Many event managers want to add Fundraising Pages to their event for their participants.
This can be advantageous for example if you are a school and you want to create one Fundraising Page (FRP) per class or perhaps your event is aimed at corporates and you want to prepare pages in advance for your client.
Please note that this article discusses adding Fundraising Pages (FRPs) to a fundraising only event. Events that require registration and payment will have different instructions.
STEP ONE - ENSURE YOUR DEFAULTS ARE SET UP
When you add pages the pages will pick up all the default attributes that you have entered. Go to your event. Click Manage. Select Settings/Fundraising settings and make sure you have added
FRP banner. Must be 1400 x 200 pixels Jpeg
FRP image. Every page will have this image
FRP text. Every page will have this text
FRP target. Every page will have this donation target
STEP TWO - ADD MULTIPLE PAGES
Go to Manage Fundraising and click the button "add multiple fundraising pages".
This area allows you to upload a csv file. (A csv file is a spreadsheet. It is a simple excel format. You must save your spreadsheet as .csv)
You have two options :
Link all pages to one email or link each page to a unique email address.
For a school with multiple class pages you would use one email address. we suggest you create a new one like firstname.lastname@example.org. For a corporate where you want the page owner to have more control and to receive notifications you may choose to add a unique email for each page, being the page owner's email.
All FRPs are owned by a registered user. The user can login and edit the page and will also receive page notifications such as the daily donation summary.
When you create your bulk pages by uploading the csv file above, the page owner will also receive a notification that the page has been created.
CSV FILE FORMAT
As the event manager you will now see all the pages you have uploaded in your event portal. You can manage the page including adding offline donations, changing page name and downloading donation reports.
