Advice and answers from the CauseVox Team

The more you are able to show the impact your donor is making, the more donations you will get - that is the purpose of the Impact Metric feature.

The impact metric is a counter that automatically shows how many units of impact your fundraising campaign has created.

Here is an example:

Let’s say that your unit of impact is $15 and that it provides 1 week of food to a child. For every $15 you get in donations, then the impact metric counter will show 1 more week of food provided. If you have $60 donations, the it will show 4 weeks of food provided.

To set up the impact metric, follow the steps below:

Step 1: In your Site Settings, click on “Display Options” along the left hand menu bar, and scroll down to the Impact Metric section.

Step 2: Enter a unit amount and a short description for the counter. Please note:

  • You can only have one Impact Metric
  • The unit measure can only be whole numbers and values (i.e. $10 or $50 instead of $0.10 or $0.50)
  • The calculation of your impact metric is automatically done on your CauseVox campaign site.

Step 3: Click on Save on the upper right corner.

*Note: Try matching the Impact Metric Description to your Donation Tiers.
