Optional Goal



Last updated: 
July 19, 2020

As discussed in Givebutter's ultimate fundraising success guide, setting a realistic goal and showing progress early on can be critical to your fundraising success. On Givebutter, you have the option as to whether you'd like to set a fundraising goal at all, and you'll keep all the funds you raise regardless of whether or not you hit that target. You can also increase or decrease your fundraising goal, and withdraw funds raised, at any point during your campaign.

If you'd like to enable pledge donations or make your campaign an all-or-nothing format (i.e. Kickstarter / Indiegogo), please contact us.

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.

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.
