Team member fundraising on Givebutter is what’s often referred to as “peer-to-peer fundraising” by folks in the nonprofit industry. Team members can receive credit for donations by sharing their custom link, and any donations made will automatically be credited to them. Without using the link, donors still also have the option to assign a donation to a specific team member, to ensure credit goes to the correct party.
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
Creating a member profile 👤
Once you click the Fundraise button or link to join a campaign via a direct link, you'll be asked to create a Givebutter login. 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 out the details for your login 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 this web address to receive credit when other people make a donation because of you!
Creating multiple team member logins 👪
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.
Using multiple email addresses
If you have access to multiple email addresses (such as work and personal, or parent 1 and parent 2, etc.) this can be a simple option for signing up on behalf of multiple team members.
Using 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. firstname.lastname@example.org
Second profile – add "+1" before the @ symbol, ie. email@example.com
Third profile – add add "+2" before the @ symbol, ie. firstname.lastname@example.org
Using this "+1" trick allows you to register the same email address multiple times, as our system recognizes them as separate logins.
