Fundraising takes many forms. We understand that you may receive checks or cash 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.
For this reason, you can use the Offline Donations feature on your fundraising page. Please note: This is simply to act as a display feature. These funds are not processed through Mightycause.
Adding an offline donation
To add an offline donation, go to your fundraising page, select the 'Donations' option on your left side dashboard:
This will open up your donation report for your fundraiser. In the top right hand corner, click the button that says 'Add offline donation.'
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.
Please note, if you would like your offline donation to show on your fundraiser page, be sure the date entered for the offline gift is after the metrics calculation start date for your fundraiser. 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.
The offline donation will be added to your fundraiser’s display thermometer and donor timeline for supporters to see.
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, go back to 'Donations' on the left-hand dashboard. Here, you can then find the donation you'd like to delete in your donations report. Click the 3 dot menu to the right of the donation and then choose 'Delete.'
Then, just add a new offline donation with the amended information by following the steps above.
