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.
