A classic donation form is an essential for nonprofits. It should be present on your website to collect donations all year round. This form is typically used for evergreen, general donation campaigns that don't have a specific fundraising target. 

With donation forms you can...

  • Accept one-time, monthly or annual donations 
  • Collect monthly membership payments or dues
  • To accept sponsorship payments 

Here's an example of what a donation form looks like.

Donation Campaign Form

Add a fundraising target while creating your donation form to make it a donation campaign. This form type allows you to share your fundraising progress on a thermometer and has a public donor list available. 

Use a donation campaign to...

  • Share your fundraising target and list of donors 
  • Launch a short term fundraiser such as a holiday drive, GivingTuesday campaign, etc. 
  • Fundraise for a specific person, cause or project

Here's an example of what a campaign donation form looks like.

Note: Once you create a donation form without a campaign target, you cannot add one retroactively. Similarly, if you create a donation campaign, you cannot remove the thermometer or the donor board after creating the form.

Peer-to-peer campaigns are great for making the most of your donor networks and increase your fundraising outreach initiatives. Get teams and individuals involved in your campaign by allowing them to create their own fundraising page to support your campaign! 

Note: If you create a peer-to-peer form with a registration process, an event form will be created simultaneously to track registrations. You can edit this form in your My forms section after creating your P2P campaign form.
