QR codes are images that, when scanned on a phone, take a person directly to a specific website. They are basically scannable links. Most modern phones can scan QR codes using their cameras, only requiring the person to simply hold the camera in front of a code for a short period and their phone will automatically take them to the website.
Fundraisers can use their QR codes to add to t-shirts, flyers and any print materiale. They can also be used by those super extrovert fundraisers to share their fundraising page with strangers in the train with their phone.
Fundraising Page QR codes can be found in two different ways.
- Fundraisers can add “/qr” to their Fundraising Page url. E.g. if the fundraising page URL is https://fundraising.charityname.org/fundraisers/my-awesome-fundraiser then the QR code is at https://fundraising.charityname.org/fundraisers/my-awesome-fundraiser/qr
- Alternatively fundraisers can find the QR code when logged in. They can find the QR code under "more options".
The QR codes can be downloaded as PNG images and save don a mobile phone for later use, or printed and hanged somewhere.
