Sub-Events: What are they and How do I create one?

A sub-event is a great way to organize your donations under a general donation event. We see a lot of creative ways Modern Giver organizations take advantage of this free feature. Below are more details and a list of steps to get everything set up.

What is a donation sub-event?

sub-event is a more specific donation event that exists under a general donation event. For example, you could set up a Sponsor a Child donation event and under this Donation Event you could add a specific child to be sponsored.


Another example would be to have General Donations set up and institute a sub-event for recurring and/or one time donations. See:

There are countless ways sub-events can be utilized to increase donations for your organization.

You just need to decide which type of sub-event will better suit your needs.

Types of sub-events

There are 2 types of sub-events, TEXT and IMAGE based. For text-based sub-events, only text is displayed on the donor’s device, while image-based sub-events allow you to upload an image and a description.

The latter is typically utilized for organizations that run ‘Sponsor a Child’ campaigns as well as for purchasing or sponsoring physical products.

For example, you may upload an image of an item that someone donated to your organization and have a donor sponsor that item, either on a recurring basis or just that once as a one time donation. Your choice.
