This month's release includes several highly requested fundraiser page customizations and campaign site enhancements. Oh, and a new WordPress plugin!

What's New

Fundraiser & Team Page Layout

Peer-to-peer fundraiser and team page layouts have been improved to highlight both donation and share actions as well as the fundraiser's own custom content.

Fundraiser Page Customization

Fundraisers can now add images, videos, and rich text to their fundraising pages. Fundraisers can also update their page's top banner image. You can activate these options from your site's peer-to-peer settings.

Page Templates

We've added new prebuilt page templates to the campaign site editor. Start your next donation, event, or campaign page with a professionally designed template. View new templates at the template gallery.

WordPress Donation Form Plugin

If you prefer a code-free donation form implementation, Funraise's WordPress plugin is for you! Add donation buttons and forms to your WordPress pages using shortcodes.

Coming soon!

Fundraising Commitments

Soon, you'll be able to require fundraisers to raise a specific amount and then charge their payment method for any remaining amount they were not able to raise through their page.

Giving Portal App - Subscription Management

Now, donors can manage their donations and access yearly donation summaries in Funraise's Giving Portal App. Soon, donors will be able to edit their recurring subscription details and payment methods in the Giving Portal App.

Donors Cover Fees

Funraise will be implementing a Donors Cover Fees model this year. This update will guarantee an effective Platform Transaction Fee rate of 0% for qualified transactions.


Feature Sunsetting Reminders

In an effort to deliver the world's best fundraising platform, we sometimes have to say goodbye to features or integrations that aren't up to par or that have superior alternatives. We want to let you know about a few items that have an end-of-life date set. If you have any questions about these changes, contact your Success Manager.

  • Amply integration: The Amply integration will be sunset on July 1, 2021. This integration can be replaced with Funraise's Double the Donation integration. For those of you using Amply today, your Success Manager can help you transition.

  • Trends: Trends will be sunset on July 1, 2021. Trends is only used by organizations without Fundraising Intelligence. We'll be removing Trends to further invest in Fundraising Intelligence as Funraise's premier reporting tool.

  • Yearly Donation Summary Email Automation: The Yearly Donation Summary Email Automation will be sunset on August 1, 2021.

  • Legacy Sites: Legacy Campaign Sites (any site created before January 8, 2021) will be sunset on Jan 1, 2022.

  • Operations Tip: Funraise's Operations Tip feature will be superseded by Donors Cover Fees. Donors Cover Fees functionality will be released sometime in 2021.
