How a Donor Creates an Account when Creating a Gift

This article provides steps for a donor to create a donor account on the public site at the time they are creating a gift for a pledge or going to create a gift to give now.

A first time Donor can create an account with a password which saves the information so they can come back and donate in the future without having to repeatedly provide information. 

To create a Donor account when creating a Gift for a Pledge or choosing to Create a Gift to Give Now enter the information on the Form when prompted in the system after setting up the Gift. 

1. On the Donor site click on Give Now, on the desired fund.
