Next Step: Create Your KOMoves for Youth Fundraising Page.
- Here’s how to join our KOMoves team on GiveMN.org! Go to KOMoves for Youth fundraiser page.
- Scroll down to the “Join This Team” text at the bottom of the page and click the “Start Raising Funds” button.
- At this point, GiveMN will prompt you to log in if you have an existing account or “sign up now” to create a new account. To create a new account, you’ll be asked to enter a few details about yourself.
- Once you create your account, or log in with an existing account, you’ll be taken to your new fundraising page!
- Skip Step 1. Under Step 2 create a name for your fundraiser then select “Create My Fundraiser” at the bottom.
- Your fundraising page will be a bit bland so it’s up to you to personalize it and tell your story! Why are YOU raising money for KOM’s youth program? The more personal your page, the more successful you’ll be! You’ll notice on your page that there are links across the top: View, Edit, Images/Videos, Thank Donors, Share, Donations, Matching Grants. These links are only visible to you when you are logged in and they are the portals to customizing your page!
- You can edit your fundraiser page name and the headline. Feel free to get creative!
- You can and should expand on your story – your personal reasons for supporting KOM’s youth program– in the “Tell Your Story” section. You’re asking others to support the cause you care about so let your passion shine through!
- A picture is worth a thousand words, so let’s scroll down to the Images/Videos section… Here you can upload several images and/or videos. Whatever you think represents your fundraising efforts!
- GiveMN makes it easy to share information about your fundraising efforts in a variety of ways. Start by clicking the Share tab… Here you can easily share your page on Facebook, Twitter, or through e‐mails!
- Other savvy things, you can manage your thermometer and a matching gift as well viewing your donation and reports. Also, under the Thank Donors tab, you can customize the automatic Thank You message that anyone who donates in your name will receive. You can even add a video! Wow!
