This article explains how to create Crowdfunding teams directly from Groups of contacts in Kindful.
Kindful Crowdfunding (our peer-to-peer feature) are a powerful way to leverage the personal reach of your supporters. Adding new team leaders (or captains) to any of your open Crowdfunding campaigns is simple.
You can add a team leader by doing one of the following:
- Direct them to your public URL and have them sign up on their own
- Invite team leaders directly from your admin portal
- Invite (and auto-create) team leaders using the contacts that are already in Groups in Kindful
This article will describe how to do the second and third options.
Add a Team Leader from Admin Portal
Go to Crowdfunding, then select the specific one you're asking someone to join.
Select Invite new Fundraiser and a window will appear. From here you can lookup an existing contact, or create a new one.
Add a Team Leader from Groups
Alternately, you can add a team leader through the Invite Groups tab.
Go to Crowdfunding, then select the one you're asking someone to join.
Select Invite Group and a window will appear. From here you can select a group, and Send Email, inviting people in that group to make a team, or Create Teams, forming contacts from those groups into individual teams without needing them to answer an email.
Choosing to Create Teams takes the contact out of the flow, and bypasses the obstacles they may face of setting up a team. You can then supply the contact with their public page URL to share with their network!
