Double the Donation and Qgiv Integration Guide

If you’re already using Double the Donation, you can embed their widget directly into the Top or Bottom Content areas of your online receipt page, if desired.

We’ll use the simple embed option that comes with the Tier 2 plan as an example. This plan doesn’t grant access to Double the Donation’s API, so if you want to dig in and customize anything, you may want to look at signing up for the Tier 3 plan, which does give API access.

Once you’ve logged in to your Double the Donation account, select Embed Our Plugin from the menu along the left side of the screen.

Next, click the Let’s Begin button.

You’ll land on a secondary contact screen. The secondary contact will be used by Double the Donation as a point of contact if they can’t reach you or if you leave your organization. Go ahead and enter one if you haven’t done so already, and then click Continue.

You should now see the Standard Javascript Embedding option. The code in the box is what you’ll be copying and pasting to embed the widget.

Please note: We’ve only included a portion of the code in this guide for proprietary reasons.
From your Qgiv control panel for the form on which you’d like to embed the widget, click the Form Builder button, located next to View Form.

Use the toggle in the upper-left corner of the screen to navigate to the online receipt editor. We’ll embed it in the Top Content area for this example.

Back on Double the Donation’s site, you can click It Worked! Complete Setup to finish up. That’s all you need to do! Donors can now use the service whenever they make a donation.

Dedicated Matching Gift Page

It’s also a great idea to have a dedicated matching gift page on your organization’s website. On the ASPCA’s website, you can see they’ve given donors all the information they need about matching gifts, along with embedding the widget.

Email Receipts

Another way to promote matching gifts is by directing donors to your dedicated matching gift page in your email receipts.

You can easily copy the example shown above by editing your standard donation receipt in the Receipts area of your control panel. You’ll need to repeat the process for each receipt in which you’d like to include a link.

Once you’re in the editor, you can upload an image by clicking Insert Media.

In the resulting pop-up, click Upload File, and then select the image file from your computer.

A preview of your image will appear in the media editor. When you hover over it, a button that says Insert will appear — click it to place the image in your email receipt.

Next, you’ll want to add a hyperlink to the images so donors can click it and be taken to your dedicated matching gift page. To do so, right-click the image in the receipt body and select Image Properties.

In the resulting window, click the Link tab.

You’ll see a URL field. Enter the exact URL of your dedicated matching gift page here, and then click OK.

Be sure you save the changes to your receipt before navigating away. Now, when a donor receives your email receipt, they can click the icon to be taken to your dedicated matching gift page!

Matching Gift Integration | Three Methods for Nonprofits and Fundraising Platforms

One of the most common questions received by Double the Donation’s sales and customer support teams is around the different ways to integrate matching gift information into a website or platform. We support three different integration options:

  1. Host match pages on Double the Donation’s servers (designed for individual nonprofits)
  2. Embed match information directly on the nonprofit’s website (designed for individual nonprofits)
  3. Use our matching gift API (designed for fundraising platforms and service providers)

 

Host Matching Gift Pages on Double the Donation’s Servers

The easiest way for a nonprofit to share matching gift information with its donors is by building matching gift pages hosted on Double the Donation’s website. This option is included in all pricing tiers and can be done instantly through our online account set up process.

During the online sign up process you’ll choose a URL (ex. https://doublethedonation.com/xyzorganization) which will become your nonprofit’s custom matching gift website. You’ll enter basic information about your organization including:

  1. A description of your nonprofit
  2. Your organization’s contact information
  3. Upload a logo
  4. Choose a background color

That information is then automatically combined with our searchable database of companies which match employee donations or offer grants for volunteering into a site which you can share with your donors and supporters. Here are a few examples:

Example #1: Lafayette Partners in Education Matching Gift Page
(https://doublethedonation.com/lpie)

Create your own matching gift pages on Double the Donation's servers


Example #2: Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Matching Gift Page
(https://doublethedonation.com/abg)

Hosted Matching Donation Pages on Double the Donation's Servers

Sign up and build your own matching gift pages on Double the Donation’s servers.

 

Embed Match Information Directly on a Nonprofit’s Website

For organizations looking to integrate matching gift information directly on their own website, we also provide the ability to embed our matching gift widget.

This involves adding seven lines of code (generated automatically when organizations subscribe to select tiers) to the appropriate pages on the nonprofit’s website.

Insert our matching gift search functionality by using the code we provide

Add Our Matching Gift Search Directly to Your Own Website

Suggested locations to include our matching gift widget include:

  1. Dedicated match pages
  2. Ways to give pages
  3. Donation screens
  4. Confirmation screens

Here are a few examples:

Embedded Example #1: New York Public Media

Nonprofits can maintain a fully branded user experience by integrating our matching gift search directly into pages hosted on the nonprofit’s website.

Use our Matching Gift API

Matching Donation APIThe previous two options were integration methods for a single nonprofit but Double the Donation also provides a matching gift API for partners such as:

  • Peer-to-peer fundraising platforms
  • Donor management / CRM software
  • Online donation platforms
  • And any other companies interested in providing employee matching gift data to nonprofits and their donors

Our API provides complete access to the raw matching gift data making it easy for you to incorporate matching gift information into your company’s own service.
