Attention nonprofits, we just launched a new feature! You can now send yourself test receipt emails to see first-hand how your donation receipt template looks when it is sent out to your donors.


Initial & One-Time Donations

There are two types of email receipts you can test, the first being for initial and one-time donations.


Step 1

Start by heading over to your Donorbox dashboard and clicking the “Edit” button by the campaign whose receipt email you wish to test.

Step 2

Go to the “Email” tab of your campaign editor and, once you have drafted your email template, click the gray “Send Test Email” button.

Step 3

This will send a test email to the email address you used to create your Donorbox account. You should get a popup notification letting you know that the email has been sent.
