- The third box shows six different helpful training videos on the GiveSmart Fundraise tools that are available to you.

Verifying Remittance Information on Your Account
Click Settings in the top right of your Dashboard. Click on Remittance on the left hand menu. Confirm that the correct address is listed, as any funds raised prior to your Merchant Account being set up will arrive via check to this address.
Note: once your Merchant Account is set up, there will be no need to receive paper checks from GiveSmart Fundraise.
Choosing Your Organization Short Name
Click Settings, then Organization. Create a recognizable Short Name that your donors will recognize that fits within the 15-character limit. Your Organization Short Name will appear in text messages to your donors and as a hashtag if they tweet about you after they donate.
Click on Organization Logo on the left hand menu. Click File to upload an image from your computer or URL to upload an image using a link to that image. Select the image you wish to upload by clicking Choose Logo. Upload a .JPG or .PNG file that has an aspect ratio of 80:27 (for example, 400 x 135 pixels or 800 x 270 pixels)
This logo will show on tax receipts that are emailed to your donor after they complete a donation and on the Thank You page after your donor completes their donation.
Configuring Your Tax Receipt
Click on Receipt Configuration from the left hand menu to customize the Thank You Message on your email tax receipts. You can also customize the sender email by adding a contact email.
