We're so excited that you're wanting to champion goodness within your community!

Before you do so on trellis, you will need reach out to your cause to figure out who will be collecting the funds raised.

The charity/organization is collecting the funds:

If the charity/organization is collecting the proceeds, there are a lot of options available to help spread the goodness. 

Firstly, if the organization is eligible by law, tax receipting can be included and automated for ticket sales and/or donations. If any part of the ticket is to be receiptable, the organization and champion will need to decide on these amounts prior to launching.

Secondly, as a champion, you can run a fundraising event, a donation campaign, or a combination of the two.

The process will be as follows:

  1. The champion will create their spectacular page and trellis send's it off to the organization for approval.
  2. The organization will approve your page. (if applicable, tax receipting can be included)
  3. The champion goes back into the platform, publishes their page, and they're off to the races!
  4. Finally, If there are costs involved, the champion will then invoice the organization after their event.


The champion is collecting the funds:

When a champion is collecting funds, unfortunately, tax receipting can only be automated for donations, not ticket sales. In addition, the champion will have to fill in banking information to start accepting funds with our payment processor, Stripe.

You'll be able to run a fundraising event that may have donations included.

 The process will be as follows:

  1. The champion will create their event page and trellis send's it off to the organization for approval.
  2. The organization will approve the page.
  3. The champion fills in their banking information.
  4. The champion publishes their page.
  5. Finally, the champion will send all proceeds to the organization after their event.


No matter what path you decide on, you'll be doing good within your community, and we're excited to see that happen.
