In this support article we will be reviewing all of the settings that will help you customize your nonprofit fundraising website to suit your needs.
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.
The Metrics tool allows you to control the fundraising metrics your Mightycause page displays.
You can decide whether you want the amount of money your nonprofit has raised to display, and if you want to include offline donations in that total. You can also choose whether or not you’d like to display the number of donors you’ve had on your Mightycause page.
Most importantly, you can add a goal and progress bar on your organization profile page:
Within Page Settings, select the "Goal & progress bar" option and add in a goal amount.
You'll also want to decide your Calculation Method. This tool allows you to choose the date your Displayed Metrics count from. So, for instance, if you wanted to calculate your fundraising total by the amount of donations you have received from the start of the year, you'd want add "January 1st, [Current Year]" as your start date.
Donors Panel Visibility
Your Donors Panel is the collage of your donors’ user profile photos that displays next to your story. Please note, donors who have not added a photo to their user account will not be populated here.
Here, you can access the embed codes for all widgets, including the direct donate widget.
Organization Page Settings
Your nonprofit’s Settings help you control aspects of your page and your presence on Mightycause: You can customize your url, manage other users who have admin access to your page on Mightycause, and update how you receive your disbursements.
To access your Settings, click the gear icons on your Dashboard.
Your Settings section is divided into three sub-sections: Organization Settings, Admins, Integrations.
You'll first want to select the top sub-section "Organization Settings." This is where you will find most of your primary settings.

This allows you to change the URL of your Mightycause page. By default, it will be your organization’s legal name, but you can change it to a DBA or shorten it with this tool.
Please note, a unique url can only be used or taken once on our platform. If a specific url is not available, that means it has already been taken and you cannot use that url. However, feel free to include dashes or underscores in order to utilize the url you want (ex. -Mightycause-Foundation)
When Discoverability is “on,” Mightycause users can easily find your organization using our search feature. Turning off Discoverability will hide your organization so only supporters with a direct link can access.
Select "Customize" to update the image and text social media networks use when someone shares your page.
The recommended photo size for social sharing is 1200px x 627px.
Bank Information For EFT

If at any time you need to update your EFT, you can always head back to this section and select "Manage EFT."
Legal Name and Mailing Address for Checks
If you have not set up EFT, your disbursement will be sent via check to the legal name and legal mailing address listed here. Please note that with check disbursements there is a $5 service fee per check.
If you need to update your legal mailing address, select "Update Address."
To update your legal mailing address, please add in your new legal mailing address and attach any government document, bank statement or utility bill that lists your correct information. We cannot accept any self-generated documents such as a W-9 form or IRS Form 990. Once you select "Submit" your request will be reviewed by the Mightycause team.
Legal Organization Info
If you need to updated your legal name, select "Edit Legal Information."

All of your current administrators will be listed here. All administrators have the same administrative control and access.

Integrations (Advanced feature)
Integrations or Data Connect is one of our Advanced features for Advanced subscribers.
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.
Zapier allows you to set up automated processes called “zaps." These "zaps" can help you export data, automate thank you emails, add new donors to MailChimp and Constant Contact lists, create Salesforce contacts and more. Advanced Plan subscribers have access to pre-loaded “zaps” that can help your nonprofit start automating!
If you would like to learn more about adding a Zapier integration to your Mightycause account, you can learn more here.
