Setting up a donation campaign

Did you know you can create a campaign to help raise money for your cause? You can tell a story to your potential contributors and then collect credit card donations using our Donation Template.

 

To get started: 7-8-2014 11-26-39 AM.jpg

  1. Login to your Constant Contact account 
  2. Click Campaign > Create A Campaign
  3. Click Offers and Promotions > Donation > Create Campaign
  4. Fill out the Donation page title, default donation amount, campaign goal (optional) and end date (optional)
  5. Add an image and short story about why you are raising money
  6. Connect to WePay
  7. Edit the Theme if you would like
  8. Click “Make Page Live”
  9. Once on the next page, make sure you fill out the fields to send a Donation campaign email
  10. Click Schedule and Finish!

 

Your Donation page will stay live until the end date you selected. If you didn’t select an end date, you can continue to collect donations until you manually click the “End Donation Campaign” button on the reporting page.

 

Don’t forget to track the progress of your campaign once it’s live.
