Fundraising takes many forms. We understand that you may receive checks or cash in-person to count towards your fundraiser’s goal, too. While Mightycause does not process these donations, we can help you display them in your fundraiser total or organization metrics.
For this reason, you can use the Offline Donations feature on your organization’s fundraiser or organization profile page. Please note: This is simply to act as a display feature. These funds are not processed through Mightycause.
Adding an offline donation
Before you add your offline donation, distinguish whether you would like this added to your general fund (organization profile page) or a specific campaign page.
Once you have done so, go to that page.
- If it's an organization page, on the left hand side dashboard, select "Reports" and then select "Offline Donations."
From here, you can click on the “Add offline donation” text at the top.
- If it's a specific campaign page, on the left hand side dashboard, select the Donation Icon, then click on “Donation Report.”
You’ll see your donation report for your fundraiser. From here, you can click on the “Add offline donation” text with the grey plus icon next to it.
Once you have opened the offline donation input area, just type in the details of your offline donation. You will be able to input their name (write Anonymous if you want to keep that information private), donation amount, donation date, email address, and source (ie. check, cash, match, sponsor, etc.)
This will be added to your fundraiser’s display thermometer and your organizations displayed metrics for supporters to see.
To download a detailed report of these donations, fill in the desired fields and click "Download this range".
Editing/Removing an Offline Donation
It’s not possible to edit an offline donation. But, that’s OK! You can just delete the old one and add a new one in its place.
To delete an offline donation, just go back to “Donations” > "Donations Report" on the left-hand sidebar. Edit the report range to the desired date, then find the donation listed in your donations report (hint: It will say “Offline Donation” below it).
Then, hover over the donation and an “x” will pop up in the right-hand side of the donation. Click the x, and a message will ask you to confirm that you want to delete the offline donation:
Then, just add a new offline donation with the amended information by following the steps above.
