How it Works

Your Campaign

Here's what the campaign page looks like for first-time donors. In this example I just set up a single membership plan (Team Annunciation), but it is possible to set up more than one plan.

Link

Join Now

When someone clicks "Join Team Annunciation", it takes them right to the Join Now page. There's no signup or login form. They can just enter their personal information and their credit card and click Join Now. They can also click One-time to give a non-recurring donation if they prefer.

My Membership

After they join, they'll be able to see their My Membership page. This page shows them their membership status, any payments they've made, any members they've recruited, and their Magic Link (more on that in a minute).

They can also update their address, upgrade or downgrade their donation amount, change their payment information, or give an additional one-time donation, all from this screen.

Passwordless Login

If the donor ever wants to come back to this screen, they can login using just their email address. They'll get an email containing a special one-time login code. They can either paste the code or click the link in the email to login automatically. Here's what that email looks like:

Peer to Peer Fundraising

If you can get your members to promote your organization, you can multiply the power of your fundraising. That's Peer to Peer fundraising. We make sharing your campaign incredibly easy. Just point, click, and share via email and every popular social network. Members can get credit for fundraising, compete against one another for the top spot, and you get to keep track of all the details, automatically.

Peer to Peer Fundraising

The Magic Link is where the peer-to-peer magic happens. Every member gets their own magic link. For example, my magic link for Haiti180 is memberdrive.org/haiti180/heneise-family. If someone clicks on that link and then joins, I'll get credit for their fundraising. We can track fundraising through multiple levels, so we can see that I recruited Joe, who recruited Sue, who recruited Sam, all the way down.

Administration

On the administrative backend, you are able to see all the detail about your members and their fundraising.

Members

You're able to see a lot of detail about each member, including their direct contributions, their fundraising recruits, and their projected fundraising estimates. Here's what a member's detail page looks like to you:

You can also run reports on memberships by plan, status, renewal date, and more. The Memberships list shows you who's up for renewal, when their next payment would be, and what plan they are on. (You can also see one-time donors by clicking on the Members screen.)

Membership Plans

You can have multiple membership plans, even if they're not all publicly visible. This is sometimes handy if someone wants to subscribe at a level that isn't published (there's always that donor who wants to give $83.33/month).

Stripe Integration

MemberDrive integrates with Stripe, which makes taking payments a breeze. If you have an existing Stripe account we can connect to it, or you can set up a new one - it just takes a few minutes.
