Registration with Fundraising - Set Up and Settings

Last Updated: Aug 16, 2016 03:12PM PDT

Registration + Fundraising is a unique way to increase revenue for your event. Whenever someone registers for your event, a fundraising page will be created for them. Our system sends them an email to claim their page. This is a very easy, trackable way to encourage supporters to fundraising on behalf of your organization because the effort it takes to convince an individual to create a fundraising page is eliminated. While it doesn’t mean they will fundraise for you immediately, it’s a helpful way to introduce them to peer-to-peer.

Pro tip. Get all the stats and figures on what makes a Registration + Fundraising page so powerful and unique in this easy-to-digest infographic.To start a Registration with Fundraising event, select “Event” from the “Create New” dropdown in your organization’s Fundraising Tab. You’ll land in your event details. Under event type, make sure you select “Registration with Fundraising.” At this time, you’ll set the individual fundraising goal required to participate in your event.

Registration Settings Descriptions:

Ticket / Registration Name

This sets a public-facing name for the ticket/registration. For example, General Admission, VIP, One-Day, Full Weekend, Bronze, Silver, Gold. Note: These options will appear in the order they are listed and cannot currently be moved or reorganized.

Quantity

This number tells our system how many registrations of this type to make available for purchase. For example, if "10" is entered here, as soon as 10 registrations of this type are sold, the option will be removed from the list of registrations listed.

Price

Plain and simple, this field indicates the cost of this specific registration type.

Donation %

The donation percentage field tells our system to break up the registration price by the portion that is tax deductible and the portion that is not. The portion that is tax deductible will appear in your Transactions report under the “Net Donation” field. This will also appear as the tax deductibility portion of a registration in the receipt that is emailed to the purchaser. The portion that is not tax deductible, or outside of this percentage, will be represented in the Transactions report under the “Event Costs” field.

Pro tip. Most organizations use the Donation % field to account for the fair market value of a registration or ticket. This field can accept a donation % with two decimal points (xx.xx%) if a full dollar amount is needed for the donation portion of a ticket or registration. This blog post will help you determine fair marketing value.

Ticket Description

Most organizations use this field to indicate which "perks" are included with a specific registration. For example, for a VIP registration the description might say something like, " This registration includes preferred parking, early bird check-in, a timing chip and lunch.

Transaction Fee

Choose whether you'd like the transaction fee to be added on top of the registration price or whether you'd like it to be absorbed in the ticket price. The second option will take the fee out of the total order amount.

Ticket Start & End Date

This setting tells our system when to make a registration type available for purchase. For example, if your organization offers early bird pricing, you're able to select a specific start and end time for early bird sales. Once the date and time is hit, the registration type will automatically be added or removed to the available registration options.

Tips for Ticket Start & End Times

Ticket start and end times are determined by the time zone set in the event details. If no ticket start and end time is indicated, the registration types will be sold until the campaign end date or until total quantities are fulfilled, whichever comes first.

If your campaign shows no registration events are available for purchase, check your registration quantities have been set to the correct amount. You can easily add more.

Attendees Per Ticket

This field shows many attendees are able to attend per registration type. Use this for group or table registrations.

Number Permitted Per Order

This field indicates how many registrations can be purchased in one order. For example, max two tickets purchased at a time.
