Integrating Fundraise Up with Google Tag Manager

Google Analytics lets you measure your organization’s advertising ROI as well as track your Flash, video, and social networking sites and applications.

Fundraise Up’s integration with Google Tag Manager works by sending information from the platform to the data layer in JavaScript.

Events

We push three events to Google Tag Manager: FundraiseUp.checkoutOpen, FundraiseUp.checkoutClose, and FundraiseUp.donationComplete. The behavior of each of these events and example payloads are described below.

FundraiseUp.checkoutOpen

This event is fired every time Checkout is opened.

Example:

1{
2  "customFields": {
3    "fiscal_year": "fy2023",
4    "form": "DonateNow"
5  },
6  "livemode": true,
7  "campaign": {
8    "id": "FUNCPJTZZQR",
9    "code": "C-INT-0000",
10    "name": "General Donations"
11  },
12  "utm": {
13    "source": "",
14    "campaign": "",
15    "medium": "",

23  }
24}
