BRAND NEW Milestone + Incentives Features on www.extra-life.org

**New features release October 21, 2019

You have your BIG goal for your Extra Life campaign, but you also know that it takes many small steps along the way to get there. You can now enable milestone markers on your fundraising page and even designate incentive points along the way where you’ll do something (perhaps crazy) to celebrate your fundraising success. Check it out:

How To Add Milestones:

  • Click on the pencil icon next to the fundraising goal or settings tab on your fundraising page.
  • Milestones appear on your fundraising thermometer for easy tracking.
  • Hover over each milestone to populate the milestone description.
  • Milestones will hyperlink, showing your donors what each point correlates to.

How To Add Incentives

Plan to dye your hair, eat crazy hot sauce or show off your mad flossing skills to your followers? Incentives will help get the word out.

  • Click on the pencil icon next to your fundraising goal or in the settings tab on your page.
  • Incentives appear on the personal fundraising page, below enabled streams, on the right menu.
  • When supporters donate, they may donate towards one of your incentives or stick to the traditional donation process.
  • Need to mail your donor a prize or email them a game code? When they donate towards your incentive, prompt them to add in relevant fulfillment information.

Download Donor Reports

A new button has been added to the donations screen so you can download a list of your donors’ information. Use this resource to fulfill any incentives and express your gratitude to your supporters. This is a CSV file containing the following fields:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Date
  • Amount
  • Message
  • Incentive (if applicable)
  • Fulfillment Note (if applicable)

This list honors any privacy settings selected by the donor and will not display donor information that the donor has chosen to hide. Check it out:

We can’t wait to see all of your creative incentives in action. Game on!
