Supporter User Guide

Accessing Your Fundraiser Dashboard

As a fundraiser, you’ll have your own personal Fundraiser Dashboard. Sometimes you’ll see it called a Supporter Dashboard too. They’re the same thing. That is where you’ll be able to see any events that you are involved in. To access it, just click on the “Manage” button in the upper right of your fundraising page. 

How To Share Your Fundraising Page

Sharing your fundraising page is easy and critical to reaching your fundraising goal. This support article will walk through the different sharing options available to you as a fundraiser.

1. Share Directly From The Fundraising Page

The first, and easiest, way to share your page can be found on your live fundraising page. On the top right of the page, there is an Arrow icon that expands the sharing options. Click the arrow to share your page via Twitter, Facebook or Email.

2. Share From Your Fundraiser Dashboard

While logged into your Play It Forward Account, click the Manage button on your live fundraising page to navigate to the Fundraiser Dashboard.

From the Fundraiser Dashboard, you have three different options for sharing your fundraising page: Facebook, Twitter, and URL link share.

3. Share Using Your Page URL

The last way to share your fundraising page with your network is to send your page URL via email. You can simply copy the URL in the address bar of your browser, and paste it into an email to send to potential donors!

How To Thank Donors As A Fundraiser

Thanking donors is very important. Not only is it a great way to show your appreciation, but when you follow up with a thank you, donors are much more likely to share your page with others. 

1. Thank Them From Fundraiser Dashboard Donations Tab

From your fundraiser dashboard, select the Donations tab to generate a list of donations made to your fundraising page.

Select the Thank button located to the right of a donation, type your message, and click Comment! You can also use the Mark Thanked feature, which indicates who you have thanked and who you have yet to thank for their donation.

2. Thank Them From The Fundraiser Activity Feed

From your live fundraising page, scroll down until you see the Fundraising Page Activity Feed located near the bottom of the page. This will display the most recent activity on your page. You can thank donors here by clicking the Reply button next to a donation, typing your thank you message in the resulting text field, and selecting Post Comment.

3. Thank Them Through Email

From your Fundraiser Dashboard, select the Emails tab, then select the Thank Your Donors email template. If you prefer to thank your donors via email, this will provide you with a pre-populated thank you email template. 

Select Copy Message, paste the copied language into a new email in your personal email account and send the thank you. This copied message contains a link back to your personal fundraising page as well!
