Active & Inactive Campaigns

  • Campaigns coming from CanadaHelps.org that are Inactive won’t be automatically marked as Inactive in the DMS.
  • Since you might still be receiving recurring donations from these Inactive CH.org Campaigns, the same Campaign in the DMS needs to be Active to receive those donations.
  • If you don’t have any other recurring donation for a CH.org Campaign, you can mark the DMS Campaign as Inactive.

Important: If you delete a campaign originally created in your CH.org account, it will not be deleted in your DMS. This action will be overridden the next time we sync your CanadaHelps data into your DMS.

Instead, you must modify this CanadaHelps-campaign in your DMS and mark it as Inactive.
