Many nonprofit organizations have limited resources, from small teams to lean budgets to simply needing more time in the day (or all of the above).
That’s why we here at Donorbox strive to provide an innovative fundraising platform that is not only effective but also simple to use, for both you and your donors. We want to make sure you have the tools you need to thrive as a nonprofit, without spending all of your finite resources obtaining and managing a complex system.
It’s also why we’ve released the new Donorbox Dashboard, which makes managing your fundraising efforts faster and easier than ever!
This new Donorbox Dashboard, now available in your Donorbox account, brings together all of your must-have quick links and profile information in one place. You can also use it to quickly view recent fundraising data as well as stay up-to-date on all the important Donorbox news.
Access Your Dashboard Now!
And as Donorbox continues to grow and add tools and services, this Dashboard will only become more helpful in empowering you to use your account to its fullest extent. No more clicking around to find what you need or wondering where to go next!
Click here to log in now* (or sign up for a free Donorbox account) to check the Dashboard out for yourself and read on for more details.
*Note that, at this time, only Account Admins and Team Members with access to all campaigns will be able to view the Dashboard. Any Team Members that only have access to a select few campaigns will be re-directed to the Campaigns page.
Navigating the Donorbox Dashboard
The Donorbox Dashboard is designed to give you a bird’s eye view of your entire account, from where you’re at in the onboarding process to details about your team to how much you have raised in the last 24 hours, and much, much more.
We’ve worked to make navigating the Dashboard as seamless and intuitive as possible. Here’s a look at how to access it and how you can put it to work for your organization.
1. Finding the Dashboard
Simply log in to your Donorbox account (or register for one if you haven’t already) – each new session will now start on the Dashboard.
Are you already logged in or have navigated elsewhere? Find the Dashboard link at the very top of your left-hand navigation or click here.
2. Top Navigation
At the top of the Dashboard, you will now see a navigation bar only found on this page of your account. You may upload your organization logo, and you will see your name as well as the name of your organization.
In this navigation bar, you’ll also find several links to helpful resources and contacts, including –
- FAQ – This links to our Zendesk with hundreds of articles covering the answers to numerous questions and topics. You’ll also have the option to submit a question of your own via our Support form.
- Support – Click here to head directly to our online Support form. There you can send an email to our support team with any questions and information about you or your organization.
- Contact Sales – This leads you to our Sales Inquiry form. You can submit it if you are interested in speaking directly with one of our sales representatives about your Donorbox account and how we can help you help others.
- Learn – Click here to open a drop-down menu that features all of our top resources. It provides you with quick access to the Nonprofit Blog, Donorbox Academy, Donorbox Library, YouTube, Webinars, and The Nonprofit Podcast. Each of these has been carefully curated to provide you with educational information, skill-building activities and courses, detailed templates, and more that will empower you to take your fundraising to the next level.
