Mightycause has a lot of features available to nonprofits, and knowing how to navigate them is key. With our dashboard, finding the information you need quickly has never been easier or more intuitive. In this Support article, we’ll walk you through navigating your dashboard and how to access all of the most important features.
Accessing the Mightycause Dashboard
When you log into Mightycause, you’ll see your name on the upper-left side of the page. A dropdown menu appears when you hover over your name with your mouse, which allows you to access different parts of your user profile and any nonprofits you have access to manage.
To head over to your nonprofit page, simply select your nonprofit's name in the dropdown. Your nonprofit will be on the top of your user menu.
If you manage multiple nonprofits on Mightycause, you’ll see all of them listed and be able to access that nonprofit’s dashboard through this menu.
The Home Screen
When you click on your nonprofit’s dashboard, you’ll be taken to the home screen of your Mightycause dashboard.
This screen will contain some key metrics for your nonprofit so you can get a quick update on what’s been happening on Mightycause in the past 30 days, 90 days, or year.
At the bottom of your home screen, you’ll also see a To-Do List that lets you know what you can do to begin to complete your nonprofit’s profile. This is a great way to become acquainted with the platform.
If you are participating in a Giving Day and viewing your page from your giving day site, you will also be able to track your registration through the home screen.
We’ll also be sharing important news and updates to the Mightycause platform that nonprofit admins need to know on your home screen.
The Mightycause Dashboard
On the left side of the home screen is your dashboard. You can use the dashboard to toggle between all of the different options to manage your nonprofit on Mightycause.
If you see dashboard options that are not highlighted, that means they’re Advanced features you do not currently have access to without a monthly subscription.
You can gain access to these features by subscribing to our Advanced plan. Learn more about our Advanced Plan and view these features in a group demo!
Your organization profile (often called an “org page” in Mightycause lingo) is your nonprofit’s evergreen page with information about your work, images, donors and the ability to make donations and create fundraisers.
You can manage your profile’s content and profile settings through the Profile section of your dashboard. This area is divided into three sub-sections:
When you select "Live Page," you will see how your profile will appear to visitors and donors. Any items only viewable to you, as an admin, will be removed.
When you select Page Editor, you will see all of your editing tools for your organization page.
Page Settings provides you all the tools you need to add in key metrics to your organization page or embed a donation widget onto your nonprofit's website.
Everything related to donations can be found under Reports.
This area is divided into six sub-sections:
Our Fundraising screen gives you a snapshot of all campaigns currently running for your nonprofit on Mightycause.
From this area of the dashboard, you can easily access:
- Donor Experience
- Matching Grants
- Text-to-give (for Advanced subscribers)
- Custom Donation Form and Page (for Advanced subscribers)
- Volunteers (for Advanced subscribers)
From the Fundraising screen, you’ll be able to see a list of all fundraising campaigns, divided into fundraisers created by your nonprofit and peer-to-peer fundraisers and teams.
View of Campaigns started by your nonprofit:
You can sort campaigns, download a report and even begin new fundraisers from this screen.
Your Settings screen is used to manage your nonprofit’s options across the Mightycause platform.
We’ve separated the Settings section into three sub-sections.
This is where you will find the majority of your primary settings. Within Organization Settings you can sign up for a trial of our Advanced Plan, customize your url, set up EFT, and much more.
Admins allows you to manage, add and remove other administrators to your organization on Mightycause.
Integrations (Advanced Feature)
As an Advanced Subscriber, you’ll also be able to utilize Integrations or Data Connect. Mightycause has partnered with Zapier to help Advanced nonprofits create automated connections and save time. Zapier will automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.
Supporter records are more than just robust donor records. The Mightycause Supporters tool provides records not just for donors, but volunteers, peer-to-peer fundraisers and team organizers. This helps your nonprofit ensure that you are tracking not just those who’ve made a monetary donation, but also those who have provided other kinds of essential support.
Sample Supporter record:
Your Supporters records are easily accessible from your dashboard, so you can quickly find supporters, add notes, update their information and ensure that you’re tracking every contribution they make to your nonprofit.
Analytics is a tool that provides Advanced Plan subscribers with a snapshot of all the most important fundraising metrics, such as donor retention rate, average gift size, types of donations, and more. Through Analytics, you can also connect your Google Analytics account to Mightycause to get even more details about the traffic to your Mightycause page and where visitors are coming from.
Calls to Action
The Calls to Action tool is a unique tool offered exclusively by Mightycause. Calls to Action allows you to post volunteer opportunities, manage volunteers, collect the information you need from prospective volunteers, and even log volunteer hours.
