Monthly Donation Amounts

For one-time + monthly donation pages, we've created a formula to automagically display different monthly amounts based on the one-time amounts that you input.

This only activates if the maximum amount on the form is greater than $100, otherwise there’s no change. The objective is to help you maximize monthly giving by displaying reasonable monthly donation amounts (because no one we know can afford to donate $1500/month 😜).

A magician never reveals their tricks, but we're web developers. So how does this automagic formula work?

It is the cube root of the square of the one-time amount, rounded to the nearest $5 if the one-time amount is a multiple of 5, otherwise it is rounded to the nearest dollar. If the calculated amount is larger than the highest amount on the form divided by 12, then it’s reduced to that.

Default to Monthly Donation

This isn't best practice, but it is possible

Change the default occurrence to monthly with the option of one-time for your donation page instead of one-time with the option for monthly.

Add the following tag to the page:

Donation Occurrence: Monthly

NationBuilder has a built-in feature allowing you to Highlight/Feature a donation amount. If you specify a Highlighted Donation Amount, it will automatically be the default selection and change colour to bring attention to the amount.
