Double the Donation Integration Guide

If you're currently a DonorPro user or considering DonorPro as your new donor management and fundraising software, you'd be wise to include matching gifts in your development strategy going forward.

As was recently announced, DonorPro and Double the Donation have partnered to incorporate a matching gift plugin into the online donation process and across all your digital fundraising channels.

If you're interested in mulitplying your donations without doing any extra fundraising, this guide is for you! Simply follow the steps below to set up Double the Donation inside your DonorPro portal:

DonorPro's Relationship with Double the Donation

DonorPro is a leading nonprofit software company that provides award-winning fundraising and donor management software for nonprofits all over the world.

Double the Donation is a leading provider of employee matching gift data and tools to nonprofits.

This guide was put together to help organizations who use DonorPro’s fundraising software incorporate Double the Donation’s employee matching gift plugin into their fundraising pages. DonorPro and Double the Donation are two separate and unrelated companies.

Requirements:

At risk of stating the obvious, only organizations that have accounts with both DonorPro and Double the Donation can use the integration.

There are two ways to integrate Double the Donation’s plugin with DonorPro’s software and your general website:

1. Within the donation process (using DonorPro)
2. Across your other fundraising channels (using DonorPro and your primary website software)

This integration guide will give you step-by-step instructions for both methods.

1. Within the Online Donation Process

There are five easy steps for incorporating the plugin into the donation process. Once you complete the following five steps your donors will be able to access company specific matching gift information directly during the donation process.

Donors will now be able to type in their company name and determine if their employer offers a matching gift program:

When a donor selects their company they’re presented with everything they need to submit a matching gift to their employer including forms, guidelines, and instructions.

2. Across Your Digital Fundraising Channels

4. Our searchable plugin will automatically load

Step #2: Direct donors to your dedicated matching gift page across your broader fundraising efforts.

-And many other locations
