Below are the steps to customizing your OC Nonprofit Central profile! Please review the required profile fields are listed here on the OC Nonprofit Central site.

Step 1: Navigate to Your OC Nonprofit Central Dashboard

From the Home Tab of your Admin Dashboard, click on the "OC Nonprofit Central" tab on the lefthand side to access your OC Nonprofit Central Dashboard and edit your profile.

Step 2: Add Your Organization's Information

Click on the tab "Add your Organization's Information" to add your organization's logo, website URL, and up to three causes that best represents your organization.

As one of the first things a donor sees on your profile, your logo should be current and represent your brand. If your profile was migrated and you have a rectangular logo, the import most likely cropped the image. Please review your logo and re-upload if necessary so that you can size the photo appropriately.

The causes will be one way a potential donor can search for your organization so make sure the causes you select best represent your organization.

Once you've completed this information, click the "Save" button.

Step 3: Add Your Story

Next, click on the tab "Add your Story". Here, you can update your photo, tell your organization's story and add a video link. This is the first page that someone will see when visiting your profile so please add at least a paragraph to describe your organization.

Your profile has been pre-populated with a default cover photo. We suggest that you change this cover photo to one of your organization's favorite photos! To do this, click the Select Image button and upload a photo!

You can also add a YouTube or Vimeo video. Just copy the link into the Video URL field. Please only enter the video link (URL) and not the embedded code.  

Once you've completed this information, click the "Save" button.

Step 4: Add Your Bank Account

Next, click on the tab "Get Verified to Collect Donations" to check off if you are state compliant, and to add your organization's general information, organization representative, and bank account information.

This is necessary to become verified to accept donations on the OC Nonprofit Gives platform and to receive your donations through ACH direct deposit transfer. Once this information is complete click "Save". Your organization should be verified to accept donations within 2-3 business days.

Step 5: Add Your Thank You Message

Click on the tab "Add a Thank You Message" on your Dashboard to add a custom thank you message your donors will receive immediately after making their contribution to your organization. 

Here you can add an image or video (adding a video will replace any image you add). If you add a video, please enter the YouTube or Vimeo link and not embedded code. To add an image, click the Select Image button.

Once you've completed your thank you message, click the "Save" button.
