There are many ways and reasons to customize your donation form to fit your needs:
Select a Theme Color
Customize your theme color to match your branding. You can choose from our list of color options, but to really enhance the look of your donation form, use your organization’s Hex Code to match the exact color of your branding.
What is a Hex Code? A way to represent a color in RGB format by combining three values – the amounts of red, green and blue in a particular shade of color.
You can use Chrome Extensions like Color Pick Eyedropper to find the specific color you’re looking for.
Other resources like https://imagecolorpicker.com/ also help identify the specific color you’re looking for.

Update Amounts on Your Donation form
Depending on your audience or event, you may want to update the amounts listed on your donation form. Some examples of events you may want to change amounts for are:
Galas: may want to increase the default amounts
Youth outreach or young alumni support campaign: may want to lower the default amounts
Fund a Need: if you’re fundraising for a specific need, for example, to provide backpacks for students, you may want to make the recommended donation amounts the cost of one backpack, two or three backpacks.
We support donations from donors all over the world; Add in as many additional currencies as you would like to to best engage with your audience. Keep in mind that if you add a goal, the goal amount will always increase in USD.
Allow Recurring Donations
We recommend allowing recurring donations to your fundraiser to increase recurring revenue to your organization. Most commonly this is done monthly, but occasionally you may have donors wish to contribute at a different frequency. We recommend reducing the options available to folks here to reduce analysis paralysis.
Enable Tribute Donations
Tribute donations are a great way to honor loved ones or make a donation in support of someone else. Loved your freshman science teacher? Make a donation to your school in honor of your teacher! Donors can email folks they donate in honor of to let them know of the gift.
Allow Donors to Keep Their Donation Anonymous or Private
Sometimes donors want to contribute, but don’t want others to know how much they contributed. Check this box to allow their amount to be public on the fundraiser page or in PledgeCam, but visible to the organizers in the Impact Hub.
