You can now allow members to voluntary contribute to your organization. To do so, you must enable the donation options when you are creating a meeting. In this article, we will cover how to:
- Update the Organization Wallet
- Enable Donations for Meetings
- Update Existing Meeting Series
- View the Member Experience
Update the Organization Wallet
Before you can enable donations for a meeting, your organization must add a bank account to the Wallet tab in the Account - Settings.
- Click to see the Wallet article for step by step instructions.
Enabling Donations for Meetings
There are two ways members can be allowed to donate to your organization:
- Donations at Registration
- Donations During or After Meeting
Enable Donations at Registration
To allow members to donate at the time that the register for a meeting, you must check the "Enable donation at registration" checkbox when you are creating the meeting(s).
Enable Donations During or After Meeting
To allow members to make donations during a meeting or immediately after the end of a meeting, you must check the "Allow donations" checkbox when you are creating the meeting(s).
Update Existing Meeting Series
If you have a meeting series already created, and you would like to enable the donation feature at registration, during the meeting or after the meetings, you can do so by editing the meeting series.
Log into your account and click on the Organizations tab, then click Manage Organizations. On your organization tile, click the Manage button.
You will be brought to the Manage Organization page which shows the profile information at the top of the page (like your organization name, image and description) and social media links on the right side of the page. Scroll down to see the upcoming meeting list.
Find the meeting series you would like to edit. Click the 3 dots in the top right hand corner of the meeting tile, then click "Edit all meetings in this series" to enable donations options for all future meetings in the series. Please note, if you click "Edit this meeting" you will only update changes for that specific meeting.
After clicking "Edit all the meetings in this series" you will be brought to the Update Series Meetings page. Scroll down to the bottom of the page where the radio button options are.
If you want to enable donations at registration, click Enable donation at registration box. If you also want to allow donations during and after the meeting, check the Allow donations box. Be sure you click Save changes to update the meetings.
- If you click Close instead of Save changes, you will be brought back to the Manage Organization page, and no changes will be made to the meeting series.
- If you click Cancel Series, the entire meeting series will be deleted, including any registrations and data collected for who had registered. Be very careful NOT to delete the series, as all data and registration lists will be irretrievable.
After you click Save changes, you will then be brought back to the Manage Organization page and a pop up message will say "Meeting series has been updated."
