Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Added to Fundraising Pages

By: the Famous Monkey

With tighter browser security rules being enforced by web browsers throughout 2018, FundMonkey engineers have extended the SSL which was originally only on the Secure Donation page, to each of the customer fundraising pages. Now, when you create your fundraiser information page such as https://exampleelementary.fundmonkey.com, you will notice the tiny green padlock left of your […]

New Feature to Collect Technology Fees from Donors

By: the Famous Monkey

Several customers have asked us to include a feature that allows the donors to include the 9% processing and technology fees to their donations.   The ability to add this feature is optional as is the donors’ option to choose adding the 9% back.

Updates to Email Server

By: the Famous Monkey

In the Summer of 2018 we made additional updates to our email server to ensure only one email goes out to parents when sending a custom email. Some parents may have as many as three children in an elementary school so for a generic email being sent from FundMonkey we will only send one email […]

Change Log: 10-10-16 Added Animation Overlay When Sending Emails

By: the Famous Monkey

When sending emails some users would get concerned when the process took over a few minutes, so they would click the send button again, causing the system to send out a second or third set of emails causing extra load on the server resulting in a timeout followed by a “Server Script Error”. In order […]

Change Log: 10-14-15 Changes to Sent Emails from FundMonkey

By: the Famous Monkey

We launched our first production software in 2009 and since then the rules for sending email have been changing.  Sending email is the backbone of FundMonkey and when sending email through our campaign management interface, in the past we would spoof the receivers with our customer address in the FROM: section of the email. Email […]

We also changed the web view of the Participant Summary to include the […]
