- Setup your donation goal information
Start by entering in what you want the total of your donation goal bar to say.This is what will display above the goal bar when others see it. (Ex: Server bill for October) Next you will want to set your goal amount, once the money reaches the amount the bar will be full .The starting amount value can be used if you have already raised some donations and want to have them go towards the goal. Lastly set an End date in the End After box, this will decide when you want your goal to end. (When entering the end date you need to give the entire date such as 07/21/2016 ) When you are ready click the big green "Start Donation Goal" button.
