Giving Checkout

Giving Checkout is now used by thousands of charities to power their direct giving via their websites, contactless boxes, NFC devices and QR codes. But you told us it needed improvement in one key area – reporting. 

You told us you wanted a custom report for your Giving Checkout implementations that enables you to view your donor data and keep track of the donations you’re receiving.

Well, we’ve done just that and we’re excited to share the our new Giving Checkout report is available now to all charities in the UK on our Start or Grow memberships plans. You can find your new dedicated report by going into the Giving Checkout tab in your charity account and clicking on the ‘Your Giving Checkout Reporting’ button 

With GivingCheckout you get to keep 100% of every donation and it’s proven to be 4.7 x more effective in getting your supporters to give to your cause. Want to know more? Book a demo with a member of our team, or try it now!

Donors can now give via Venmo

Available in: US only

With Venmo representing almost 40% of wallet and peer-to-peer payments in the US, we’re very excited to announce that US charities using the Blackbaud Giving Fund can now accept donations via Venmo.

We’ve created a seamless, hybrid donation experience, so donors can give easily, using any device of their choosing. When donating on a desktop browser, donors will be presented with a QR code redirecting them to the Venmo Mobile App. When using their mobile phone, they’ll be taken directly to the Venmo app. It couldn’t be any easier for your supporters to give to your cause.

GoCertify

Available in: UK and US only

We’ve partnered with GoCertify  to create an incredibly easy way for retailers to reward any shopper that donates to any charity on JustGiving. Retailers can now drive donations for a charity of their choice by offering an exclusive discount to shoppers who donate through JustGiving.

Not only is this great for charities – but it also gives shoppers that happy do-good feeling, after giving back to a cause they care about. 

There are no setup fees or long-term contracts for retailers – and this new way of giving offers charities much-needed exposure to a new audience. So far, we have over 15 retailers supporting 16 different charities, including:

  • Bloom & Wild supporting Carers Trust, Blueprint for All and LGBT Foundation.
  • Threadbare supporting Unicef, Oxfam, Ukraine Charity and DEC​.
  • Hawes & Curtis supporting Dress for Success, Refuge, Womenkind Worldwide​

Login in with Blackbaud ID

Available in: US only

As well as recently increasing the complexity of our password settings and adding Multi Factor Authentication log in for charity users, we are now pleased to offer Blackbaud ID as a means of logging into your JustGiving account. 

Available now to new and existing Blackbaud customers in the US and Canada regions, this update means users of multiple Blackbaud products – will be able to leverage their one Blackbaud ID for logging in across the likes of eTapestry, RE NXT and of course JustGiving, making it faster and easier to switch across multiple products safely and securely.
