Looking for a fast and easy way for people to support your organization before, during, or after an event / fundraising campaign? Look no further than Scan-to-Give QR Codes, powered by Givebutter.

In less than five minutes you can take your fundraising efforts to the next level by linking custom QR codes to a two-click donation page (see Collect), a social team fundraising campaign (see Fundraise), or even a ticketing/registration page (see Events), all through the Givebutter Platform.

How it Works

Simply navigate to the Sharing tab of your Campaign, and click Print QR Code.

Print your code to display IRL or save it as an image to display on a monitor. Now anyone can scan your newly generated QR Code with their phone camera to go straight to your Givebutter campaign!

Try it for yourself! Hold your smartphone camera up to our test code:

Marketing Materials

The addition of a QR Code is a great way to enhance your promotional collateral, so donors can navigate to your Givebutter page faster!

Here are a few examples where QR Codes can be effective:

  • Printed promotional materials like flyers, postcards, brochures, product packaging, table tents, posters or banners
  • Digital advertisement boards, screens or websites
  • Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter banner or profile picture
  • Stickers, name tags, t-shirts, window-clings, or business cards

Common Use Cases

  • Presenting a campaign QR Code on the cocktail table centerpieces at a Gala
  • Including a campaign QR Code in a magazine advertisement
  • Distributing reusable bags with your logo and campaign QR Code as promotional swag at your event
  • Projecting a campaign QR code on a screen or monitor during an event
  • Printing and posting flyers around campus
  • Displaying a campaign QR code on a booth, table, fair, trade show, or equivalent

User Spotlight

We Bee Spelling is a live comedy game show and nonprofit fundraising event. Imagine a late night variety show meets a spelling bee. There's a live house band, comedian hosts and all sorts of interactive mini-games that get the entire audience involved. All the events support different philanthropic causes including education, youth mentorship, human rights, community building, social injustice, poverty, and the arts.

At this year's 2nd Annual Diabetes Training Camp Foundation Benefit, they set up these QR codes so people at the event can support spellers (team members) by simply pointing their phones at the codes – which opens their member link donate in seconds. ⚡️


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.

  • 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.
