Before we begin
Before designing your Campaign, you’ll want to make sure you’ve signed up and set up your Account. Then, consider if a Donation Form is the right Campaign type for you and start a new Campaign.
Setting up your Form Campaign
Every Givebutter Campaign has a Campaign Manager that allows users to edit Campaign details from the Dashboard. To begin, navigate to the RAISE tab in the left side panel and select the Campaign you'd like to edit from the recent Campaigns list or select ALL CAMPAIGNS to see the full list.
At the top of the Campaign Manager, you'll see various tabs you can click into, as well as a place to view or copy your Campaign URL.
The DETAILS tab
The DETAILS tab contains a place for you to flesh out what your Campaign is about. You can:
Give your Campaign a title
Set an optional theme color
Add a description to your Campaign here
This will appear below the Campaign title on your Form.
The title and description will also appear on your Giving Hub if you have enabled one.
The SHARING tab
The SHARING tab provides a variety of ways to get the word out about your Campaign! You can:
Customize how your Campaign appears on social media with your SEO Settings
SEO information appears on Google searches and social media posts. The title and description will appear on Google, and the title and photo will appear on social media.
SEO title and description override your Campaign details. If left blank, the SEO settings will default to your Campaign's title and description. For social media, there will be no preview image if you don't set one here, as seen below.
⛔️ Warning: Having trouble with your SEO settings? If you've already set previous SEO settings, the link may need to be debugged to show any updated information.
The TOOLS tab
In the TOOLS tab you can manage your available payment options and add Custom Fields.
Toggle on/off accepting payments
Toggle on/off the phone number requirement
Toggle on/off the billing address requirement
Billing address is always required for card payments. But for other payments, like digital wallets, it is optional unless this is toggled "ON".
Allow supporters to pledge to pay via check and log an offline donation.
Toggle on/off Recurring Plans for this campaign
Select Recurring Plan frequency options
Select a default Recurring Plan frequency.
👉 FYI: Recurring Plans and Funds must be enabled in the Account Settings before they can be enabled on Campaigns.

The SETTINGS Tab
The SETTINGS tab is where you can manage the visibility, type, and notifications for your Campaign. You can also manage your Tips and Fees settings, create a custom Thank You message, and add Experts to your Campaign.
Publish/Unpublish your Campaign
You can only Unpublish a Campaign that has no transactions (including Offline Transactions).
Change your Campaign Type
Write a custom thank you message that will appear in supporters' email receipts
Manage your personal notifications
✅ Pro tip: Your notification settings are for the profile you are logged into. Neither you nor Givebutter can manage other profiles' notifications for them. They will need to log into their Account and manage their notifications themselves.
Toggle on/off Tips
Toggle on/off Fees
Require your supporters cover Fees
Add an Expert to your Campaign

Campaigns that have processed any Transactions, online or offline, cannot be deleted.
