Please note: The Fundraising Hub feature is currently in beta and is undergoing changes and improvements! If you have suggestions, please let us know at email@example.com.
Looking for one place to show overall fundraising progress for a group of events or forms? Then you're looking for a Fundraising Hub! You'll need to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a Fundraising Hub. To view your new Fund Hub, head to My Qgiv.
Scroll down to the Fundraising Hubs section. Click Manage Hub to access its settings.
You'll land on the dashboard by default, where you can see an overview of donations, constituents, and forms.
Let's take a look at each area of the Fund Hub.
You'll see the following three sections:
Fund Hub Information
In this section, you'll configure some basic settings.
In the Internal Hub Name field, enter the name you’d like displayed in the control panel and in reports.
In the Hub Name field, enter what you’d like displayed on the public-facing Fund Hub page.
In the Hub Status drop-down, you can set the Hub’s status to Active, Disabled, or Closed.
If a Fund Hub is set to disabled, it is accessible, but visitors will see a message stating it’s been disabled. You can customize this message.
You can set a Hub Goal in this field.
If you’d like to redirect visitors to a new URL if they attempt to access your Fund Hub after it’s closed, you can toggle on this option.
Once you do so, you’ll see a field in which you can enter the redirect URL.
In the Forms & Events to Include box, click the field to display a list of your Qgiv forms and peer-to-peer events. You can select one, some, or all of your forms and/or events.
In the Search Settings section, toggle on all of the options you’d like to make searchable on the public-facing Fund Hub page.
In the Advanced Settings section, you can customize the URL of your Fund Hub. The grey text is there by default. Make sure you finalize this before sending out any links to your Fund Hub! If you change the URL after sending out links, anything you’ve already sent won’t work!
Make sure you save your settings when you're finished!
Within Social Settings, you'll set up URLs for your organization's social media accounts and set an image and description for Facebook sharing.
Social Media URLs
In the Social Media URLs section, enter the URLs of your organization’s social media accounts. These will populate on the public-facing Fund Hub so visitors can access your social media pages.
In the Sharing Content on Facebook section, you can upload a thumbnail that will display when someone shares your Fund Hub. Please note that Facebook may choose to share a different image or take up to 48 hours to show your upload.
In the Facebook Description section, the text you enter will be displayed when someone shares your Fund Hub.
Don’t forget to save your settings when you’re done!
Now let’s take a look at your customization options in the Fund Hub Builder.
Fund Hub Builder
Click the Fund Hub Builder button in the upper-right corner of your screen.
The Fund Hub Builder opens by default to your Fund Hub Home Page.
You can navigate to other Fund Hub pages by clicking on the drop-down menu at the top right of the screen, located in the Fund Hub Builder toolbox.
The navigation, banner image, event avatar, footer, and primary color scheme will be constant throughout all of the event pages. Once you make those changes on the Fund Hub Home Page, they’ll be carried throughout all of the other applicable pages automatically.
By default, your Fund Hub will have a horizontal navigation bar. If you intend to have a larger list of navigation items, or just prefer the look, you may want to change to a vertical navigation panel. The vertical navigation will be at the top left of your Fund Hub page. This can be done in the Theme tab of your Fund Hub Builder toolbox. In the Theme Layout section, you’ll see both options listed.
You may also click the Plus Sign icon to add an additional navigation item.
In either horizontal or vertical format, you may hover over any existing navigation items to make an edit. Once you click Edit, you can also delete the item by using the trash can icon.
If you're adding an item, you’ll be prompted for the Link Label and to indicate to where you’d like the new navigation item linked if you chose Custom URL from the Links To drop-down.
If you choose Site Page from the Links To drop-down, you’ll see a list of default event pages.
Click Add Link once you've configured your new navigation item.
Once you start making changes, you'll see the Save Page button in your Fund Hub Builder toolbox become animated to remind you that there are unsaved changes. It’s best to click that often to be sure you’re not losing any changes.
Header, Footer, and Avatar
Next, let’s take a look at your header and footer configuration options. For the banner image up top, you’ll want to design or choose an image that is at least 1200 by 465 pixels. Click on the Change Banner Image button to browse your files for an applicable image.
Once you choose an image and it has been uploaded, you can drag the image to adjust its positioning or zoom in or out depending on the image size. When you’re happy with your image, click the I’m Done Editing button.
You’ll notice the gear icon is visible in the header area and will control if the event avatar and information are visible in the header, as well as control if a link to a participant's/team's classification is visible on fundraising pages. You can also change the text in the search bar. If you’d like to change how participants’ names are displayed, you can also control that here.
Next, you’ll want to hover over the Your Logo circle on the bottom left of your banner.
From there, you’ll click to browse for a smaller event avatar image you'd like to use. A logo will work great here!
Now let’s scroll down to the footer. A footer image is optional but can be uploaded the same way we just uploaded the header image. The recommended width of your footer image is 1200 pixels.
You’ll notice the gear icon is visible in the footer area and will control if you’d like the banner positioned at the top, center, or bottom of your footer image.
If you’d prefer to use custom HTML to build out your header or footer images, you have that option in both of those sections by clicking on the icon to the right of Change Banner Image buttons.
Main Content Area
The content area comes pre-populated with widgets we think might make the most sense for your event. You may want to add or delete some of the default options.
Clicking on the gear icon on any widget will display its configuration options. These will be different for each widget depending on its role within the event. You’ll notice that in some widgets you can choose which forms you’d like the widget to pull from. You can select all forms, or pick from the menu.
Clicking on the trash can icon will delete the widget from the page.
By hovering over the top of a widget, you can click to drag and drop it to an alternate location within the page.
Fund Hub Builder Tool Box – Widgets Tab
Widgets can be used multiple times with different configurations by simply dragging and dropping them from the Event Builder toolbox into your content area. Also provided to you is a Search Widgets box that allows you to quickly find what you're looking for.
Types of Widgets
This widget can be used for adding a block of formatted text to any of your pages. The widget provides a full HTML editor so you can style the text however you'd like. You may also add hyperlinks and custom HTML, if applicable.
The Page Title widget can be used for headings/titles within your Fund Hub to draw attention to things. The formatting of the text is bigger and bolder than the default text in the Custom Content widget.
The Button widget can be used to create a button that links to either an Fund Hub page or an external page via a Custom URL.
The Social Sharing widget allows you to display Share on Facebook and Share on Twitter buttons on your pages to encourage the use of social media.

The Twitter Feed widget allows you to enter a Twitter handle that will auto update a Twitter feed showing tweets from that handle on your pages.

This widget will allow you to display just ONE image/video, a gallery of images/videos, or an image/video slideshow, depending on how it's configured. It can be added to any of the event pages included the team and personal fundraising pages so your participants can upload their own photos to personalize their fundraising pages.
This widget will display the avatars of your recent event participants. These avatars will be clickable back to their personal fundraising pages.
When placed on the Event Home Page, this widget will display a list of anyone who has made a donation to any entity. By default, the supporters widget will display as a scrolling list. The Number to Show drop-down selection controls how many supporters are displayed at one time. Selecting a number here does not remove the scroll function.
This widget allows you to show rankings for top Individuals, Teams, Donors, Classifications, and Forms.

This widget will display sponsors from all forms and events you chose to tie to the Fund Hub.

In this widget, you can select forms and events to which page visitors can navigate. You can also add custom navigation items, such as site pages and custom URLs.
This will display a simple fundraising progress bar for all forms and events tied to your Fund Hub. Visitors to your page can also click View Page beneath each bar to visit that form or event.
This will display a list of Qgiv event participants if you'd tied a Qgiv event to your Fund Hub.
