Step 4: Create Your Donation Page

This is the fourth and final 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.



Creating a donation page

After you've logged in to Kindful, go to Settings, then Basic Settings. On the third tab, you'll find Donation Page. This will be where you can create your primary donation page.

Below is what the Donation Page Settings look like.

Through the rest of the article, we'll explain how to set up each piece of your 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.
