Integrate Double the Donation’s Matching Gift Plugin into NationBuilder:

Method #1: On a dedicated NationBuilder matching gift page

Step #1: Go to your NationBuilder control panel.

Step #2: Add a new page. We recommend:

  • Calling the page “Matching Gifts” without the quotes
  • Setting the slug as “matching-gifts” without the quotes
  • Setting the page’s status as “Published”
  • Setting the page type as “Basic”
  • Setting the page to be included in the top navigation

Step #3: Under the page’s content tab, write the core matching gift content for the page. This is your opportunity to explain matching gifts to your donors. For example:

Did you know many companies match donations from their employees to our organization? It’s true. In fact last year we raised $10,000 from matching gifts. Below you can access our matching gift search tool which will enable you to access information on your company’s matching gift program along with forms, guidelines, and instructions. 

Thanks for taking the time to check if your company offers employee giving programs which can double the impact of your donation.
