Fundraising takes many forms. We understand that you may receive checks or cash to count towards your fundraiser’s goal, too. While ColoradoGives.org does not process these donations, we can help you display them in your fundraiser total.
For this reason, you can use the Offline Donations feature on your fundraising page. Please note: This is simply to act as a display feature. These funds are not processed through ColoradoGives.org.
Adding an offline donation
To add an offline donation, go to your fundraising page, select the Donation Icon, then click “Donation Report” on the left-hand dashboard.
You’ll see the donation report for your fundraiser. Click the “Add offline donation” text with the grey plus icon next to it.
The offline donation input box will appear. You will be able to enter key information such as the donor name, email address, the source (ie. cash, check, corporate, match, etc.), and notes about the donation. The information provided will be viewable in the downloaded offline donations report.
Be sure to click “Complete Donation” to add it to your display!
[The External Tracking Id is an optional value that can be provided to assist in reconciling and tracking your offline donations with other internal systems. This can be a string of any characters or text and will be included on your offline donation reporting. Text limit is 255 characters.]
The offline donation will be added to your fundraiser’s display thermometer and donor timeline for supporters to see.
To download a detailed report of your fundraiser's donations, click "Download this range" at the top of your donations report.
Editing/Removing an Offline Donation
It’s not possible to edit an offline donation. But, that’s OK! You can just delete the old one and add a new one in its place.
To delete an offline donation, go back to “Donations” > "Donations Report" on the left-hand dashboard. Edit the report range to the desired date, then find the donation listed in your donations report (hint: It will say “Offline Donation” below it).
Click the gray X to the right of the donation. A message will ask you to confirm that you want to delete the offline donation:
Then, just add a new offline donation with the amended information by following the steps above.
