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 Fundraising Page is the right Campaign type for you and start a new Campaign.

Setting up your Fundraising Page

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.
