Donating to a Crowdfunding campaign vs a Team

If a donor gives directly on the Crowdfunding root page for the Crowdfunding campaign you've created, that transaction will not be attributed in a way that moves the needle. In creating a Crowdfunding campaign, you chose which Campaign you'd like it to funnel into. A donation directly to a Crowdfunding campaign will be attributed to the Campaign that Crowdfunding campaign is funneling into.

To make that transaction go toward a Crowdfunding campaign, it will need to be attributed to a specific Team. After someone has donated directly to it, you can edit that transaction and change the attribution to go toward a specific Team within that Crowdfunding campaign.

You can choose any team you'd like, or create your own team that you use to funnel some of these generic transactions into.

How to attribute a recurring transaction to a team

To get recurring to display on a Crowdfunding team page, you need to go to donor's profile and click on the Payment Info tab. From there, you need to Edit the Recurring Transaction itself, and make sure it is pointing to the proper campaign, Crowdfunding campaign name, and team. 

Can a donor give anonymously?

Yes, when donors give via a crowdfunding page, post-donation, they have an option to A) leave a note in support that will display in the recent donations ticker and B) make their gift anonymously. Making the gift anonymously means that the name is hidden on the ticker on the team page, but your organization will get the proper information for things like tax receipting.
