Unique Ways To Use Clover Donations, Part 1 (Events & Registrations)
We've recently posted about using funds for specific campaigns and ways to make your form stand out visually. Because there's so much flexibility, it's easy to get creative and use different forms for different purposes. In this post (and probably a couple more down the road), we're going to highlight some unique ways you can use Clover Donations. In this particular post, we're going to show you how some people are using forms to handle event ticket sales, and registrations.
1. Create Forms for Event Ticket Sales
If your church or non-profit is putting on an event, whether a concert, gala, fundraiser, conference, or any other type, you can create a form to handle all of the registration, payments, and maintain a list of people attending, so you can handle the process from start to finish.
If you'd like to see what this can look like, here's a couple forms set up for this:
2. Create Forms for Registrations
Many organizations have setup forms so their people can register and pay for conferences, or retreats. In many cases, there is one flat fee for a conference, or just a couple options for people to choose from, which means the form and funds can be used a little differently. You can see a couple examples below:
There's also another option to think about when you create your registration form that you can use to help your people. Sometimes, you might want to allow your people to pay their registration fee in installments leading up to the dates of the retreat, conference, etc., especially for more expensive events. In this case, you can use the recurring payment function to allow your donors to set up automatic payments leading up to the event. Also, they can set the end date for their payment to be the date of the event, or the month of the event - whichever works better - so that they are paid in full by a certain date. It's a nice way to make it easy for registrants to not have to think about getting in their payments on time. Here's an example of a form that has this option:
Hopefully this gives you a good starting point - and some ideas - as you create forms for your organization. We'll highlight additional unique ways to use forms in future posts.
