Milestones are markers, or sub-goals, to bring attention to certain points of progress on your fundraising journey.  You can celebrate 50% of your goal by eating hot sauce or singing a show tune - or, like the example above, you can set milestone goals at multiple intervals so they can act as stepping stones towards your ultimate goal!  Milestones are an easy way to bring hype and attention to your community as you climb to the top of your goal!

Create a Milestone



Navigate to the Milestones tab on your Campaign Dashboard and click the button above (top-right).



Enter in the details, keeping in mind that if your milestone exceeds your goal, it will automatically increase the goal to that amount!



View your Milestone(s)


Once you add milestones they will appear as bubbles in your donation bar on the campaign page where people can hover over and see - and the next milestone goal in particular will be shown right under that same donation bar.



You can also see a list of all milestones by clicking on the more detail link to the right of the bar.

Going further

Met your goal?  Want to keep going to see how far your community can carry you?  Add a new milestone past your original goal to act as a stretch goal.  These should be goals you’d normally “never” do so they can act as the ultimate “if you really want it, you gotta dig deep and support” rewards that the entire community can work towards.

Conclusion

Milestones are a great way to make the journey to your fundraising goal more engaging.  Remember to always have fun and only offer Milestones you are ready to complete because your community will surprise you!
