Basic Page Settings
The name of your chosen template is displayed at the top of your Settings. If you wish to navigate back to the template description, click on the template name.
Give your page a title so it can be identified easily. The title of your page appears in various places:
- Thank you emails - When someone supports your page, they'll receive an email with a link to view/edit their message. Your page title is included in this email.
- Social media - When you share your page on social media, your page title is displayed.
- Online search results - A good page title will improve your SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and increase the likelihood of your page appearing in online search results. If you do not want your page to appear in search results, set it to Private (see below).
Please note this can only be changed before a page has been published.
When you set your Page Title, the system will automatically create a suggested web address for you - you have the option to change this on any unpublished page. Your page address has the following structure:
We advise separating words with hyphens, to make it easier to read and to help search engines understand the content. You can use any lowercase letter, number or hyphen to form an address. You must enter at least 3 characters and not exceed 100 characters. You cannot use spaces or any other special characters in a web address.

If you want to raise money for a non-profit organisation or charity through your page, click the Edit button to find the organisation you wish to fundraise for. Once you've selected your preferred organisation, you will be be navigated back to your Page Settings.
After you have published your page, any donations received are sent directly and securely to the charity's own Stripe account. You do not need to do anything else to ensure that your donations reach the charity safely.
If you cannot find the organisation you want to support, they may not be a member of Visufund yet. If you like, you can contact them and ask them to sign up for a free Non-profit account. Once they have onboarded with us, you will be able to create fundraising pages for them.
If you do not want to use your page for fundraising, you can leave this section blank or click the Delete button to remove the organisation you have selected.
If you are using your page for fundraising, you can set a financial target. For example, if you are aiming to raise £500, set the target to 500.
This displays your target and a progress bar in the page header, so visitors can see how close you are to your goal.
You can change your target at any time.
Switch this on if you want to display the real-time total in the header of your page, allowing visitors to see how much you have raised. Please note, the total is automatically displayed if you have set a fundraising target.
Switch this on to hide your page from being listed on the Visufund website and discourage search engine indexing. People will only be able to see your page if the web address link has been shared with them.
Internal page code 1-3
Use these fields to assign your own internal codes to a particular page. These references will pull through on your reports to assist with data processing and allocation. For example: Supporter ID to soft-credit a supporter or a departmental code to allocate funds.
To allocate codes to a Supporter fundraising page, navigate to the Supporter's page Info & Stats.
