Donation form gadget

So that visitors to your site can donate to your organization, you can add a donation form that integrates with your payment system and contact database.

The donation form displays all the donation fields you have set up. One of your donation fields is the Amount field, a system field that cannot be renamed or deleted. If the visitor viewing the donation form is not logged in, common fields will appear on the form as well. For more information on setting up and using donation forms, see Donation forms.

To enable online donations, you need to set up online payments.

To track the success of your fundraising efforts, you can add a donation goal gadget to a page on your site. You can also embed a Wild Apricot donation form on another website using widgets.

For instructions on inserting, moving, and deleting gadgets, see Gadgets.
