How do I set up a “fund-a-need" option in my Auction for direct donations?

Fund-a-need" is an option available within your Auction that allows for your participants to donate directly to your organization for a specific cause or ask. (For example, perhaps your animal rescue needs to purchase new travel crates.)

When adding a new item, you have the option to select the item’s type as a “Fixed Price” item. For a fund-a-need “item,” you’ll want to select this option, and then enter the donation amount you’d like displayed in the “Buy It Now” field.

If you wish to provide multiple donation options, you may want to provide several fund-a-need “items” for various fixed prices (such as $25, $50, $100, etc.) This allows participants to select multiple options to best fit the amount they’d like to donate.
