We added to thevalues that we hold dear
and against which every nonprofit membership application is reviewed for alignment.Previous values are shown in italics below; new values are in bold. Our member nonprofits must not:
• discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation or military status in any activities, programs or operations;
• advocate against or deny the rights of women;
• advocate against or deny the rights or existence of anyone on the basis of their sex, gender, gender expression or sexual orientation, including transgender and gender nonconforming people;
• advocate against or deny the rights of historically underrepresented groups, including Black, brown, AAPI and Indigenous people;
• advocate against or deny environmental or social sustainability practices, especially with regard to renewable energy; land, water and air rights and use; and the growing climate emergency;
• advocate for the sale, ownership and/or civilian use of assault weapons, weapons of war, high capacity magazines, automatic weapons or any mechanism that can convert a firearm into an automatic weapon;
• disseminate hate speech or dangerous speech, promote or incite violence online or offline.
Our values are one reason nonprofits may choose Give Lively over other fundraising platforms.
feature for Event Ticketing CSV exports is functioning optimally again.This feature grants shared access to data contained in the CSV, even with people who don't have Give Lively admin access. For a brief time, imports of Event Ticketing data into Google Sheets resulted in an error. Learn how to access event attendee data using the “Shareable CSV” feature.
We have introduced a new URL structure to pages in the
Nonprofit Admin Portal.This takes into account the new left-hand navigation and page names. Redirects ensure that any previously bookmarked pages still work. Take a brief tour of the Nonprofit Admin Portal.
A new ACH/bank payment tool is the latest feature to be supported by our
second-generation payment form
.This is part of the gradual transition to a payment form aligned with our upgraded system. While the donor is guided through a very similar ACH giving experience on both generations of form, the first-generation form continues to use Plaid and the second-generation form now relies on Stripe Financial Connections. Learn about our new payment form and Stripe Financial Connections.
The UTM source for Event Ticketing purchases reported in donor data CSVs downloaded from the Nonprofit Admin Portal is once again accurate.For a short time, this data wasn’t being captured. Learn how to use UTM codes to track fundraising campaigns and how to download donor data from the Nonprofit Admin Portal.
Links in the body copy on Core Profiles and Campaign Pages are once again underlined and blue.Review how to edit the page description of Core Profiles and Campaign Pages.
We’ve updated the alert when test emails of thank-you messages are sent.The message now reminds users to “click ‘Save’ if any changes were made.” Prior to this update, when a test email was sent from the Core Profile or Campaign Pages sections of the Nonprofit Admin Portal, the alert stated that changes had yet to be saved, even if there were no changes. Learn how to create, edit and test-send a thank-you message when setting up your Core Profile page or Campaign Page.
Second-generation payment form: The text in thank-you messages on donation receipts is now left aligned by default but ultimately uses the alignment chosen in the text editor, provided the donation was made through a second-generation payment form. Thank-you messages on donations made via first-generation payment forms continue to reflect the alignment chosen in the text editor. Learn more about our new payment form and how to send a customized thank-you message to donors and ticket purchasers.
The Nonprofit Admin Portal has been relaunched with a new left-hand navigation bar.We now use the full names of Give Lively products and introduced a
Data Reportssection that may not yet be visible to all nonprofits. This new section will only display if a nonprofit has received donations through Charity Navigator’s Giving Basket and/or is a participant in the data reports beta group. Take a brief tour of the Nonprofit Admin Portal.
Campaign Pages are the latest product to be supported by oursecond-generation payment form
.This is part of the gradual transition to a payment form aligned with our upgraded system. Give Lively now supports two generations of payment forms: a first-generation form and a new second-generation form. Both payment forms serve equally well, so there is no reason a nonprofit should favor one more than the other, although over time the second-generation form will become the standard for all Give Lively-powered fundraising pages. Nonprofits will see a
New Payment Formannouncement in their Nonprofit Admin Portal as soon as the second-generation form can be applied to any of their fundraising pages; at the moment it is only available on Core Profiles fundraising pages and Campaign Pages. Learn more about our new payment form and the features it currently supports.
When downloading a donor data CSV report, a new message explains that the request is processing.The note also advises that once the CSV is ready, a download link will be emailed to the address associated with the Nonprofit Admin Portal user account. Learn how to download donor data from the Nonprofit Admin Portal.
Donation receipts now include the logo displayed on the Core Profile fundraising page or Campaign Page through which the donation was made, provided the second-generation payment form is being used. Test receipts will also include the logo. Learn more about our new payment form and how to send a customized thank-you message to donors and ticket purchasers.
Team Fundraising pages are again accounting for all new donations, including recurring ones.Prior to the fix, some recurring donations had not been applied to the totals of the Team Fundraising pages through which they were made, even though the donations were completed without any issues and were reflected in the associated Campaign Page tallies. The fix resolves the problem going forward and has updated all previously impacted Team Fundraising pages. Learn how to enable Team Fundraising.
Team Fundraising donation totals and the progress meters that display them now take into account changes in team membership.When a new peer-to-peer fundraiser joins a team, the amount that person has raised prior to joining is added to the team total; conversely, when a fundraiser leaves a team, the team total no longer calculates that person’s funds raised toward the total. Learn how to set up Team Fundraising.
