A Donation section is a great way to direct your donors to easily give online. By having a section dedicated to this, your donors always know where to go and where to click to get to your donation resource. If you're still looking for an online giving resource, you may want to check out Clover Give.

Step 1 - Click the Edit Sections button (Advanced Mode)
Step 2 - Click the Add New Section button
Step 3 - Select Donation Section
Step 4 - Choose Donation Account Type
You can either use a Clover Give account or a different online donations service.
If you're connecting your Clover Give account, you can link to your giving portal by following these steps. If you’d like to use a different online giving service, choose that option and paste the link to your service or online form where it says Paste Link Here.
Step 5 - When you're finished, click Close
Click anywhere within the Section to edit the text/and or photo (check out our Using the Text Editor help article for more Text Editor info).
