We know how important your mission and goals are to your organization. That's why we've made it easy and simple to create impact areas, specify donation amounts, and publish these on your donation forms.
When you use these tools, you can let your donors know how their money will be used and keep track of donations made to your impact areas.
What are Impact Areas?
Impact areas are a way to demonstrate to your donors how their generosity can help in a tangible way! It gives your donors the power to understand more about your organization and feel more connected to all of the great work that you're doing.
Impact areas are also used to determine the donation dollar amounts displayed on your donation forms - by editing the donation amounts within the impact area, you can control what dollar amounts are displayed on the form.
Below is an example of a donation page with 4 impact areas in the "Donate To" section. Once an impact area is selected by the donor, the donation amounts are displayed in the "Donation Amount" section for them to choose from.
Managing Impact Areas

On the "Manage Impact Areas and Donation Amounts" screen, you will see your existing impact areas.
Note: When you view your impact areas, you'll see one called Where it is needed most. This is your default impact area - a general category that indicates that a donor did not contribute to a specific impact area or fund.
