We are excited to share our event spotlight for Melanoma March 2019.
Last month we announced the release of our new White Label Functionality. These white label improvements were our most requested features so we’re thrilled to show you how they’re being used on the new Melanoma March website.
Melanoma March is in its eighth year and is Melanoma Institute Australia’s major annual fundraising campaign to support melanoma research. The 20+ Marches held across Australia bring together the whole melanoma community to raise awareness and funds for melanoma research.
When you visit Melanoma March, you’ll notice the campaign is completely white labelled including:
- Branded domains
- Branded page titles and favicons
- Email notifications sent from their branded email address
- Customisable user journey with an optimised process for joining or creating a team.
The Melanoma March website also uses our WordPress plugin enabling the power of WordPress combined with the proven capabilities of the GoFundraise platform. The microsite includes custom features such as the postcode search (to find the March closest to you). The user experiences a seamless journey as they browse from the homepage to any of the location pages.
Melanoma is the most common cancer in young Australians (15–39 year olds) and kills more young Australians (20-39 year olds) than any other single cancer. MIA has extremely passionate and loyal supporters and it is important that they have a seamless and branded registration, fundraising and donation experience as they march to find a cure.
To help optimise fundraising, this campaign also has access to our regular features such as:
- Mobile first experience
- Auto-activate: guiding fundraisers through best practice steps to getting started and becoming an effective fundraiser
- Allow donors to donate in under 30 seconds
- Fundraising at Work: allowing donors to give via their pay
If you would like to know more, or if you’d like to discuss your next event with one of our consultants, please contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org
GoFundraise Feature Release:
Custom Domains are now available!
Customise your campaigns even more by using your own URL
We are really excited to advise that the much-anticipated custom domains are here! This means you are now able to have your own domain for event microsites, registration forms, donation and fundraising pages enhancing your branding and user experience.
When your supporters visit your white label campaign, instead of seeing a URL with “.gofundraise.com.au”, they will now see the URL that you choose (eg: “www.eventname.org“). If you’d like for your campaign to use a domain of your choosing, please fill in this form.
This tops off several weeks of enhancements as part of our White Label offering including:
- SEO & Page Titles of fundraising pages and events sites now use the Event Name and page title, without GoFundraise being mentioned.
- Favicons can be customised to your brand
- System generated emails can now be sent from custom email addresses
- System emails also can have the “from name” as your event or organisation instead of GoFundraise.
This is in addition to our market leading WordPress Plugin which allows you to pull through information from GoFundraise onto your WordPress site and more.
It’s important to note that custom domains are best to be set up before you launch your campaign, and it can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 48 hours to take effect in addition to the set-up configuration, so please allow adequate time for these to occur.
If you would like to learn more about any of these updates, please email Amy to book in a time for a fundraising consultation.

Chris Lovelady, Relationship Manager
at The CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Research Trust said
GoFundraise is proud to have helped the Team CatWalk NYC Marathon to grow in 2017 by 150%. GoFundraise made many improvements to our mobile experience and now offer the world’s best mobile fundraising and donation experience.
Our new mobile-first platform helped to achieve the following:
- Over $170,000 raised online
- Increased amount raised online by over 150%
- Average donation is by almost 60% higher
- Fundraisers raised in average 55% more
“As a charity it is important for us to be able to get our message and events across to our supporters in a way that matches our high standards of presentation. GoFundraise helps to do this through the tools that are available when using the system.” Lovelady also said
This year 28 athletes and 8 supporters travelled to New York and joined the team running to raise funds for the CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury Research Trust. It’s been a huge commitment by all participants, who were making a change by running so others can walk. In 2017 Team CatWalk raised over $170,000 online.
The CatWalk Trust is committed to a world where spinal cord injury will not mean paralysis for life.
GoFundraise’s Event Creator Vision has also contributed to this success. It’s an easy to use website builder, fundraising and registration platform all in one! It allowed the Team Catwalk to create a beautiful event in minutes without using any technical or design resources.
Why Catwalk use GoFundraise’s Event Creator Vision
“The Event Creator Vision is an excellent tool with the very good tool of colour identifier helping to create a page that fits with our branding colours.” Chris Lovelady said
“Especially helpful to create a personal feel to the page is the tool that can recognise the colours used in our logo and transfer them into the event page giving a seamless interaction between our branding and profile. The dashboard and ease of navigation makes the programme easy to use. There are ample help and video tutorials to help you create the event.” Lovelady also said.
“Event Creator Vision has many useful features to help create a personalised page that gives it the true CatWalk feel.” She also said.
