    22. 22. Tips for Matching Grant Success  Clearly communicate to donors that they must look for the x2 money icon to ensure their donation is being matched.  Ask board members or others to put up a matching gift as their way of contributing – and then ask them to promote to their friends/colleagues  If you have multiple matching opportunities, keep an eye on them. You will want to close a page once the match has been met so that donors only contribute to current matching opportunities  Consider sending out 3 update emails staggered throughout Give to the Max Day – providing an update on your progress and encouraging donors to give throughout the day  Use the match to create a sense of urgency/excitement as part of your social media outreach  Offline donations can be added under the “Donations” tab, but don’t count towards the Give to the Max Day leaderboard 22
    23. 23. Customizing a Thank You Message 23  Thank You Video  Videos pop up immediately after a donor makes a donation.  Thank you message  Add a few lines of text to make the thank you email more personal.  Consider adding special thank you messages for Give to the Max Day

    26. 26. Creating a Project Page If you are an admin, your fundraising page will be created as a project.
    27. 27. Organization Page vs. Project Page Organization Page  Simple. Avoid confusion for donors by having just one page on which they could donate to your organization.  No set goal or fundraising progress ‘thermometer’ on page or in search results Project Page  Tell an additional story with text, photos, videos, and suggested donation levels  Set a specific dollar goal and display ‘thermometer’  May create clutter or donor confusion  Great for highlighting different fundraising objectives (i.e. backpacks vs. senior services)

    31. 31. What happens when a donor makes a donation? • The organization’s administrator immediately receives an email notification which includes the donation amount and the donor’s contact information (if it is not an anonymous gift). • The donor immediately receives an email from Razoo/GiveMN which is their IRS receipt . While the email thanks the donor, it is a thank you from Razoo/GiveMN, not from the organization. We strongly encourage the organization to follow up with a thank you note shortly thereafter. • Donations are paid out the 10th of each month for the prior month’s donations. 31
