Introducing Key Enhancements to CanadaHelps’ Custom Donate Now!

Customizable donation forms give you branding flexibility, allowing donors to see your organization’s logo and look from start to finish. CanadaHelps’ Customizable Donation Forms are based on best eCommerce practices to maximize donations to your charity.  Starting today, have access to 5 new features to maximize your online fundraising success!

1. New Charity Branded Receipts

Charities have asked, and we’ve listened! As part of our new enhancements, we have rolled out new charity branded tax receipts, which donors will receive automatically after making a donation. Your charity’s logo will now show first along with the details of the donation to your charity. The receipt is flexible, and made to handle both one-time donations sent immediately after the donation is made, as well as monthly donation receipts, which are sent as a single tax receipt after the calendar year.

2. Customizable Charity eCards

Did you know that 8% of one-time donations through CanadaHelps are donations made in honour or in memory of someone, where the donor has opted to send a free eCard? Now, you can create and upload your own eCards to your Customizable Donation Forms – using visuals that reflect your brand, mission and organization! You can choose to display only your custom eCards, or also choose to display them along with the various eCards and categories CanadaHelps has created for every occasion.

3. Increased Branding Options

You’ve always had the ability to modify the background of your Customizable Donation Forms, choosing the background colour or choosing to use a specific image for your background. Now, you have even more choices and options! Customize the text colour used in title bars, the background colour of title bars, and choose the accent colour you would like applied to the ‘Complete Donation Now’ button, as well, that accent colour will be used to highlight items selected by the user when completing your donation form.

4. New Embedded Donation Branded Header Templates

If you haven’t already embedded your Customizable Donation Form right into your website – now is the time! Allow your supporters to donate to your charity without leaving your site. And, take advantage of our 5 new embedded donation header branded templates that allow for additional options (such as image, image size and placement, headline and additional copy, etc.) to ensure your page best suits your organization’s needs, and works visually within your site.

5. Set up One-Time & Monthly Suggested Donations

With Customizable Donation Forms, you can include suggested donation amounts. Now, instead of the same suggested donation amounts applying to one-time and monthly donations, you can choose separate values for each! This is the ideal way to ensure you are maximizing the gifts you receive, by catering suggested donation amounts for one-time and monthly separately. Providing suggested donation amounts is a great way to grow your donation revenue, especially when you let the donors know the tangible impact of the specific donation amount.

 BONUS: Improved Charity Admin Experience

We’ve also updated the look and feel of the Donate Now tab in your Charity Admin Account to ensure a smooth, seamless and more intuitive experience for when you are creating Customizable Donation Forms. 

With these key enhancements, there has never been a better time to get your charity set up with Customizable Donation Form(s) to ensure your organization is taking advantage of these new key features.
