Fundraising Page Fun Facts:

  • Fundraisers receive a confirmation email when a gift has been made during the giving day on their fundraising page. The donor to their page receives a tax receipt when their gift has been processed.
  • Fundraisers also have backend access to basic donor information on donors that have contributed on their page. This is important for personal thank you notes and tracking. KLRU also has access to all of that donation information and donor data as it relates to individual fundraiser pages.
  • Fundraisers’ goal thermometer on their page will not move until the day-of when actual transactions are being processed and run. Scheduled donations are merely scheduled, not run yet, and will not reflect on the fundraiser page until the giving day begins. If you have a fundraiser whose thermometer goal has moved prior to Amplify Austin Day, it is because they received a real-time live donation that is not part of Amplify Austin Day.

  • KLRU T-Shirts to the 1st 3 to raise $240
