Getting Started: Understanding API Keys

API Keys

You have access to your Public and Private Keys; API Keys from our matching gift software allow your software platform to flow donor information into 360MatchPro. Sometimes a platform will ask for the API Key(s) within your 360MatchPro account in order to connect 360MatchPro with your platform. Access your API Keys by going to Settings --> API Keys. 

360MatchPro Public Key

The Public Key is a public-facing key that connects the plugin usage to your 360MatchPro account. 

360MatchPro Private Key

This key is used for API Calls and should never be displayed publicly. The Private API Key is for your organization's use only and provides access to your donor information and 360MatchPro integration. 

General Documentation

This documentation is for individual nonprofit organizations that use a custom donation form and are integrating our streamlined search tool on the donation page and plugin on the confirmation page. There is a custom implementation guide, as well as platform-specific integration guides.
This feature is currently only available for nonprofits using 360MatchPro Enterprise. Not on Enterprise? Learn about upgrading here.

Other Integration guides 

There is a link that navigates you to all of our integration guides for specific platforms. Each guide will walk you through the setup process to integrate that specific platform with our software.

With some of our integrations, you have the ability to change the label shown as part of the streamlined search. If your integration supports this functionality, instructions for customizing your streamlined search label text will be in the FAQ section of your platform's integration guide.
