Creating a Giving Group or Campaign on Charitable Impact is a great way to make a difference for a cause or charity you care about. It’s a unique and customizable social fundraising tool, allowing you to gather people together to give and launch a ripple effect for change. Watch that ripple expand as you invite more people from your circles to join. 

Enable donors to easily support your cause each month

Through your Impact Account, Charitable Impact has always offered donors the options to make monthly deposits into their accounts or to set up recurring gifts to charities, Giving Groups, or Campaigns of their choice.

If you are a Giving Group or Campaign administrator, you can take it one step further by turning on the monthly donation option, enabling supporters to give regularly and automatically.

It makes sense that it should be easy and convenient for donors to automate their giving because it simply fits our pace and way of life. We automate our bill payments, our daily reminders, and even our coffee machines. 

Adding the monthly giving feature to your customizable Giving Group and Campaign pages enables your supporters to set their contributions, then forget it. This step could help you gain more supporters and raise more for the causes you care about.

Before we get started, have you set up a monthly deposit on your own Impact Account? Doing so can mean major benefits for donors like yourself. It can also contribute to building a more thriving and sustainable charitable sector, bolstering the impact of donors.

How to set up monthly deposits for Giving Groups and Campaigns

If you’re the administrator for a Giving Group or Campaign, you must turn on the option to set up a monthly donation in your page settings, as this option is not turned on by default.

It just takes a few minutes to follow 6 simple steps

  1. Select Giving Groups & Campaigns at the top of your screen.
  2. Select the three dots to the right of your Giving Group under Giving Groups you manage.
  3. Select Edit Group.
  4. Select Basic Settings.
  5. Under Recurring Monthly Gifts, check the Recurring Gifts box.
  6. Select Save Changes.

If you have a Campaign, it’s a very similar process. Find more info here: Enable Monthly Gifts to a Campaign

Then, spread the word and encourage your supporters to set up a monthly donation toward your cause. Remember, you can quickly share your Giving Group or Campaign through everyday channels like email and social media.
