Organizer Instructions

(Steps for creating a successful campaign)



  1. Sign up for a Fund-Team.com account by clicking on this link:
    https://www.fund-team.com/home/organizer_signup

  2. Create your fundraising campaign by clicking on this link and filling out the form:
    https://www.fund-team.com/organizer/create_campaign
    You can leave the default values for most fields and edit them later if you wish. However, you will want to complete all fields before your campaign start date to help maximize donations.
    Once you’ve created the campaign, you will see a sign-up link you can forward to your team members in Step 3.

  3. Schedule a sign-up meeting with your team members. To prepare for this meeting, you will need to provide the following 2 items to your team members:
    • They should print and fill out this blank donor list and add 12 to 15 names & emails, then bring it with them to the meeting:
      https://www.fund-team.com/home/print_blank_donor_list
      You can forward the link to them, but it’s better if you print it out and hand them all a copy (one less step for students).
    • You will also need to forward them the sign-up link found on your dashboard from Step 2. You can send it via email, text, GroupMe, etc. Team members will need to click on this link in order to join your fundraiser.
    • Please let us know your exact meeting date/time so we can provision extra web servers to handle the large temporary spike in traffic caused by the meeting.

  4. Hold your team sign-up meeting. It should take about 20 minutes. Walk the students through the following student instructions, using a projector if you have one available:

    The students will sign up using their phones or any connected device. Large groups (50 or more) can overwhelm a school Wifi, so they should turn off Wifi on their phones during the meeting.
