Collect Donations from Members

Setting up a donation option for your members is just like creating a membership type :)

Join It provides organizations with a few options for setting up 'Donations' -- find more information below and learn whether one of these flexible settings meet your needs.

Membership Types with 'Open' Pricing 

One of the most popular options on Join It is for organizations to create Membership Types that allow the member to define how much they pay for the membership. 

Organizations will also commonly name this Membership Type to be something like "Alternative Donation". 

To set this up, create a new Membership Type and enable the 'Advanced Settings' to select the 'Donation' pricing type.

Use Our Default ('fixed') Pricing and Multiple Options

Another alternative is to offer multiple 'tiers' of fixed Membership Types that are labeled as Donations. 

One of the benefits with this approach, is that you can set these Membership Types to automatically re-bill (which isn't available with the 'open' pricing approach). 

If an organization sets up and offers multiple Membership Types for donations, they'll often use the 'direct link' option and sometimes 'hide' the different membership types from their profile. 

Leverage our Integration with Kindful 

Lastly, another approach is to manage your memberships and donations in different systems that seamlessly connect. If you're interested in two integrated, but 'best in class', platforms -- then you can leverage our Kindful Integration (see this article). They do a really nice job of setting up donation campaigns, and you will be able to track as your members contribute.
