You are building your Donations website and wish to understand the required webpages.
Your custom website is built at Website -> Pages. There are only three pages that you will need to manage for your Donations Website – the Donation Page, Donation Page Introduction and the Donation Thank you. These will already be active if you have a Donations template. You may also wish to add a Home page or other blank pages where you can include content about the fundraising initiative.
- The Donation Page Introduction allows you to enter the text that appears on the top of your Donation form. This area is generally used to highlight your organization’s mission and goals, and to make a plea to your constituents. You can include a fundraising thermometer here as well. Keep this short, so that constituents do not need to scroll down too far to see your Donation form.
- The Donation Thank you page is displayed when a donor completes a donation transaction. This is the final page that will flash before them, after they have successfully entered their donation. You may wish to include further information about how their donation benefits your organization, and/or upload an image onto this page. The only way to view the page is by making a test donation.
- The Donation Page is different than the above 2 pages, as it is not directly editable. This is your Donation form or donations management system, and must be included in your website for donors to make a secure donation. Configure settings for this page at Donations -> Settings.
