Preset Contribution Amounts

You can set the donation buttons on your contribution forms to any amount you want. While donors will always have the ability to enter their own amount, the preset contribution amounts set a frame for how much donors might want to give.

Toggle open the “Options” menu in the Edit tab of your contribution form, and you’ll see a field where you can enter your preset contribution amounts.

List up to seven amounts separated with commas and no spaces. It’s important to offer a range of contribution amounts on your form -- if your lowest preset contribution amount is $100, some donors who can only give $10 may feel like their contribution won’t matter and choose not to contribute.

If you’re fundraising through an email, you can also preset the contribution amount and number of recurring months (if you’re asking for recurring contributions) by customizing the links you include in the body of the message. Go to the “Promote” tab of the form and enter the amounts.

As you can see, the link is now customized with the contribution amount and number of recurring months, and you can drop this link into a fundraising email.

When a donor clicks on this link, they’ll see the buttons for that amount and number of recurring months preselected on the contribution form. If your committee is set up with ActBlue Express Lane, and an ActBlue Express user clicks on one of these links, their contribution will process automatically for that amount and number of recurring months.
