Collect donations on your event page
This is a feature that event promoters have been asking about for years. Previously, you could only add pre-set donation tiers to the shopping cart page. We heard feedback that this was too late in the registration process to be effective, and that the pre-set tiers did not work for everyone.
We now offer the ability you to list one or more donation types on your page. Here’s an example:
Just like a ticket type, you can give the donation box a title and a subtitle. This allows you to let your prospective donors know exactly where their money is going.
This is a great way for sports teams and other volunteer organizations to collect donations at the same time they are selling tickets to games or events. Click here to see a live example of an event registration form with donations.
The Vaulter Club in California is using this feature for an upcoming clinic featuring world champion track and field coach Scott Kendricks.
Kendricks coaches world-class athletes and will share what he’s learned with the Vaulter Club community. The donations box on the event registration page allows patrons to make a donation to keep the club moving forward and support its other activities.
The Vaulter Club provides poles and vault pits for its members to use. The club also offers private lessons and travel to events in other areas. Member dues and donations help make these activities happen while keeping the cost low for everyone involved.
