If you have published an online campaign, many times donors will hand you (for instance, at PTA meetings, parent-teacher meetings, etc) cash or a check, and ask you to donate those funds to your campaign.
Each published campaign with LT Give has a feature that facilitates the ability for campaign creators to be able to apply donated cash or check funds to the campaign, and further account for the transaction within the Reporting Tool.
Adding a "Backer" (cash/check funds) to a Campaign
To apply cash or check funds to your campaign using the "Add Backer" feature, follow the steps:
- Go to Fundraising > Active Campaigns, find your campaign
- Click the cog icon at the top right of your campaign's thumbnail
- Click on the "Add Backer" option
4. An "Add Backer" popup will appear (see below). Enter the amount of the donated funds, Donor's First Name, Donor's Last Name and Donor's Email Address.
-If the donor has asked you to indicate that they would like to donate on behalf of a person (IE - student, teacher, etc), you can click the checkbox to add their name.
-If the donor has asked that they would like to donate anonymously, click the checkbox at the bottom.
Once you have completed the information for this donation, click the save button.
