Before you start
You’ll need to be a team captain in order to edit a team page. The team captain is the individual who created the team page.
Open your editor
Visit your team fundraising page and select the Manage button. It will be at the top-right of the screen on a desktop and at the bottom-right of the banner image on mobile devices.
The first thing you see when you open the editor is the Overview tab. From here, you can view some cards with suggested next steps and access other content tabs. There are 2 content tabs that control the appearance and details of your fundraising page: the Story tab and the Details tab.
If this is your first time viewing the editor, we recommend completing the cards. They will help you edit your Story, make the first donation to your team, and ask for donations from friends and family. If you’ve already completed the cards, use the other sections in this guide to edit your page.
Tip: If you’ve completed the cards, you can reset them if you ever need a refresher. The first donation card is the only one that disappears since you can’t make the first donation twice.
Edit your story
Your Story is the main content that appears on your fundraising page. To edit the content, tap on the Story tab and make your changes in the text block. Hit Save when you’re finished to save your edits.
If you’re using a desktop or laptop, you can add photos, videos, and links with the tools at the bottom of the text block. Need inspiration? Share why the cause is important to you and how it has a beneficial impact.
Use updates to keep friends and family engaged with your team’s fundraising progress. You can share progress toward your goal, something about the nonprofit you’re proud of and motivated by, or get creative and offer to do something for donations (ex. pushups, run a mile, bake cookies).
To post updates, open the Story tab and select Updates. From here you can use the Create New button to post a new update or click the three dots on an existing post to edit it.
Edit your details
The Details tab is where you can edit the key details of your team fundraising page such as your team picture and fundraising goal. Simply make the edits you need and hit the Save Changes button when you’re finished. We explain what you can change below:
Team Picture: Use the Upload button to change your team picture. You can also use the Remove button to remove your picture and use the default picture that the nonprofit chose.
Team Name: This is the team name that will display on your fundraising page.
Page Headline: This is the headline that appears on your fundraising page. We recommend keeping it short and sweet.
Goal: Set the amount you plan on raising. If you reach your goal early, we recommend increasing your goal for an even greater challenge and impact.
Default thank you message: This is the thank you message that will appear after someone submits a donation to your team page.
Vanity URL: This is simply a shorter version of your fundraising page’s website address. Short URLs are easier to share and look nicer on social media.
Team notifications are sent to the team captain’s email. The notifications are designed to keep team captains up-to-date on your team’s fundraising activity. Toggle them on or off to control your preferences and hit Save Changes.
Comments on my team page: You’ll receive this notification when someone comments on your team fundraising page. This ensures you’ll know when to comment back to keep your donors engaged.
Donations on my team page: When someone donates to your team fundraising page, you’ll receive this notification. This ensures you can thank donors for their gifts.
Fundraisers joining my team: You’ll receive this notification when someone joins your team. This will help you support your team members.
Encouragement emails: When your team reaches a certain percentage of your goal or a specific amount, you’ll receive an encouragement email. You’ll only receive these notifications if the organization you support uses Classy to send encouraging emails.
How to get your teammates' emails: To see the email addresses of your teammates, select the Teammates tab. Then scroll to your teammates > select the checkboxes next to the teammates > select the Copy email addresses button that appears.
Delete your team page
To delete your team fundraising page, contact the organization you support. They’ll be able to delete the team fundraising page for you.
What are the next steps? We recommend making the first donation to your fundraising page if you haven’t already. Making the first donation demonstrates you’re invested and encourages others to join you. After that, we recommend inviting other members to your team.
