Through Stewardship’s peer-to-peer feature togetherweraise, we make it simple to raise funds for all of your summer adventures. With togetherweraise you can raise money for mission trips, retreats, and summer camps. Your church or organization creates a parent campaign that makes it easy for each participant to Join a Team creating a spin-off campaign that they can send to their friends and family. You can track easily the funds raised for each individual while the total funds are funneled back to the parent campaign.
Parent Campaign- The first step is for your church or organization to create a parent campaign. From the parent campaign, each participant will then Join the Team to create their spin-off campaign.
To start, click on the Products tab in EGS and then click on togetherweraise.
From togetherweraise’s homepage, click on Login/Register at the upper right-hand side of the page and create a username and password for your account.
Next, click on Create a Campaign.
First, give your campaign a title and then click on Create.
On the next page, you can follow the steps on the left-hand side menu to set up your campaign.
On the Get Started page you would input your, description, and select the category your campaign falls under.
Next, you will want to think about your fundraising goal and the start and end date of your campaign. You can also decide if you want to allow for additional team members and if you want to display your top teams and donors.
Next, you can customize your campaign’s look and feel by choosing a different background and text colors. When you are finished with this page click on Save and Continue.
On the next page is where you can add images and YouTube videos for your campaign.
We have made it easy for you and show you the preferred dimension of the pictures you will want to use. You will simply choose your picture file and then click to upload the picture to your campaign.
You can add a picture for your campaign’s profile picture, banner, and your profile picture.
You can also add pictures and YouTube videos for your campaign slides. These picture and videos help describe to your donors what your campaign is all about. When you have added your pictures, click on Save and Continue.
Set Up Funding
On the next page is where you need to set up funding. You will create an account with WePay so that the funds you received will be processed and deposited to your account.
You can also choose who will pay the processing fees but either giving the donor a choice to cover the processing fees or for the processing fees to come out of the campaign’s proceeds.
You can also add a suggested donation amount for your donors. Once you are finished with this page, click on Save and Continue.
On the next page under registration, you can add survey questions for your donors. You can choose how your donors will respond to your question, decide if it is a required question, and decide where the placement of the question will appear on your page.
On the same page, you then are giving multiple options of ways that you can use your campaign buttons and links. You can simply copy and paste these buttons or links to put them on your website, share on social media, or to send to your donors in an email. When you are done with this page click on Save and Continue.
It is so important to express to your donors how thankful you are for their donation. On the next page, we give you a couple of options on how to say thank you to your donors.
You can add a perk, such as a free t-shirt if they give over a certain amount.
You can also customize a thank you email that will be sent to your donor after they donate. Then click on Save and Continue.
On the last page, we encourage you to let your donors get to know more about you. You can add a tagline to your profile and input your social profiles. When you are done with this page, click on Save and Continue. Then you will be taken to the next page where you can Publish your campaign.
Campaign’s Homepage- After you click on Save & Continue, your campaign will be published, and you will be taken to your campaign’s homepage. This is where you will be able to see your total amount raised, where donors can donate and see the details of your campaign, and where you can easily share to your social media sites.
Joining a Team- The second step of the Mission Trip fundraiser is for each participant to create a spin-off campaign. From the campaign’s homepage, you will encourage each participant to click on Join the Team.
They will then enter in the name of their spin-off campaign. You can encourage your participants to use their name in the title. For example, John Smith’s Mission Trip Fundraiser. This will be helpful when it comes time to track the donations that come in.
After they have entered their title, they will be asked to either register with togetherweraise or to simply log in.
After they are logged in, they will be able to see all the Parent Campaign’s details copied over to their campaign. We would encourage the participants to set their own fundraising goal, upload their pictures and YouTube videos, customize their thank you letter to their donors, and update the About You profile page.
Once the participant’s campaign is published, encourage them to share it to their social profiles and to their friends and family.
