead and other team members will not receive a notification if you decide to leave your team.

Don’t see a Team option? It is possible that the nonprofit disabled team fundraising for a campaign, so if you are not seeing the option to Create or Join a team, you may want to reach out to the benefiting organization directly to see if they'd like to enable that option. 

Who can edit the team? Only the team captain who created the team will be able to edit the team fundraising page. The organization account admin can update the page title, the team lead, short URL, and the team fundraising goal.
