This article gives an overview of the Golden integration with Kindful, and shows you how to connect Golden to your Kindful account.
Overview of the Golden integration
The sync between Kindful and Golden has a bit of a roadmap to it, laid out as follows:
You (as the org) use both Golden and Kindful. You post Opportunities (volunteer events) on Golden.
Your volunteers will use Golden, not Kindful (their info in Golden will automatically be added to your Kindful account).
Volunteers respond that they're Down to Volunteer (they sign up to volunteer on Golden).
A contact is created if one does not exist in Kindful already. Otherwise, current contacts are updated with new data.
After the volunteer event occurs, the volunteer's contact record is updated in Kindful:
- Status of Passed Background Check is added to Kindful (Yes/No)
- Total hours volunteered by a volunteer is added to contact records in Kindful
- Volunteer Rating is added to contact records in Kindful
- A Volunteer Note is created in Kindful associated with the contact
- A Campaign is created linked to the Volunteer event
- The Campaign can consist of Non Cash Gifts as created by Golden Volunteer events
