Logging / Adding Contributions

Adding Donations

Givsum automatically tracks your donations made through our system, but in order to make sure you can track all of your giving, we have created the ability for you to log any other monetary donations you have made.

First, click the + icon at the top of your page. You can log a donation to a charity, or to an opportunity if you happened to give that money at an event/opportunity that is also on Givsum. Logging your contribution to an opportunity can help the nonprofit organize valuable data about where their donations are coming from, and it can also help them remember you as they will be verifying your contribution. Start by typing the name of the opportunity or charity. We will search as you type to help you find what you are looking for faster. Click on the result you wish to log your contribution to and the "log contribution" modal will appear. Click "donation", or "both" if you also volunteered. You can then enter the date of your contribution, the amount you gave, and an additional note about your donation if you want to help the charity administrator remember it. Finally, click "Log".

Your log will be shown as "pending" and the charity administrator will be notified of the log. Once they confirm it, it will appear on your Givsum profile.

note: We value your privacy so by default we hide your monetary contributions from everyone. From your settings, you can elect to make this information public, visible to just your followers, or keep it hidden. 

Logging Volunteer Hours

You can use Givsum to track all of your volunteering, even if the opportunity you volunteered at is not in our system

First, click the + icon at the top of your page. You can log volunteer hours to the opportunity you volunteered at if it is on Givsum, or you can just log your hours to the charity you volunteered for. Start by typing the name of the opportunity or charity. We will search as you type to help you find what you are looking for faster. Click on the result you wish to log your contribution to and the "log contribution" modal will appear. Click "hours", or "both" if you also donated money. You can then enter the date of your contribution, the start and end time of your volunteering, and an additional note about your contribution if you want to help the charity administrator remember it. Finally, click "Log".

Your log will be shown as "pending" and the charity administrator will be notified of the log. Once they confirm it, it will appear on your Givsum profile.
