An opportunity is a chance to receive a new donation, from an existing donor, or from a lead. This could be a grant opportunity from a new foundation, or a repeat donation from an established donor.
Here's how to create a new Opportunity.
1. Select a Donor or Lead
Opportunities are chances to raise funds from someone, so first you need to search the Donor or Lead that you're hoping to fundraise from. To do so, select whether you're searching for a Donor or for a Lead, and then enter the first 4 characters of their name.
Donors are people who have made a donation. Leads are people (or institutions like foundations or companies) who you have uploaded into the platform, and have not yet made a donation. To create a new Lead, click here.
