Using Custom URL Parameters
Custom Donations is the easiest way to create custom forms and track donor data and select directed giving areas using custom URLs.
Consider the following scenario. You want to send a special appeal to your big donors and your regular giving page isn't the perfect fit. You would like a special thank you message and suggested giving amounts that are much higher than your normal forms. You spend a few minutes and create this new form and you are ready to hit send on the email...but it is Saturday, and no one is around to put your new giving form in the website. What do you do?
With Custom Donations, since this is a modular and flexible platform, you simply use your regular giving page and tell our system to load the new form.
For example, here is a regular giving page: https://demo.customdonations.com/
And here is the same page, but with a special parameter added to the URL that allows your new form to be loaded: https://demo.customdonations.com/?cdFormKey=c0421f25-1a35-4f2c-aef5-5e05bda77fd3
With custom URL parameters, you can control many aspects of the giving forms you create. This allows you to generate custom-tailored giving links from your email system. With one dynamic email, each recipient can have a custom giving link that tracks their donor ID, selects their favorite scholarship, and pre-populates a suggested giving amount.
