Connect Fundraise Up to thousands of other apps using Zapier

Zapier is an online automation platform that connects your favorite apps and services together to help you get things done more quickly and easily. With Zapier, you can automate tasks across hundreds of apps, including popular services like Slack, Mailchimp, Trello, and more.

The settings for Zapier are managed from the Zapier integration page in the Fundraise Up Dashboard.

Getting started

The Zapier integration is activated the first time you log-in to your Fundraise Up account. However, to push data to Zapier, you must first complete some configuration steps in Zapier.

Below, review the prerequisites and connection steps for the Zapier integration.

The Fundraise Up Zapier app is invitation-only and is not listed in the public app directory. Refer to step 7 in the connection guide below to activate the Fundraise Up app in Zapier.

Zaps from Fundraise Up

Zapier's automations, called “Zaps”, are started by Triggers that can make use of Data.

Triggers offered by Fundraise Up

Trigger Description
New Recurring The Trigger sent when a new recurring plan is created.
New Donation The Trigger sent when a new donation is made.
New Supporter The Trigger sent when a new supporter record is created in the Dashboard.
Update Recurring The Trigger sent when an existing recurring plan is changed.
Update Donation The Trigger sent when an existing donation is changed.
Update Supporter The Trigger sent when an existing supporter record is changed.


When it comes time to decide what to do in the Zap, certain fields will allow you to access values based upon the Trigger event you selected. We offer the same fields for New and Update Trigger events, so the Data available is best organized by type of activity.
