Creating Team Fundraising requires several steps in different areas of Blackbaud NetCommunity. The initial Fundraiser is setup through the Fundraiser part in NetCommunity.  You must log into NetCommunity with supervisor rights or rights to create pages and part.

 

     
    • Designate individuals for your participant, supporter, The Raiser's Edge user, and Blackbaud NetCommunity Web Designer roles.
     
    • Plan your fundraiser and educate everyone involved about your plans. During the planning phase, determine the team and level hierarchy for your fundraiser.
     
    • The Blackbaud NetCommunity Web Designer creates necessary parts, pages, and email needed for the Fundraiser part type. For example, if the Fundraiser Page Elements you want to use for the Fundraiser do not exist, the Web Designer creates them.
     
    • The Blackbaud NetCommunity Web Designer creates and designs the Fundraiser in Blackbaud NetCommunity.
     
    • Participants (solicitors) or individuals sign up on your Web site as team captains or team members.
     
    • Participants solicit peers via an email appeal. The email includes information about your organization, the fundraiser you are hosting, and a link to the participant's page on your site.
     
    • Supporters, people who respond to the participant's email, visit your Website and often become motivated to participate. A supporter can sign up as team captain of a new team or team member and can make a donation on your site. These people become constituents in The Raiser's Edge database.
     
    • A Raiser's Edge user downloads transactions to The Raiser's Edge. Sign-ups download to either link the participant to an existing constituent record in the database, or a new constituent record is created for the participant. Fundraiser transactions download to The Raiser's Edge to store solicitor and team member information.
     
    • If the site user signed up for an event, event registrations then downloaded.
     
    • If a solicitor updates a record for an individual in which they are assigned to, a profile transactions is downloaded.
