Are you ready to harness the potential of your events for a greater purpose? Welcome to our comprehensive guide on leveraging your events to make a real difference. With our Causes feature, you can effortlessly collect and track donations while shining a spotlight on the causes that matter most to you and your audience. Join the ranks of over 3,000 event planners from renowned organisations who have already discovered the power of making a positive impact. Here, we'll walk you through the simplicity and effectiveness of giving back through your events.

Step 1: Access Your Event Overview

Begin by navigating to your event builder and locate the Event Overview section where you can view your basic event information. Within this section, you'll find the option to toggle the "Causes" Event Tool, which you can add to your set of event tools for utilisation.

Step 2: Access the Causes Screen

Once you've added the Causes Event tool, you will be automatically redirected to the Causes feature. If you ever need to return to this screen, you can easily do so by clicking on the Causes tool located on the left-hand side of the screen. This provides convenient access to your cause management settings.

Step 3: Adding a Cause

To introduce a new cause into your event, click on the "+ Add Cause" button located in the upper right-hand corner. This action initiates the process of adding a cause to your event's platform.

Step 4: Naming the Cause

In this step, you should input the name of the charity, association, or organization that represents the cause you are adding. Make sure the name accurately corresponds to the cause and is easily recognisable to your attendees. This helps create a strong association between the cause and the supporting organisation.

Step 5: Set a Default Contribution Amount

In this step, you can specify a default contribution amount in USD currency for the cause. If you choose not to set a default contribution, you can simply leave the field blank. The default contribution amount, when set, will be displayed as the blue amount button under the contribution suggestions for easy reference by your attendees.

Step 6: Set a Donation Amount Target

In this step, you can establish a specific target amount for donations to your chosen cause. This target amount serves as a goal for your event, motivating your attendees to contribute and reach a collective milestone. The cause donation amount will be tracked and displayed in real-time, allowing you to monitor progress toward the goal.

Step 7: Configure Contribution Suggestions

In this step, you can set pre-determined donation amounts to suggest to your attendees. These suggestions serve as gentle guidance, helping your audience make contributions aligned with your cause. While these preset amounts are convenient, attendees still have the flexibility to enter a custom donation amount if they prefer. This feature empowers you to tailor the donation experience to your audience's preferences while keeping the giving process straightforward and accessible.

Step 8: Donation Closure Configuration

In this step, you have the power to decide when the Causes feature will stopnaccepting donations. You can make this decision in two ways:

When the Event Finishes: Choose this option if you want the Causes feature to automatically close when your event officially ends. It's a hassle-free way to align donation timelines with your event schedule.

Specific Date and Time: Alternatively, you can specify a precise date and time for donation closure. This gives you the flexibility to set a custom deadline that suits your event's needs.

Selecting the appropriate closure method ensures donations are in sync with your event's goals and duration.

Step 9: Craft a Compelling Description

Now, it's time to create a captivating and informative description for your event's cause. Offer a comprehensive overview of what your event is all about. You can enrich your description by incorporating videos and images that showcase the cause's impact, mission, or past achievements.

Additionally, if your event features special guests or speakers who are passionate about your cause, be sure to mention them in the description. A well-crafted description is a powerful tool for engaging your attendees and inspiring them to contribute to your cause. It's your chance to convey the significance and relevance of your event and cause.

As you proceed with this step, consider what aspects of your cause and event are most compelling, and highlight them to attract and resonate with your audience effectively.

Step 10: Amplify Your Cause with a Header Image

Take your cause to the next level by uploading a captivating header image that represents your cause. In this step, your header image will also serve as the sponsor banner. Ensure that your header image is in either PNG, JPG, or GIF format and precisely sized at 1200 x 630 pixels. This optimised image will make your cause stand out and highlight your sponsors effectively.

Step 11: Easily Share Your Cause

To share your cause with the world, just click the copy icon next to the cause URL. This allows you to quickly paste the link on your social media platforms, website, or in emails, making it simple to spread the word and garner support.

Congratulations! You've just unlocked the potential to make a significant impact with your events. By following these steps, you can seamlessly integrate causes, set donation targets, offer contribution suggestions, and enhance your cause's appeal with captivating header images. Sharing your cause has never been easier, thanks to the simple copy-paste action. With these tools at your fingertips, you have the means to engage your attendees in making a difference, fortify community bonds, and bolster your brand image. Giving back through your events is not only effortless but also a purposeful way to create positive change in the world. So go ahead, make your events a force for good!
