Wordpress Fundraising Plugin

We have developed a Wordpress plugin that creates a shortcode for you to drop into one of your posts or pages to link your readers or supporters directly to your Altruly profile page so that they can immediately go start fundraising on behalf of your organization. This is the simplest and quickest way to update your organization's Wordpress site to point to your Altruly profile.

How to use it

If you already have an Altruly profile created, proceed to step 4:

  1. Create an Altruly organization profile here: https://altruly.com/nonprofitregister. Take note of the "slug" value you use to associate with your account. You'll need it later. Await validation of your organization (usually less than 24 hours).
  2. Complete your organization profile (including linking your Stripe (https://stripe.com) account, uploading your authorized signature for tax receipts, choosing your receipt serial number)
  3. Choose a plan to enable fundraising on your account.
  4. Upload the folder altruly-simple-diy-fundraising-for-charities-and-nonprofits to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  5. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  6. Place the shortcode [altruly slug="your-slug-from-altruly" color="blue"] on the post or page you would like (other color options are: green, orange, purple, red, yellow). *Please ensure that the slug attribute is set correctly, or your supporters may not be directed to the right profile page*.
  7. Preview the page or post to ensure that the text renders properly. The button created at the bottom of the text will point to https://altruly.com/diy/your-slug-from-altruly
