Before setting up your Campaign, you’ll want to make sure you’ve set up your Account by navigating to “Account Settings” in the top left corner of your Dashboard. Your Account Settings act as a template for any Campaigns you create, so it’s always a great place to start. Note: any template details that you add in the Account Settings, such as a Cover Photo, can be overridden at the Campaign level.

Campaign Details

Every Givebutter Campaign has its own Campaign Manager and customizable features that can be managed from your Dashboard

To edit your Campaign Details, click on the Campaign Name you’d like to edit, found below your Account Name on the left side of the Dashboard.
