Campaign Site Settings & URL
Campaign settings are critical to successfully create a site. We’ve streamlined this process like never before and have even provided the ability to customize your own SSL certified site for free. Although Funraise makes it easy, you are still in the realm of website creation and that requires a bit of patience while the Internet fairies get to work.
Once you save your new site, it will take 15-30 minutes for this site to appear live.
No worries, as soon as you click to save, you will be taken to the site editor and can begin customizing your site immediately.
This will be the name of your site and will auto-populate your site URL field. You can independently edit these fields as well. Your Campaign Site URL can not be edited once it has been saved, but your site name can be edited any time. Your Campaign Site name will also be the name of the Donation Form that is automatically created with each Campaign Site.
We suggest keeping it short and including either the name of your organization or the name of a campaign that your supporters will recognize. A recognizable URL can go a long way to create trust with donors. We’ve got you covered with SSL security already : )
Your campaign goal can be surfaced on your campaign site and donations on this page will count towards this goal.
Campaign End Date
Time is a crucial aspect of fundraising campaigns. Currently, the “Campaign end date” selection is just for your records. In the future, we will add features to communicate the time left on a campaign. If you want us to start building that sooner, let us by rating and commenting on this article ; )
Campaign Site URL
Your URL is auto-populated with your “Campaign name” settings, but it can be edited independently. Your URL can not be edited once it has been saved. The purple X indicates a invalid URL. Spaces and many symbols are not valid. A green checkmark means you’re good to go!
Advanced: Custom Domain
Custom domains are an advanced feature that requires several additional steps. Please contact us to set up a custom domain or learn more. In most cases, you will want to leave this field blank.
