With the newly refreshed mobile-optimized campaign sites, you can expect to see a few small updates to the look and functionality of your campaign site on Wednesday, June 15th. These changes will provide a better experience for donors on all devices including tablets and mobile devices while also giving your campaign a fresh look!
No action is required on your end to get started on the new template. Any current or future campaigns will have the new template applied to them.
While we're still putting some final touches on the new template, here's a preview of the benefits you'll receive from the new mobile-optimized campaign templates:
Current: Campaign Media Area & Stats Area
New: Campaign Media Area & Stats Area
With the new design, you'll enjoy a centered logo at the top of your campaign. In addition, a full colored section highlights key info on your campaign by differentiating your media section and fundraising metrics from the rest of your campaign.
Current: About Section & Sidebar
New: About Section & Sidebar
With the new about section and sidebar, donors will be able to easily access your donation button while they scroll down your page to read through your content through our new persistent header and donate button. On mobile, the sidebar becomes stacked under the About section.
Current: Fundraiser & Team Fundraising Page View
New: Fundraiser & Team Fundraising Page View
With the new fundraiser and team fundraising page view, you'll be able to see a select portion (ranked by amount raised) of personal fundraising pages and teams (under the Teams tab), with an aptly placed "Create a Fundraising Page" button and the option to browse all fundraising pages.
Current: Recent Updates Section
New: Recent Stories Section
With the new recent stories section, blog posts written the CauseVox Admin will be featured with an image background pulled from an image in the post. Blog posts help you use storytelling to drive more traffic and donations to your campaign site.

New Campaign Site Design Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How will this affect my page’s design?
Your design customizations (colors, text, images, etc) will automatically carry over to the new campaign site template.
What will I have to update?
Although everything will be carried over, we recommend that you check your campaign site in case you’d like to make content updates to take advantage of the refreshed design.
Is the structure of the page changing?
