Activate the Fundraising feature in the Apps tab!
You can create a fundraising campaign to support your organization or any other cause. This campaign will be displayed in your online store and can even be embedded into your organization's website for more visibility.
In this article you will learn how to:
1. Create a campaign
You can create your campaign(s) in the Store>Fundraising subtab. Click on the + New campaign button to access the campaign creation screen and complete the fields.
📄 Details section
Write the name and description of your campaign. The Description appears in the quick view of your campaign and the Full description is visible in the detailed view of your campaign (when clicking on it in the store), which are both visible to clients.
Select the appropriate Ledger code for your campaign.
The beginning date is the date the campaign takes effect and can receive donations. It's only visible in the store when it is active (see below).
The expiration date is the date the campaign ends (at midnight) and is no longer accessible to clients. You don't have to put an end date if there isn't one.
Active campaign: Check this box to activate the campaign and make it visible to clients in the store. A fundraiser can still be in effect and receive donations without being displayed publicly in your store.
Feature it in checkout: Check this box if you want the campaign to be displayed automatically during the checkout process. This way, any client who purchases an activity, membership or a merchandise product will be able to donate, even if they have not visited the Fundraising tab.
Display raised amount: Check this box if you want your clients to see the amount raised for the campaign.
🥅 Goal section
Set a campaign goal by checking the box and writing the goal amount to reach.
Display your goal amount in the store by checking the box.
Show progress as percentage of goal amount: Check the box if you want to publish the progress as a percentage to encourage your clients to donate more.
💸 Methods of payment section
Decide which methods of payment you wish to make available for this campaign. You may select multiple options.
🖼️ Image section
Select an image to upload to the campaign, which will be visible to clients in the store. The image must already be on your computer.

Once all the sections above are completed, Save your campaign.
2. View your Campaign Progress
