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, organizations that are subscribed to the Essentials or Advanced plan have the ability to display them in the fundraiser total or organization metrics.
For this reason, you can use the Offline Donations feature on your organization’s campaign or organization profile page. Please note: This is simply to act as a display feature. These funds are not processed through Mightycause. There are no donation fees associated with offline donations.
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 side dashboard select "Reports" and then select "Offline Donations."
Select "Add offline donation" or select the + icon on the dashboard next to the "Offline donations" tab.
If you are on a specific campaign page, on the left side dashboard, select the Donation Icon, then click on “Donation Report.”
Once your campaign donation report appears, click the “Add offline donation” button in the top right corner:
The offline donation input box will appear. You will be able to enter key information such as the donor name, email address, the source (ie. cash, check, corporate, match, etc.), and notes about the donation. The information provided will be viewable in the downloaded offline donations report.
Be sure to click “Complete Donation” to add it to your display!
The External Tracking Id is an optional value that can be provided to assist in reconciling and tracking your offline donations with other internal systems. This can be a string of any characters or text and will be included on your offline donation reporting. Text limit is 255 characters.
Once you complete the donation it will be added to your campaign's display thermometer and your organization's displayed metrics for supporters to see.
Please note, if you would like your offline donation to show in your page metrics and your page metrics are set to begin calculating on a particular day, be sure the date entered for the offline gift is after the calculation start date. We suggest listing the actual gift date in the Notes section. This way the donation will be displayed on your page and the gift information will be held in your donations reports.
To review more detailed information on these donations, click the download icon to export this information into an excel sheet.
If there are multiple offline donations you would like to import, you can do so through the Advanced Plan. You can learn how to import offline donations here.
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, select the tool icon next to the corresponding donation:
A message will ask you to confirm that you want to delete the offline donation:
Then, simply add a new offline donation with the amended information by following the steps above.
