How to create an online fundraising page in 3 steps
Cheddar Up can be used for so many different things—events, group gifts, sales, registrations—and classic fundraising (and crowdfunding) is certainly among them.
You can create an online fundraising page at zero cost to your organization in minutes. You’ll be able to share one link with your community that allows people to donate with zero friction. They’ll be able to simply click the link in your website, email or other communications, choose a donation amount and pay, without having to download an app or create an account.
Give your fundraiser a banner, name and description
A description is a great place to describe your cause and how donations will make a difference. This is where you inspire your community to give! And don’t forget the banner—the perfect place to insert a logo or photo that will also spark compassion for your cause.
For fundraising-related pages, you definitely want to include an “any amount” type of item. This allows people to give the amount they desire.
You might also consider adding some fixed amount items at different giving levels that donors can easily select. Giving levels of Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze, for example, are something we see often.
In addition, we strongly recommend adding a recurring item to your fundraising page. Allowing donors to automatically give monthly or annually can be a gamechanger for ongoing and repeat giving.
