Understanding Email Template Variables

Understanding Email Template Variables

On the top of each email stream within your 360MatchPro portal, we have a list of email template variables that can be included in the body of the emails sent to donors. You can use these email template variables to make your emails more specific to your donors. 

At this time, you don't have the functionality to add additional custom fields to these email template variables. 



Variables explained

1. {{form_available_link}}  - This variable links to the company's matching gift form if available. Including this variable within the 360MatchPro emails will show the below variable:



We recommend always including this variable within the match eligible email stream. It is already included in the default match eligible emails, so please keep this variable within the email if you choose to customize your emails as it is imperative that you link match eligible donors to their employer's matching gift forms. 


2. {{indicate_ineligible_link}} - Link that users click to indicate that the user deems donation to be ineligible. Including this variable within the 360MatchPro emails will show the below variable:

This variable is used for donors in the match eligible email stream and makes your emails more personalized to the donor. Also, the Donors are aware that you know their correct company name.

It is already included in the default match eligible emails, so please keep this variable within the email if you choose to customize your emails. It is imperative that you link donors in the unknown company email stream to your dedicated matching gift page, so they can see if their employer has a matching gift program and start the submission process.
