Through Zapier, you’re able to integrate CauseVox with 1000+ applications, including Salesforce, Google Sheets, Mailchimp, Constant Contact, and Kindful.

You’re able to easily set up Zapier to push your donation data in your preferred application automatically, no coding or IT person needed.

You’re able to create triggers to pull CauseVox data into your application based on:

  • New Fundraiser- Triggers when a fundraiser joins a campaign
  • New Donation- Triggers when a new donation is created/received

Currently, the CauseVox Zapier Integration is in private and we can make it available upon request. All you need to do is email us at [email protected] for your free access.

The Salesforce integration is a premium integration. However, Zapier offers nonprofits the ability to receive a free “For Work” account to enjoy all of Zapier’s premium features.

Here’s a look at how you can integrate CauseVox with your Mailchimp account through Zapier:

Note: This process may be easiest if you make a small donation to your campaign first, so you have donation data to test.

Step 1: Log into your CauseVox account. If you don’t already have access to the Zapier beta in CauseVox, email us at [email protected] to request your access. We’ll send along an invite link to the CauseVox and Zapier integration.

Step 2: One you have the invite link, you can navigate to the invite and select “Login to Accept Invite.” 

Or, if you don’t already have a Zapier account, you’ll want to select “Sign Up to Accept Invite.”

Step 3: Choose a trigger for the information you’d like pushed into your application. You can choose between:

  • New Fundraiser- Triggers when a fundraiser joins a campaign
  • New Donation- Triggers when a new donation is created/received

Step 4: Select your CauseVox account. If you’re not already logged in, you’ll be prompted to login.

Step 5: Select the campaign you’d like to set up this trigger for.

Step 6: Now that your campaign is selected, you can run a quick test to see if the data is pulling from CauseVox by selecting “Fetch & Continue,” or you can skip this step. 

Once completed, you should see a “Test Successful” notification. Then, click continue.

Step 7: Now, you need to add an action step to push the data into Mailchimp. Select the link that reads “Your Zap currently lacks an action step. Add one now!”

Step 8: Search and select Mailchimp.

Step 9: Connect your Mailchimp account. You’ll be prompted to login and give access to Zapier.

Step 10: Select which action you’d like to trigger. For a new donation, you’d most likely want to select “Add/Update Subscriber.”

Step 11: On the next page, you’ll have the opportunity to edit your template to map the fields. This will control which sections the CauseVox data will be automatically placed into in Mailchimp.

If you’re creating a new contact from a new donation, the following are the fields you’ll likely enter in for the respective sections:

List: {enter your preferred list}

Subscriber Email: {donor email}

Double opt in: yes

Update existing: yes

Replace groups: add only

Step 12: You’ll have the opportunity to test the integration to see if it’s working properly.

Step 13: Once your action is tested and completed, you’ll be prompted to name and turn on your Zap. Just switch the Zap from off to on, and you’re integration will be up and running seamlessly.
