We're pleased to announce several new features added to Soapbox this evening, most with an eye toward empowering your organization to more easily raise funds online as the holiday giving season approaches.
Enhanced one-time and monthly recurring options for Soapbox Donations
Create unique pre-defined payment amounts for one-time vs. recurring monthly payments. Make recurring monthly payments the default to encourage more regular giving, or create forms exclusively for recurring monthly payments. Easily modify settings and text to meet your fundraising needs.
