At Givebutter, it's our goal to become your long-term partner in making the world a better place. To help achieve this, we've carefully structured our platform so that you'll no longer have to start from scratch every time you need to raise money. Whenever you're ready to start a new Campaign, all of your past donor information, Campaign details, members and more will be readily accessible for you to utilize inside of your Account's central dashboard.

How to create a new Campaign

Navigate to your Dashboard sidebar and below the word "Campaigns”, click the [+ New campaign] button.

Choosing a Campaign type.

Givebutter has three distinct campaign types for collecting donations, running full-fledged fundraisers, and selling tickets:

Note: You can switch an existing campaign type at any time.

The last thing you need to do is give your campaign a name:

Title – You'll be able to edit this later, but as a rule of thumb:

  1. For Collect campaigns: Keep it simple - "Donate to (your name/cause)" works just fine
  2. For Fundraise campaigns: Use actionable titles like "Help (your name/cause) (do xyz)"
  3. For Events campaigns: Use the event's name (if you have one) or something like “Join us at (xyz venue) for a night of fun and philanthropy!”

Click Create Campaign!

High-five! Your campaign has been created. Now what?

The best way to get started is by following the steps shown on your campaign's welcome card. 👋
