Set your goals

Tell donors about the campaign with a creative title and informative description. You can set a goal based on number of donations or dollar amount raised.

The latest start date campaign that has elapsed will be the one shown on your nonprofit profile page, up until the termination date. If there are no campaigns within the start date to termination date range, then your nonprofit profile will not show an active campaign. So make sure you have another setup to start after either the goal date or termination date.
