There are countless benefits to using Custom Fields with your fundraising campaigns, events and donation forms.

Fortunately, we’ve made it easy to collect additional information from your donors, attendees, members, and more — fully-integrated with our world-class payment form.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

  • With several bullets

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
