To accept donations you can add a PayPal button to your site (described below), or better yet, you can raise FAR more money with less effort using TeamUnify's fundraising platform. Easy setup, powerful promotion tools the whole team can use, a fun progress bar to show everyone your team's progress, reporting tools, and so much more!

If you simply want to add a donate button on your site then PayPal is a good way to go. They can generate code to embed on your TU site. Keep in mind that this will not integrate with your billing system nor fundraising system, which is why we recommend using our Team Fundraising instead.

Generate PayPal button and code

  1. Sign in to your PayPal account (or create a PayPal account if you don't have one).
  2. Follow their directions to generate Donate button code.
  3. Chameleon users: Copy the code on the Button HTML tab.
  4. New CMS users: Copy the URL on the Shareable URL tab.

  1. Go to the page on your TU site where you want to put the Donate button and click Edit.
  2. Click the Source button to switch to HTML mode.
