Team Fundraising on Givebutter is what’s often referred to as “Peer-to-Peer Fundraising” by many folks in the nonprofit industry. If you are simply looking to donate to a campaign, click the "Donate" button.

Ways to join a campaign as a team member ➕

  • Receive an email invitation from the campaign organizers

  • Follow a direct link shared by the campaign organizers

  • Click the "Fundraise" button on the main campaign page

Fundraise Button Method

Once you click the Fundraise button, you'll be asked to create a Givebutter account. If you already have one, click Sign in at the bottom of the pop-up window instead of entering new information.

Sign in or fill in the details for your new account and click Sign up. On the next screen, add a few more details such as your fundraising goal and your personal story, then click Join this fundraiser.

You'll be taken to your newly created team member page! Make a note of the web address - that's your personalized link. Share that web address so you get credit when other people make a donation because of you!

If have you not been invited to fundraise and you don't see a public "Fundraise" button on the campaign page, but do see other Team Members, please contact the campaign organizers to be invited to join as a team member.

Sign up for multiple team members 👪

If you need to sign up for multiple team member profiles on behalf of others (most often in the case of a parent needing to sign up for multiple children), you'll notice that you can only use a single email address to sign up for one team member profile. There are two ways around this:

Use multiple email addresses

If you have access to multiple email addresses (such as work and personal, or parent 1 and parent 2) this can be a simple option for signing up on behalf of multiple team members.

Use the same email address

To sign up for multiple team member profiles using the same email, try this trick!

  • First profile – use your email address as normal, ie.

  • Second profile – add "+1" before the @ symbol, ie.

  • Third profile – add add "+2" before the @ symbol, ie.

Emails sent to [email protected] and [email protected] will all go to the parent email address of [email protected].

You can also use words instead of numbers after the "+". For example, [email protected] and [email protected] will both forward emails to [email protected].

Please note that this works for Gmail addresses, but may not work with other email providers. Test at your own discretion!

Using this "+1" trick allows you to register the same email address multiple times, as our system recognizes them as separate logins.
