PERSONALIZING YOUR CLASSY FUNDRAISING PAGE
Once you have created your personal fundraising message you can begin to build your personal webpage through our fundraising platform - Classy. See sample Classy campaign page here.
Choosing your campaign type
Peer-to-peer (most common): Allows your supporters to donate directly to your campaign, or to create their own sub-fundraising page in support of your goal. Recommended for most Team Leaders
Crowdfunding: Allows supporters to donate directly to your campaign only. Recommended for Team Leaders who will target a small group of major donors.
Event: Allows supporters to donate directly to your campaign, and to RSVP for your event. Recommended for Team Leaders who expect 50+ event attendees, and who expect to raise more than 50% of their goal through an event.
Creating your Campaign Page: FH will create a Classy page for your campaign based on the campaign type you choose. We will make you the administrator of the page and provide you with the link to the public facing Classy campaign page for you to use in all communications. Your Classy page will also be accessible on the “donate” page of the BLOCK Project website.
