You can add text and images, embed video content, and include links to other websites from your Page or Event campaign's Story editor! This is a great place to add extra information about your campaign, your organization, and how donor support will make a difference. It's also an ideal place to add sponsors for your campaign.

Edit your campaign story ✏️

  • In your dashboard, select your campaign from the list in the left-hand sidebar.

    • If you don't see it, click All Campaigns to get the full list.

Adding campaign sponsors 💰

Most organizations find that adding sponsors (and their logos) to the Story section is the best location, since Givebutter campaigns do not have a dedicated place to upload sponsor information. You can add sponsors a few different ways.

  • Create a graphic including all your sponsor logos (Max image width: 1200px. Max file size: 5MB). This also gives you more flexibility with formatting and branding options. Example campaign →

  • Create a graphic listing your sponsors – works best if you have many individuals. (Max image width: 1200px. Max file size: 5MB.) Example campaign →

  • List your sponsor names as text. Link out to their websites using the URL/link formatting option.

  • Insert sponsor logos individually using the image inserter. Example campaign →

Some organizations prefer positioning sponsors front and center on their campaign – you can also add sponsors to your Cover Photo so they appear at the top of the page!


How do I update or add images to my personal story?
If you are a team member, you'll want to take a look at our separate guide for editing your personal team member story – this guide is specific to the overall campaign story.

Can I edit the font used in the story section, or edit the text on the "Story" heading?

Not currently, but please see the feature request for using custom fonts in the story section and the feature request for custom headings on campaigns. Add a vote if these are features you'd like to see in the future!

Can I embed an audio file in my campaign story?

Unfortunately, we do not support audio files at this time.

I embedded a YouTube video that's displaying "related videos" from other accounts at the end of my video, or when my video is paused. Can I disable that?

Yes – you'll need to add "?rel=0" to the end of your video's URL in the embed code to prevent related videos from other accounts from appearing. You can also follow this video guide for detailed steps.
