Create a Meaningful Donor Experience This Christmas
iDonate have just launched a new tool that will make Christmas fundraising easier for causes, and Christmas giving more meaningful for donors.
Gifts of Impact Creator tool is available to all causes in their Cause Admin Panel and is quick and easy to use.
Using this tool, causes can set up a selection of Christmas ‘gifts’, which supporters can purchase by making a donation.
Each ‘gift’ should represent the value of the donation, for example a €50 donation will provide a Christmas Family Hamper.
This creates a more meaningful experience for the donor, as they can understand the impact that their donation will have.
After purchasing a gift, the donor will receive a Christmas themed certificate with details of their donation. This certificate will also feature your cause logo.
See below the simple steps to setting up a Gifts of Impact section on your iDonate Public Profile Page, as well as a list of FAQs in relation to this tool.
