Customize what your fundraising Thermometer page will say and look like here.


Add a title in the Thermometer Header text field and optional description in the Thermometer Description field.


Layout Options

If you'd like to prominently display your organization's Text-to-Give number and event trigger word on your Thermometer page, make sure the "Hide thermometer instructions" option is unchecked. This is a great option for live events.

"Hide pledged amount" makes the Thermometer reflect only paid donations in real-time, and not include amounts from supporters who've pledged to make a donation at a later date.

Checking "Show recent donors/hide thermometer description" will allow your donors to see the 5 most recent donors instead of the thermometer description

Thermometer Theme

Use the  hex code fields/color pickers to control your event's color scheme. You also have the option to upload your event's logo or add a background image.

Text-to-Give Trigger Word

If you have multiple donation forms with different Text-to-Give trigger words associated with this event, you can choose one to tie to your Thermometer here.
