If you’re running a charitable fundraiser on ColoradoGives.org, it’s important to understand how to navigate around ColoradoGives.org to manage your fundraiser. There are also powerful tools that will help enhance your fundraising efforts. Here’s how to create a user account and navigate ColoradoGives.org to find the features you’re looking for.
Signing up for a ColoradoGives.org Account
If you’re new to ColoradoGives.org and would like to create an account, click “Log in” from the navigation bar.
You have a couple of different options for how you’d like to sign up.
You can login with your Facebook account, with Google, or with your email address. Choose whatever option is easiest for you!
Facebook: When you choose to sign up using your Facebook account, you will need to log into your Facebook account (unless you’re already logged in). Click “Continue as [Your Name]” to proceed. We will access your friend list, email address, and location. We don’t post on your behalf, and we won’t have access to your private information.
Google: You can sign up easily using your Google account. Many of us are logged in to Google already (especially if you’re using Chrome), so this option makes signing up and staying logged in a snap. ColoradoGives.org will need to access your email address and public profile information. We will not have access to your emails, Google Drive, or any other personal information.
Email: This simplest option, you can sign up using your email address. Once you verify your email address, ColoradoGives.org does not need any additional permissions when you sign up with email.
Your User Profile
When you sign up for ColoradoGives.org, you’ll have a user profile page where you can track contributions and access receipts for donations, manage recurring donations, manage any fundraisers you’ve created, and add a photo and information that shows your personality to the ColoradoGives.org community.
Once you login, place your mouse over the top right user icon:
You can access your user profile in two ways from your site menu. When you’re logged in, you can click either "[Your Name]” or “Fundraising” to access your profile.
When you’re on your profile page, you’ll see your name and user avatar (which is a randomly-assigned illustration if you haven’t uploaded an original one yet). Underneath, you will see different tabs that you can toggle between.
Editing Your Profile
To customize your user profile, click the "Public Profile” tab.
When you’re editing your profile, you can upload a photo of yourself to use as your user avatar, share your location, write a short profile, and fill out a fun Q&A that helps the ColoradoGives.org community get to know you.
Your Contribution History
You can view, download, print receipts, manage recurring donations, and download annual giving statements from this section of your ColoradoGives.org account.
You’ll find your contribution history under the “Your Contributions” tab.
All of your donations will be listed under "Donations History". You can search for a particular donation using the field ranges and search bar, or you can simply scroll down.
Any fundraisers you've created on ColoradoGives.org will be listed here. To navigate to a fundraising page, click "Manage" underneath the particular campaign.
To delete a fundraiser, click the trash icon on the top right of the icon.
Your Account Settings
You can manage your ColoradoGives.org account from your "Account Settings".
Here’s what you can update or edit from your Settings page:
You can update your email address. You can only use an email address on one ColoradoGives.org account, so you won’t be able to add an email address that’s being used on another ColoradoGives.org account.
This is where you can update your password.
When you create a ColoradoGives.org account, you are automatically opted into receiving certain emails from us. You can manage the notifications you receive in your account settings.
To make donating simple and easy, you can save your credit card information to your ColoradoGives.org account, so you won’t have to enter it each time you donate. You can view which payment methods you have saved to your account here, and remove any payment methods you would like.
You can connect social media accounts, such as Facebook, Google, and Instagram accounts to your ColoradoGives.org account. This section of your settings page is where you can see which accounts are connected, and remove accounts you do not want connected to your ColoradoGives.org account.
Deleting your ColoradoGives.org Account
To delete your ColoradoGives.org account, go the "Public Profile" tab. Scroll to the bottom until you see "Delete Account".
Once you click it, it will ask you to confirm whether you want your account delete.
