Each week, you’ll receive an email from the Powered by Hope staff detailing the offline donations you’ve received. (Donations mailed to our office rather than those you received online.) This will help you track you progress in reaching your $1,000 fund-raising goal.
It is important for you to personally add your offline donations to your Firstgiving fundraising page. (Firstgivig only allows fund-raisers to do this; we cannot do it for you.) When you receive a list of new offline donations from us each week, here’s what you’ll need to do to update your offline total and acknowledge your offline donors:
1. Log in to your Firstgiving account.
2. Click on Edit next to the page you want to work with
3. Under Page Summary on the right, click UPDATE under the Offline
4. Scroll down to the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, to the yellow box that says Amount raised offline. Put the amount in there and click on Save and Continue. You can update this total when needed. If your offline donations say “pending confirmation” — that is ok. Just ignore that and it will still show up to let your donors see everything you’ve raised.
Please help us out by spreading the word with your friends on social networks.
