This is the third step in our Getting Started Guide.
Now that you've entered your basic settings into Kindful and have connected a payment gateway, it's time to create your donation page so your donors can give.
Setting up your main donation page
After you've logged in to Kindful, go to Fundraising, then Main Donation Page. This will be where you can customize your primary donation page. Here is what the Main Donation Page Settings look like:
Through the rest of the article, we'll explain how to set up each piece of your main donation page, and show you a preview of where that element will show up.
Choose from either a full-screen background image to show off your vision, or select a marquee image if you need more text to share your story.
Either choice will display a preview on the right side of the screen, as shown below.
The various layouts will look like this.
Enter a description
Enter in a short phrase about the purpose of your organization and why you're seeking donations.
This text will live at the top of the donation entry box.
Set default donation amounts
These are the amounts your donors can choose from when making a donation. They can also enter in a custom amount if they prefer. You have up to 4 options you can set.
Upload your image
Upload the image from your computer to show as either your background or marquee image, depending on your earlier selection.
Choose a theme color
Select the color for your donation page headers here.
Copy donation page URL
Select Copy URL to copy the weblink of your donation page into your computer's clipboard. You can then paste the link onto your website, email, or social media accounts to share with others.
