YouTube integration

Get even more YouTube donations with Givebutter’s user-friendly fundraising pages, livestreaming features, and donor management tools.

When considering the landscape of social media for nonprofits, platforms like Facebook and Instagram may come to mind first, but as the second most visited website in the world (Google is first), YouTube also has a whole lot to offer changemakers. 

YouTube Giving and the YouTube Nonprofit Program, for example, allow organizations to set up a YouTube fundraiser and accept donations for their cause right from the platform. 

But regardless of its massive social reach, YouTube donations fall short when it comes to tracking and analyzing donor data, monitoring conversions, and integrating with other essential tools for nonprofits. 

With Givebutter’s free, all-in-one fundraising solution, organizations can enjoy all the benefits of YouTube giving without any of the limitations. 

How to get donations on YouTube that take you further

Creating a fundraising campaign directly with YouTube leaves nonprofits with limited options for integrating with other tools and tracking supporter information. 

But with Givebutter, your donation form, fundraising page, or event is fully integrated with world-class nonprofit marketing and engagement tools and robust donor management features right from the start. 

With your fundraiser set up on Givebutter, you’re ready to make the most of what YouTube has to offer: 

  • Make it easy to give 🎁 If you're wondering how to add a fundraiser to YouTube videos, you've got plenty of options. Set your nonprofit organization up for success by adding your Givebutter campaign to your video descriptions and embedding it as a clickable link within in-video cards, end cards, and end screens.
  • Drive more donations 💸 Add your YouTube video content seamlessly into your Givebutter donation pages, emails, and even text messages to showcase your impact and encourage more contributions.
  • Build momentum ⚡ Connect with supporters in real time and bring in more donations by hosting a YouTube livestream directly to your fundraising page or event.
