Donate Button Instructions

This page contains the donation button setup. There are two ways to make a Donate button. 

Method 1

One way is to use the commerce donation settings. You would use this method if you have a Donate button that is different from the standard one, such as if there is a special fundraiser for, say, sweatshirts.

PLEASE NOTE: If you want to make changes to the standard button, edit the one on this page rather than creating a new one.

  1. Edit the page where you want the button..
  2. Roll over the left side of the page to find the insertion point, and click it.
  3. In the popup options, scroll down to the Commerce section and select Donation.
  4. Here you can edit many options for the button such as the button text, layout, amounts to include on the order form, additional fields needed (e.g., “In Honor of”, etc.)

Method 2

Use this method if you are simply adding a button with the same settings as the standard button on the Donate page and in the sidebar. Instead of setting up a new donation button (with amounts and special fields) every time you need one, you just need to link to the secure order page created by the existing standard button.

  1. Click the Donate button in the sidebar. It opens to the donation page. Copy the URL from that page.
  2. Edit the page where you want the button..
  3. Roll over the left side of the page to find the insertion point, and click it.
  4. In the popup options, choose Button. 
  5. For the Clickthrough URL, paste the URL you copied in step 1.
  6. Select Small for the button.  Usually you will also want to center it.

Here's the current standard button.
