A donation widget can be a useful tool on your organization’s website to ensure a consistent experience for donors. Mightycause’s donation widget makes it easy to make a donation on your organization’s website. Our donation widget is compatible with most websites, including Medium, Tumblr and WordPress blogs.
How to Add the Donation Widget
To add your donation widget, simply login at mightycause.com/login and go to your Organization profile or Fundraiser.
To access your donation widget from your organization profile, select the "Share" icon on the left-side of your page.
Within the Share menu, select "</> Embed options"
If you are looking to embed from a fundraising page, select the "</>" underneath the the social sharing icon
Once you have select the embed option, you should see a pop up like this:
You’ll need to choose the type of widget you’d like to use.
Donation Widget: People will be able to complete a donation from the widget, without leaving the page where you’ve embedded it. The widget itself is secure, even if your website or blog is not.
Facebook page: This will install a Facebook “app” that puts a “Donate” button on your page and allows people to complete donations from our widget. This doesn’t work for Facebook profiles — you will need a Facebook brand page in order to install this widget.
Thumbnail: This creates a widget that links to your Mightycause page. People cannot donate from this widget, but it will take them to your Mightycause page where they can read your full story and complete a donation.
Donate Button: This generates a “Donate” button that links to your Mightycause page.
Once you’ve chosen the type of widget you’d like to use, simply add the button by putting the iFrame embed code into the HTML code on your website.
Please note, the donation widget works best for long-form blogs and is not available for non-HTML sites.
