UC Innovation - Double the Donation FAQs
Q: What happens once the Ascend integration is activated?
A: All historic donation records will be imported from Ascend into the 360MatchPro donations table. We strongly recommend disabling automated matching gift emails within 360MatchPro prior to completing the Ascend integration. Once the Ascend integration is completed and automated matching gift communications are re-enabled, an automated message will be scheduled for each new donation to flow from Ascend into 360MatchPro.
Q: I don’t have a 360MatchPro account. How do I get one?
Q: Where can I embed Double the Donation's matching gift search plugin?
A: We recommend that you incorporate Double the Donation's matching gift search tool across your broader fundraising. To install the search tool anywhere on your website, simply copy and paste the Embed Code from your 360MatchPro portal.
We recommend that you create a dedicated matching gift page where you can explain what matching gift programs are and provide donors with a chance to look up their employer's program forms, guidelines, and instructions. This page can be used as a resource to be included in emails, newsletters, and direct messages.
