Displaying Sponsors on your Project Website

Sponsors are often critical to your event success. From in-kind to presenting Sponsors, they give backbone to your event and proceeds. It makes sense then, that we would want to highlight them where your attendees can see them. In Greater Giving Online you can set the website to automatically pull Sponsor data from your Supporters, and display them on your Project Website. Below, we cover how to fully enable a Sponsor to Display on your Website.

Note: Sponsors can also be displayed on Online Bidding! See our article on Online Bidding: Setting up Sponsors article.

In order for a Sponsor to appear on the Project Website, you must:

  • Have the Website set to pull Sponsor Data.
  • Sell them a Sponsorship-type package.
  • Mark them as Show on Project Website (recommended they also have an image).

Note: Make sure to click Refresh Sponsors on your Manage Project Website Screen!

To Enable the Website to pull Sponsor data, we must:

  1. From the Project Home, click Manage Project Website under the Project Website header.
  2. Click Edit next to the Project Website General Settings.
  3. Scroll down to find the Sponsor Information area and click Show Sponsors.
  4. Configure your settings:
    • Display dictates if the Sponsors Name, Logo (image) or Link appears. If Name is not selected, the Logo (image) becomes a hyperlink.
    • Headline is the header to the Sponsor area.
    • Display Order dictates if the Sponsors appear alphabetically or by Level. If two or more Sponsors have the same level, they default to alphabetical.
    • Display Position dictates where on the website they will appear.
    • Display Duplicates indicates that if a single Sponsor has more than one Sponsor type package, they will be displayed at each appropriate level.
