Sponsorship Gifts

Using the REACH Products module, you can create products as gifts for sponsorships. Most commonly, this is used when an organization creates a catalog of “approved” gifts that sponsors can select from to be given to or donated in honor of their sponsorship.

Once Sponsorship Gifts are set up, a Supporter can log into their Donor Portal and access the Gift Catalog where they can view and purchase available gifts for sponsorships.

Note: You can rename the Gift Catalog button in the Donor Portal, as well as create a unique header and footer for the Catalog page. To do so, go to Settings > Portal Setup > Gift Catalog.

Donor Portal: Gift Catalog

To learn how a Supporter can purchase a Sponsorship Gift directly from their Donor Portal, view our Purchasing a Sponsorship Gift from Donor Portal article.

Here is an example of a Gift Catalog that includes Sponsorship Gifts:

In addition to being shown in the Donor Portal, Sponsorship Gifts can be publicly visible on the Products page, Hidden from the Products page or Disabled from all public and Supporter pages.

    • Note: This allows you to set the order of how Products are displayed to the public. The higher the number means the better the rank in the list. Ex: Setting to 1000 will show before 0-100. By default, products are ordered alphabetically.
