Almost every organization has some sort of website. And if that organization raises money, collects donations, or has events, chances are they need a way to direct potential donors and attendees accordingly. But how are you supposed to keep all of this up to date and organized in a simple, coherent way?
That's where Giving Hubs come in! Scroll down for more information!
What is the purpose of Giving Hubs?
A Giving Hub is a central webpage where all your Givebutter campaign information exists. They provide donors with a high-level overview on what your organization is currently working on!
In addition to general information about your organization, just as a mission statement, Giving Hubs also highlight on your ongoing campaigns. Donors can click on these campaigns and donate to them directly, or they can browse to see who has created individual fundraisers on the behalf of your organization!
How do you enable a Giving Hub?

What will happen to the old version of the Giving Hub?
With the release of the new Giving Hub, Givebutter will be slowly removing older versions of the Giving Hub over July and August, 2020. Starting on July 15th, 2020, all organizations using the old version of the Giving Hub will be notified and given one month to upgrade to the paid version. If your organization does not want to upgrade, your Giving Hub will be removed from your dashboard 30 days after being notified.
See below a screenshot of the older version of the Giving Hub that will be removed within the next month. If you have a Giving Hub that has a layout similar to this, you can expect to receive an email notification about the update at some point in July 2020:
What happens if I don't want to upgrade my Giving Hub?
If your organization does not want to upgrade, your Giving Hub will be removed from your dashboard 30 days after being notified. All your other Givebutter campaigns will remain as they are. You will not lose access to any Givebutter Collect, Fundraise, or Events pages that already exist in your dashboard. Only your Giving Hub page will be removed.
