Now that you’ve set up your integration, you’ll want to select the events from there that users can connect their campaigns to.

Managing your integrated events
Once you complete the setup, you’ll automatically be put onto the page where you can select the events you wish to connect with Bonfire.
If you’ve already left this screen, you can get back to it by clicking on the settings icon, followed by “Manage events” on the Integrations page in your dashboard.
Connecting new events
To get started, click “Connect an event”. You can click either one.
This will open a modal where you can enter an event ID. The location of this ID varies depending on the integrations.
Note: Currently, once an event has been connected with Bonfire, you cannot disconnect it.
How to find your event ID
The event ID can be found on the Campaigns page in your Classy dashboard (see Campaign ID).
The event ID can be found under the name of each TeamRaiser in your TeamRaiser dashboard.
Note: TeamRaiser events without a team created will need to be added manually. Follow the steps onscreen to give your event a name. Once the first team has been created, we’ll sync the event data with TeamRaiser.
The event ID can be found at the top of each campaign page in the Neon Fundraise dashboard (see Campaign ID).
The event ID can be found on the Events & Campaigns page in your DonorDrive dashboard (see Event ID).
If you expand a connected event, you’ll see 2 options.
Require connected campaigns to add a fundraising team or individual
This setting will force sellers to select a fundraising team or individual when they connect their campaign to this event.
Note: When checked, it will only apply to new campaigns. Previously created campaigns may still be set up to send proceeds to the event without a beneficiary selected.
Note: For the TeamRaiser integration, this setting is required. Therefore, the setting is checked by default and disabled.
Pin this event
Checking this option will make it easier for sellers to find and select the event when setting up a campaign as it will appear at the top of the list by default. This is ideal for when you have an active event that you are currently promoting.
Require giving campaigns to select a connected event
This setting forces all sellers to pick a connected event when they create a campaign to fundraise for your nonprofit organization.
Note: When checked, it will only apply to new campaigns. Previously created campaigns may still be set up to send proceeds to your organization without an event or beneficiary selected.
Now that you’ve connected your events with Bonfire, users will be able to select it during the campaign setup process if they’re fundraising for your organization.
Take it a step further by creating a fundraiser page on Bonfire for your event. Reach out to our customer support team to get started.
If you already have a page created, you can learn more about customizing your peer-to-peer event page.
