All campaigns created on CrowdRise remain active and open to donations unless the donate button is turned off by the campaign organizer. How you receive your fundraised donations depends on which payment processor you have elected and is not dependent on the “end” of your campaign or any time that has elapsed since you published your campaign.
Unless it will interfere with your organization's accounting, campaign management or otherwise, we recommend keeping the donate button active in the event that someone stumbles on your campaign after your intended fundraising window has passed. That being said, if you wish to mark of the end of your campaign, see the three options below:
If you wish to leave your Donate Button on but want to indicate that the campaign is over, we recommend editing your Story text to reflect this.
Tip: If you have a more current campaign running, provide the URL to the new campaign in the old campaign’s Story section.
Similar to editing your campaign Story, you may also wish to send a Campaign Update to all donors on your campaign to inform them of the end of the campaign.
Although we recommend leaving your Donate Button on so that your nonprofit can accept donations beyond the campaign’s official end date, you may elect to remove your Donate Button to stop receiving donations. You may disable the donate button immediately, or schedule it to happen automatically at a later date.
Note: Removing your 'Donate' button as a team organizer will also remove the donate button for any fundraisers who have joined your campaign.
If you'd like to hide your campaign completely so it is not shown on your profile, or available in the CrowdRise search results, it's super easy to hide. Click here to learn more about hiding your campaign.
