Network for Good (NFG) is a software company that offers innovative, easy-to-use fundraising software for charities and non-profit organizations.  PHWFF has long used the great NFG Tools to facilitate online giving to our cause and the disabled veterans we serve. 

NFG Fundraising Pages are branded, mobile-friendly, online fundraising pages that attract new donors, increase gift amounts and drive repeat giving.  Through the PHWFF blog, website, and program social media accounts you’ve worked hard to share your stories and inspire your supporters to give.  These pages give your supporters a tailored giving experience with a proven track record. 

A NFG Fundraising Page has been created for each PHWFF Program!  Each Fundraising Page has a unique URL (web-address) tailored to your program and can be used in a wide variety of ways. 

Check out our Best Practices and Tips page for some ideas.

Your NFG Fundraising Page makes it even easier for individuals to donate to PHWFF and your program via a dedicated portal and URL.  Additionally, the majority of online giving is done on a mobile device and these Pages are fully mobile friendly and responsive.

They are a perfect complement to the great stories you are already sharing on our website and your program social media accounts.  Story-telling and compelling content inspires actions – and with this dedicated giving portal you make it easier for them to give online.

Your NFG Fundraising Page is fully optimized for social and email sharing!  That means you, volunteers, participants, and donors (!) can share these to their networks easily with a single click.

Your NFG Fundraising Page is for your program and your program alone.  When using the URL associated with your program, it eliminates the need for donors to note if their gift is for a specific event, initiative, or program thus removing a step for the donor and for reconciliation with accounting and your budget.

Funds donated through your Program Fundraising Page will be credited to your program budget.

An email will be sent to each Program Lead with this document and the unique URL for your programs individual Fundraising Page.

No.  To maintain brand uniformity, a consistent donor experience across the U.S., and ease of administration, all NFG Fundraising Pages, and URLs, must have the same look, feel, and interface.

We have set your NFG Fundraising Page up with a donor scroll.  This highlights gifts made and any dedications, notes, or remembrances associated with each gift.

Additionally, the Program Lead can email donate@projecthealingwaters.org to find out donor information should they wish to send a personal note of thanks to the donor.

Your NFG Fundraising Page will automatically generate an email thank-you and receipt for the donor. 

Donor name (if provided by the donor) will be visible on your NFG Fundraising Page’s donor scroll.  Upon request, the Program Lead can email donate@projecthealingwaters.org to receive the donor information to send the donor a personal note of thanks.

Donations made on your NFG Fundraising Page will be credited to your program.  If the donor adds a restriction to their donation, that restriction will be honored by PHWFF HQ.

Spread the word!  You can share the URL anywhere online!
