Giving Group settings

Only Giving Group administrators can edit the settings for a Giving Group.

Basic settings

Group name

You can change the name of your Giving Group; however, please note that changing your group name will also change its URL.

Privacy

Choose whether you want your Giving Group to be private or public. 

Private groups: A private Giving Group is closed to everyone except group members, and you have to be invited by an administrator to join it. 

Public groups: Anyone can find and join a public Giving Group, and all members can share links to the group page (for example, through Twitter, Facebook, email, etc.).

Recurring monthly gifts

Enabling the Recurring Gifts checkbox will provide people with the option to give to your group on a monthly basis. Learn more about activating recurring gifts for your Giving Group.

Giving Group description

Add a description to your Giving Group to tell people what your group is about and encourage them to support your efforts. Note that there is a 300-character limit for group descriptions.

About the group

What’s the group’s purpose?

Expand on your group description with an inspiring note about your purpose. This will help people decide whether to give you their support.

How can people help?

Describe the different ways people can help. Do you want them to give money, come to an event, tell their friends, or do something else? A clear request can make it easier for people to support your group in the ways you'd like them to.

About the group’s organizers?

Introduce yourself, any other organizers, and your backgrounds. People will be more likely to offer their support if they trust the people behind the group.

Customizing your Giving Group

Group photo

Create a Giving Group goal

Setting a group goal gives you a target to reach for. You can always change your goal at any time.
