If you want to learn how to make a successful nonprofit organization, it all starts with your donation process.

Users can create their own donation campaign with an event page

Users can create a general “Give” campaign which accepts donations of any amount (Set the donation to a $0 value under settings). This is addressed in further detail so keep reading! 


Using memberships or membership levels

Users have the option to set a minimum donation level.

For example, your minimum level could start at a $25 donation. The next level up could be $50, $100, $200, etc. By giving each tier it’s own name, promoters can create different levels that come with a variety of benefits. 


“The Ultimate Donor” could be the membership name for the $200 donation slot.

If someone selects and donates to this membership, they could be awarded with some merchandise, a branded t-shirt, priority purchasing, private event access, discount/PROMO codes to future events, etc.

Service fees and payment processing

*** Because of the current pandemic, COVID-19, almost all upcoming events have been cancelled, projected revenue loss and multiple companies are struggling for income. We want to help by waiving all service fees and extending this offer until June 26th, 2020. 

Purplepass is offering promoters the chance to set up and collect donations for their organizations online without service fees. 

To take advantage of this offer, promoters need to use their own merchant account or PayPal, as Purplepass cannot do processing for this case.

Before going live, send a confirmation message to so customer support can confirm that your account is exempt from all service fees.
