The easiest way for someone to become a fundraiser for your event is to click on the Become a Fundraiser button. If you choose to include it, the button appears on your event's homepage as well as every fundraiser's page (see image below).
The button is not "on" by default, but we'll be glad to add this customization for you if you would like it. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us you would like the fundraiser button turned on.
With that tab open, you'll see a list of your existing fundraisers. To add a new fundraiser, click the green plus sign . The Attendees Editor will pop up.
- If your fundraiser was referred by someone else, select that person's name in the Referral box.
- Add your fundraiser's first and last name, company if applicable, email address, and phone number.
- If you want your new fundraiser to appear on the leaderboards, click the checkbox. Since this is an online event, all attendees are virtual. Select that from the drop-down menu under attendee type.
- If you created teams, select the appropriate team name from the group name drop-down.
- Click Save.
If you would prefer to email a link enabling potential fundraisers to join, you can send them to https://checkout.swell.gives/eventname/register. Eventname is a placeholder here. To make the link work for your event, substitute the URL you set during the event creation process.
