Step 4: Add Your Bank Account
Expand the third tab on your Big Give Dashboard to add your organization's general information, organization representative, and bank account information to become verified to accept donations on the Big Give platform and to receive your donations through ACH direct deposit transfer. Once this information is complete click "Save" and your organization should be verified to accept donations within 2-3 business days.
Step 5: Add Donation Levels
Expand the fourth tab on your Big Give Dashboard to add different donation levels to your Big Give profile. Here you can set a custom amount, description, and photo for each donation level. From this tab, you can also opt-in to collect phone numbers and addresses from your donors when they give through your Big Give profile.
Step 6: Add Your Thank You Message
Expand the fifth tab on your Big Give Dashboard to add a custom thank you message that your donors will receive immediately after making their contribution to your organization on 5/4. Here you can add an image or video (Adding a video will replace any image you add) and a custom message. Once you've completed your thank you message, click the "Save" button.
Step 7: Invite Your P2P Fundraisers
Expand the sixth tab on your Big Give Dashboard to add P2P fundraisers that will support your organization on 5/4. Adding P2P Fundraisers is optional for Big Give, 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 Big Give profile.
Once your profile is complete each section should have a green check mark next to the heading. Once you see 6 green check marks on your Big Give Dashboard, you'll know you're ready for the big day!
