What is a Campaign goal?

Your Campaign's goal is the financial amount you're striving for in a Campaign. Both Ticket sales and Donations go towards your Campaign's goal - but Auction bids and purchases do not.

Campaign goals are completely optional - but they are required if you want to show a goal bar on your Campaign.

πŸ‘‰ FYI: General Donation Forms do not show a goal bar, regardless if you set a goal or not.

You can edit your goal at any time! When you have a goal bar on your Event or Fundraising Page Campaigns, percentage announcements will automatically post to the Supporter Feed as you progress. These automatic updates cannot be turned off, but you can hide them from your Supporter Feed at any time.

βœ… Pro tip: Editing your Campaign goal can be a really powerful motivator after you've already hit your original goal! After you hit your goal, you can create a Campaign update to celebrate the accomplishment, and then hype up your supporters to keep it going by changing the goal to a higher amount. πŸ’ͺ

πŸ‘‰ FYI: Removing your goal does not remove the automatic campaign updates from your supporter feed. You will need to manually hide those if you desire.
