What is Double the Donation?

Double the donation is a platform that connects eligible employers willing to match donations with your supporters. Learn more at http://doublethedonation.com. For this integration, you need to sign up for an account with Double the Donation.

How does the integration work?

Givecloud will display a Double the Donation widget after a contribution is completed on the Thank You page. This widget gives your donors the option to select their employer to help match their contribution.

GC does not store any donor/employer matching data. All GC does is display the widget powered by Double the Donation. You manage donation matching using the Double the Donation product.

How do I install Double the Donation into my GC site?

Before you get started, you'll need the Embed Code from your Double the Donation account. So be sure to have that handy before you follow these steps.

For Add-to-Cart Checkouts:

After a contribution has been processed, the donor is automatically taken to the Thank You page. To connect Double the Donation to this page, you'll need to update the template for your Thank You page. Be sure you have the proper permission levels before continuing.

  1. In your dashboard to your left, go to Features > Website > Site Design > On the "Customize" page, click on the "Thank You" tab

  2. Choose whether you want the Double the Donation widget to display in the 2nd or 3rd box.

  3. Click into the code tab of the content editor.

  4. Paste your code.

  5. "Save" in the top right corner. The change you make here is more difficult to preview. You'll need to find an existing contribution and click the "View Customer Receipt" option to view the contribution review screen, then add /thank-you to the end of that URL (e.g. https://yourorganization.givecloud.co/contributions/808B268A47/thank-you).
