GiveSignup donation websites and forms allow donors to send e-cards to their honorees.
If a donor selects the Send an E-card option, the e-card is sent automatically--no action is required for your nonprofit.
GiveSignup also offers the ability to allow donors to enter the name and address of an honoree so that your nonprofit can mail them a physical card or acknowledgement of a donation made in their honor. With the physical card option, your nonprofit would be responsible for mailing out the cards using the information available in the Donation Dedication List report.
When you enable Tribute Information, the donor will be able to select the option to send a card to their honoree when they make a donation. When the option is selected, the donor can enter the mailing address where they would like your nonprofit to send a card. Please note that if you enable this feature, your nonprofit is responsible for mailing a physical card to the honorees.
To enable the Ecard or Mail a Card feature for your donation website, go to Donations >> Donations Setup on your Donation Dashboard and click Tribute Information.
You can toggle on one or both of the Mail a Card and the Ecard option. (The Ecard option is automatically enabled for all donation websites). For Mail a Card, you are able to enable and enter a custom prompt. In this example we use the text:
Honor someone special with your gift. We’ll mail a card to your honoree or their loved ones if you enter their address.
You can also enable this feature for each donation form that you create.
You can pull a report of the physical cards your donors have requested when you go to Donations >> Donation Dedication List on your Dashboard.
You can easily view and export the list of cards – names and addresses – that your nonprofit should send dedication cards to.
If the donor enters the honoree's email address, the e-card will be sent automatically to the email address your donor provides.
Mail a Card
If a donor opts for the Mail a Card option, the honoree's address will be available in the Donation Dedication List report in the donation website dashboard. The nonprofit can view or export this report to get a list of addresses for mailing out cards.
