Exporting your Campaigns into a CSV file is an excellent way for you to analyze your Campaigns' history. You can download this data, open it into a third-party software like Excel or Google Spreadsheets, and then create tables and graphs out of it!
How to export Campaigns into to CSV
Before we get started, make sure you are logged into the Givebutter account with the login with the email address you'd like to receive the export to. You cannot export anything on Givebutter to an email address you are not logged in with.
First, navigate to your Givebutter Dashboard.
Under RAISE select ALL CAMPAIGNS.
In the right corner, click ACTIONS, and then EXPORT from the drop-down
Select EXPORT again in the popup.
Navigate to the email address you use to log into Givebutter with, and in a few moments, you will receive a message from Givebutter saying that your export is ready to download. In the email, click the DOWNLOAD button or copy and paste the provided link into your browser.
The CSV file will then download to your device. You can check your Downloads folder and click on the file directly to open it in a file reader like Excel or Numbers, or you can import the data directly to something like Google Sheets.
👉 FYI: You must be logged in to Givebutter to view/download your CSV for security purposes. If you’re having any trouble opening your link, be sure to double-check that you are logged in.
⛔️ Warning: Make sure your email client is opening a browser window that is logged into Givebutter, as your email client may have redirected you to a different browser than you usually use. If this is the case, you can paste the link into the browser you are currently logged into, or you can change your default browser on your MAC or PC.
What does the Campaign export file contain?
The CSV file export contains the following information:
id – The campaign ID.
type – The type of campaign.
title – The title of the campaign.
url – The full URL of this campaign.
slug – The slug used for this campaign.
goal – The campaign's donation goal.
raised – The total amount raised that is displayed on the campaign page. This value includes offline donations, matching donations, and any custom starting value that our team may have entered into your campaign. This should NOT be used for any financial reconciliation.
supporters – The displayed number of supporters that paid out to your campaign. Similar to the one above, this should NOT be used for any financial reconciliation, as the total can be manipulated from the true number.
balance_raised – The amount of money raised via payable channels. This excludes offline donations, refunds, disputed transactions, and pending pledges.
balance_fees_covered – The amount of fees covered by supporters on the balance_raised.
balance_payable – The amount of money still avaliable for payout (balance_raised - balance_fees + balance_fees_covered).
balance_paid_out – The amount of money that has already been paid out.
created_at – The date/time this campaign was created in UTC.
