How to send a pre-populated online donation form to a donor who has pledged to give a specific amount

With Smart Donations, it's easy to send a donor an online donation page with the donation amount already populated with the amount the donor has pledged to give. Here's how to do it:

1. Get Your Link

Find the link to your fundraising page. You may have it saved as a bookmark in your browser, or somewhere in your email inbox or outbox. If it's not there, you can find in in the Nonprofit Member Admin Portal. Sign in here. If you're fundraising for a campaign, use the link to your Campaign Page. The same method will work.

2. Add This to Your Link

Once you've gotten your hyperlink, add this to the end of it:

?override_amount=<amount>

For example, if a donor has pledged to give $1,000, you would add:

?override_amount=1000

If you'd like to send a link pre-populated with a donation amount and have that amount turned into a monthly recurring donation, add this to the end it:

&recurring=true

For example, if a donor has pledged to give $500 every month, you would add this to the hyperlink:

?override_amount=500&recurring=true

3. Visit The Pre-Populated Page

Go to the pre-populated link by copying and pasting it into your browser to ensure that it works. If it doesn't make sure that you are using the exact code phrase seen in step two. If it still isn't working, contact us by email or call us at 1-917-877-0533.

4. Send the New Link To Your Donor(s)

After you've tested your page, send it via email to the donor(s) who have pledged to give that amount to your organization.

That's it. Now, go ahead and do it on your own to bring in those pledged dollars!
