Organization admins can now activate a setting that allows for your members to 'add on' an additional donation on top of their Membership Dues during check out.
How to activate
This feature was launched on 15 Dec 2021, and it is currently activated by making a request to the support team at Join It (either chat up or use firstname.lastname@example.org).
How it works
Once this setting is activated, then there will be an additional panel on the checkout (and renewal) pages that ask for an additional donation. See screenshot below.
This additional donation field will display on all Membership Types for the Organization.
Frequently Asked Questions
