Follow the prompts to connect your Stripe account so that you can receive online donations and have them automatically recorded for bookkeeping! You can also use the fundraising pages to track offline donations. 


After Stripe is connected, how do I add a Fundraising Page in my MonkeyPod?

After you set up your Stripe account, when you expand the FUNDRAISING menu from the main navigation bar, the Online Fundraising section will now include "Fundraising Pages", "Donation Options", and "Donation Forms (embeds)"  links, as shown in the image below. 


When you click on "Fundraising Pages" you will see a list with all of the fundraising pages currently in your MonkeyPod. You can keep an eye on fundraising efforts in this tab easily because MonkeyPod automatically calculates % raised to the goal and the number of gifts received per fundraiser.

To add a new Fundraising Page, click on "Add a Fundraising Page" to start you will need to define four important pieces of information for all fundraising pages: Title, Description, Dates, and the fundraising Goal.

The amount raised will be automatically tracked for all online fundraising campaigns.

What Basic Info do I need to set up in my MonkeyPod?

  1. Title - The title of the page
  2. Description - The text that appears on the fundraising page. This is where you describe your fundraising campaign. Be sure to check out our community articles to make the most of your fundraising!
  3. Access URL - The URL you will give out for people to donate to your amazing organization.
    1. In the example below, the URL would be https://monkeypod-theater.monkeypod-demo.io/give/testingpage
  4. Goal - Here you can set any fundraising goal for this campaign.
  5. Prompt Social Sharing - This allows you to place icons on the fundraising page to share the page via social media.
  6. Go Live on - This is the date that the fundraising campaign is "live" or becomes active and open.
    1. !!!If you choose a date in the future, remember, your page will only be accessible through the page preview link, the link you chose above for the access URL will not be live yet!!! 
  7. End on (optional) - If you know that the campaign will have a closing/end date, set that to track time remaining.

After this, set up your Visual Design

The visual design for the page allows you to have a banner image behind the text. We recommend trying a couple of different images to see what might work. Something with no words, that is wider than it is long, and something related to your campaign will likely work the best!
