Using ColoradoGives.org

How to Set Up a Page:

  • If you have fundraised for SOS before, you can click “Copy Campaign” in the my campaigns tab on your account, instead of creating a whole new page.
  • Visit coloradogives.org/sosoutreach and click “Create a Fundraiser” on the right-hand side.
  • Scroll down, click “create an account” in the center of the page. Follow prompts to create your account.
  • Select the “My Campaigns” tab and hit the “Create Campaign” button.
  • Fill in the relevant information, selecting SOS as the organization, November 17 as the start date and December 15 as the end date.
  • Add photos, videos and personal content! This is your chance to get creative and share your story.
  • Set a fundraising goal – it will inspire people to help you out, and keep you motivated.
  • Create a URL that makes it easy for people to find your page. Start with “sospledge” then add your name.
  • Hit “submit campaign for approval” and you can get started fundraising!
  • After your fundraising page goes live, we will add it to our Pledge “super campaign”, where you can see how we are progressing towards our $30,000 goal.
  • To preschedule gifts for Colorado Gives Day, ask donors to select the orange “CO Gives Day” box when picking their Donation Type.
  • Contact Caitlin at ckincaid@sosoutreach.org or 970.926.9292 x 109 with any questions!
  • Tell people why SOS is important to you, and ask for their support!
