If you are the leader of a team/organization, creating a team campaign will allow you to have representation in large scale fundraising events on Tiltify! This article will outline how to create a team campaign! Please note that this article will have many parallels to our Supportable Team Campaign tutorial - so feel free to reference that article for additional information.

Creating a Team
While you can create a team while creating your team campaign, it is much easier to create the team first so you have it set the way you like!
Start off by logging in, navigating to your teams tab on the top of the navigation bar, and clicking "Create A Brand New Team".
Once you create your team, you will be able to customize your team, including the name, biography, thumbnail, and all of the channels that represent the organization. After hitting save, your team will be available when creating your team campaign.
Creating your Team Campaign
Team campaigns can be created for any cause on our platform - so if you are looking to create a campaign under the team's name, you can do that! However, for some causes, there are major fundraising events that will include leaderboards and possibly prizes, which is where you will want to not only create a team campaign, but a supportable team campaign for individuals to represent. For more information on how to create a supportable team campaign, refer to this article.
After creating your Team, go to the teams Dashboard and select the Campaigns tab, then select "Create a new campaign"
Choosing your Cause
The first thing you will have to choose is a Cause. You will see there are numerous causes you can choose from! You can search by name or type of cause. Once you have found the cause you want to fundraise for, click on it.
In some cases, causes will have ongoing events that you can be part of! If you wish to be part of a particular event, click on the corresponding event. If not, click on "skip" to begin filling out your initial campaign details.
Customizing Your Campaign
Once you've selected a cause, you'll now have the option to choose a Team-base campaign and which Team you'd like the campaign to be for.
Depending on the cause/event, some campaigns may have a "type". These types offer a way to categorize and customize the creation of the campaign. Celebration, Memorial and Run, Walk or Ride, for example, prompt you to add the day(s) you are fundraising for by adding a schedule item. All features are available for all types, these options just give you a particular template most relevant to the "type" of campaigns.
Once you have selected a cause and event/campaign type, you will be asked a series of questions about your campaign, including:
- Campaign Name (What are you calling your campaign/event?)
- Campaign URL (What will the link look like for your campaign page?)
- Campaign Description (You are you fundraising?)
Next you can select a media type. It's not required so you can just click on skip if you want to set this part up later. Depending on your cause the possible media types are:
- Image (.jpg, .jpeg or .png)
Lastly, set your Campaign Goal (What is your goal amount you want to raise?) - This amount can be changed after your campaign is created, but we suggest making this amount achievable. You can always raise your campaign goal, but not lower it.
Some Events require registration details so you may need to fill out additional information to register for an Event. Depending on the event, you may be asked to provide an address, your DOB, a phone number, etc. This information is requested by the cause for the event registration. Some causes may have a regististration fee.
Once these questions are filled out, you will be given a chance to review all of the details before officially creating your campaign!
Once you click "Create", you will be sent to the campaign dashboard, only steps away from actually starting your fundraiser! If you are ready to publish your campaign right away, click "Create & Publish" and your campaign will be live!
Enabling Supporting Campaigns
Once you have created your team campaign, your campaign dashboard will look the same as if you were creating an individual campaign. One of the few differences is under Detail, where you will have an option to choose if this campaign is supportable by others. Select this option if you wish to allow others to create individual campaigns to support this team campaign; you can also limit the support of the campaign to team members, restricting it to those you have already approved to represent your team on Tiltify. Either way, by enabling supporting campaigns via "Supportable," their total amounts raised will also be represented in your team total.
Please note: you must have your team campaign published before anyone can create a supportable campaign for it.
Creating team campaigns are a great way of showing your team pride during major fundraising events like #StJudePLAYLIVE and GuardianCon! Whether you decide to fundraise from the same team campaign or create supportable campaigns in benefit of the team, just know that your charitable efforts are greatly appreciated.
