1. Use the Add Image button to upload and store images that you would like to have appear on your profile page.
TIP: Images not uploading? Make sure they’re at least 400px x 400px, but no larger than 2000px x 2000px. Supported formats include JPG, PNG and GIF.
2. If you have them, add URL links to videos about your charity.
NOTE: Images and videos must be added here first. Then go to the Page Visuals tab to decide where exactly on your profile page they should appear.
1. Use the drop down list to select from the images and videos you’ve previously added to your Media Library.
2. Add one high impact main profile image and select other visuals as part of your media carousel to showcase the work you do.
TIP: For best results, add at least five items to your media carousel.
3. Assign an order to your different media and a caption for donors to read when expanding the image or video.
TIP: Don’t see the image or video you want to add? Make sure you’ve first uploaded it into your Media Library. Still Having trouble? Contact us!
Add testimonials showcasing what people are saying about your charity, such as press and media reviews, client endorsements, or donor, staff, and volunteer testimonials.
TIP: A quick copy and paste of any testimonials you already have on your website will help optimize your profile!
Encourage larger gifts or help donors who aren’t sure how much to give by adding donation presets.
NOTE: Donors will always be able to enter another donation amount if they wish.
1. Add up to 4 suggested donation amounts for one-time and monthly gifts.
2. Add a corresponding impact statement to help communicate the tangible impact a certain donation amount can have.
