Add an offline contribution to your campaign – it’s FREE!
Because some people still really love cheques…
You might receive contributions from another source – cash, cheques (or ‘checks’ for our American friends), sponsor contributions, etc. – that you’d like to count toward your online goal, and perhaps send a tax receipt to (registered charities/non-profits only).
This is simple and free to do! Two great qualities.
STEP 1 – Click ‘Transactions’ in your campaign’s sidebar menu.
STEP 2 – Click ‘Offline contribution.’
STEP 3 – Enter the amount of the Offline Contribution, the contributor’s name, a message (if they wanted to post one), and the Date & time you received it, then click the Add contribution button.
You can also bulk-upload via CSV file:
You may do everything with an offline contribution as you can with an online one: email tax receipts and thank you letters, re-attribute, share, make anonymous… with one bonus: you can delete them.
This isn’t a proper financial record since a transaction isn’t taking place; it is simply in-name only so your supporters can see a true representation of how much this project has raised. Therefore, these transactions are editable and deletable.
Try your best to ensure it is done right, however, and not change it multiple times. Trust and transparency are still important.
To delete, click the ‘X’ under the Action items in the line of that contribution.
