Aim: To enable visitors to your charity's Facebook page to donate via your GivenGain charity profile.
Note: You'll need to be an administrator of your charity's Facebook page to perform this action.
First, ensure that you are logged out of your GivenGain account, then locate your GivenGain charity profile on our platform by using the "Search GivenGain" field, and view it.
In a new browser tab, visit your charity's Facebook page and click on "Add a Button" at the top right below the cover image. (If you already have a call to action button set up, click on it, then select "Edit button") In the "Choose a Button" drop-down menu, select "Donate". (The "Donate" option will only be available if your page category is "Non-profit organisation" or "Non-governmental organisation (NGO)")
Add your charity's GivenGain URL in the "Website" field – select your preferred URL. For example:
- A GivenGain charity profile – example
- A GivenGain charity profile general donation page – example
- A GivenGain charity profile campaign list page – example
- A GivenGain charity profile campaign page – example
- A GivenGain charity profile campaign donation page – example
When done, click on "Create" in the popup window. The "Donate" button should display at the top right of your charity's Facebook page, below the cover image. Example.
Important: Hover your cursor over the "Donate" button and select "Test button" to ensure that it is set up correctly. If not, edit the button and change the URL.
Tip: When the "Donate" button is set up on your charity's Facebook page, why not add a post on your Facebook page to let everyone know about it? Invite your fans to visit your Facebook page and click on the "Donate" button to set up a donation for you!
Note: The URL formats may differ slightly if you’ve added text in the "Charity URL" field (Settings > Account) and "Charity campaign URL" field (Charity campaigns > Manage > Edit) on your GivenGain account.
