Step 1: Navigate to Your Admin Dashboard
Once you have logged into GiveGab and are on your personal "Home" page, click "Manage" next to your organization. This will take you to the admin dashboard for the selected organization. If you are administrator for multiple organizations participating in #iGiveCatholic, you can select the one you would like to manage.
Step 2: Navigate to Your #iGiveCatholic Dashboard
From your Admin Dashboard on www.givegab.com, click on the "Giving Days" section highlighted in the left-hand navigation bar. This section is an archive of all present and past Giving Days you've participated in. After you've registered for the most recent #iGiveCatholic, you'll be able to select the "#iGiveCatholic" Giving Day dashboard this year to complete your profile. If you need to switch organization profiles within GiveGab from here, the blue Navigation bar at the bottom of the screen will help you get around!
Step 3: Copy Existing Profile (optional)
If your organization has participated in #iGiveCatholic before, you will have the option to copy over a previous profile, or create a new profile. You will see a blue, "Copy This Profile" button, and the page the information will be copied from (small arrow) to the left of the button.
Once you have selected this option, all the information from the profile you copied will automatically be placed onto your current profile! Feel free to make any changes you'd like to refresh or update for the new year.
Step 4: Add Your Organization's Information
Expand the first tab on your #iGiveCatholic Dashboard to add your organization's logo, website URL, tagline, and up to three causes that best represents your organization. Once you've completed this information, click the "Save" button.
Step 5: Add Your Story
Expand the second tab on your #iGiveCatholic Dashboard to add a cover photo, YouTube or Vimeo video, set a goal, and customize your organization's story. Once you've completed this information, click the "Save" button.
Step 6: Add Your Bank Account (if your arch/diocese/foundation is not collecting gifts on your behalf)
If your diocese is NOT collecting gifts on your behalf, follow these steps: click "Add Bank Info" or "Confirm State Fundraising Compliance" to add your organization's general information, organization representative, and bank account information to become verified and accept donations on the #iGiveCatholic platform.
Once this information is complete click "Save" and your organization should be verified to accept donations within 2-3 business days. Note: You will receive a communication from GiveGab if we need more information from to finalize your verification.
Step 7: Add Donation Levels
Expand the fourth tab on your #iGiveCatholic Dashboard to add donation levels to your #iGiveCatholic profile. Here you can set a custom amount, description, and photo for each donation level.
Note: The donation minimum for #iGiveCatholic is $25. Please do not create a donation level lower than this, as donors will not be able to give this amount online.
Step 8: Invite Your P2P Fundraisers
Expand the sixth tab on your #iGiveCatholic Dashboard to add P2P fundraisers. Adding P2P Fundraisers is optional, but can help expand your reach to new networks and help acquire new donors through your current supporter base.
Here you can add fundraisers, message fundraisers, and remove fundraisers. You can also enable/disable the ability for fundraisers to sign up right through your #iGiveCatholic profile.
Once your profile is complete each section should have a green check mark next to the heading. Because your donors will be receiving a unique #iGiveCatholic receipt, you do not need to complete the “Thank You” tab. However, we recommend that all organizations should be sending out a personal thank you to donors within 1 week of the giving day.
Once you see all green check marks on your #iGiveCatholic Dashboard, you'll know you're ready for the big day!
