Welcome to Givebutter!

We've put together a series of articles to get you up and running, but always remember that you can send us a message anytime. Whether you're creating an account for the first time, or creating an account with an existing profile, thank you for being here. Let's jump in! πŸ˜„

Signing up for a new account

There are two different ways to begin the signup process:

  1. Click Sign Up anywhere on the Givebutter website.

Under Organization, you'll be asked to register as one of the following:

  • Nonprofit – if you're a tax-exempt organization with an EIN

  • Other – if you're another type of organization

  • Individual – As of December 28, 2022, individuals may only donate to or fundraise on behalf of a nonprofit or other organization and cannot create their own fundraising accounts.

Depending on the option you choose, you'll be asked for some additional information. If you're registering as a nonprofit, but your EIN isn't found in our system, please ensure that you have an active profile with GuideStar, which is a nonprofit database.

Under Personal, you'll be asked for your name and email, and you'll set your password. This creates your User Profile, which you'll use as your login.

πŸ‘‰ Note: There is no need to share a login with someone else - your information can remain private, and you can add more Admins and Editors to run the Account with you later.

Click Sign up to finish the process, and you'll be redirected to your Dashboard. You can get started by customizing your Account and starting your first campaign!

After you've signed up, you'll have automatically created an Account (the organization you are representing) and a User Profile called My Profile (your personal information). If you need to manage or view your profile, you can click your profile picture in the top right corner of the Dashboard and select My Profile from the drop-down.

Creating a new account with an existing profile

Every user on Givebutter can be a member of unlimited Accounts. You can create, manage, and switch between Accounts without having to set up multiple users and passwords!

Follow these directions to create another Givebutter Account when you already have an account.

  • From your Dashboard, select the dropdown arrow next to your account name.

  • Then click Create new account. This will direct you to the same signup process shown earlier in this article.

  • Once you've completed setup, you'll be able to toggle between your Accounts by clicking the dropdown toggle on your Dashboard!
