You can set up different vehicles to accept cash donations to provide the reporting details desired.
A single cash donation option can be offered in many places:
- on Fundraising Campaign(s),
- during registration,
- as a paddle raise during your auction
And/or separate options can be created to provide reporting by source and/or type of donation:
- Directed Appeals (capital projects, endowment etc)
- Additional donations during registration etc.
ALL cash donation options can be created at Admin > Site Settings > Cash Donations/Sponsorships > Cash Donation Options, but a simpler process is integrated in the Fundraising Campaign setup wizard (for basic options, without images or descriptions).
Returning Users: Paddle Raise items are now created as a Cash Donation Option.
- If you select type = Paddle Raise on the catalog add/edit item page, you will be redirected to the new form.
- Any cash donation options flagged to be offered in the Catalog will display as items in the Admin/gridview of the catalog.
- You can specify whether they display in the public catalog or not.
To Create a Cash Donation Option:
Go to: Admin > Site Settings > Cash Donations/Sponsorships > Cash Donation Options > Add New
Note that a "Cash Contribution" is available on your site by default. This allows you to set-up and utilize the "add-on donation" feature during registration and the Give (Donate Now) page "out of the box". You can edit or delete the existing option and/or create additional options.
Recurring Donations (monthly billing) are available with Plus/Premium subscriptions.
