Are Giving Basket donation designations possible?

This FAQ addresses Give Lively’s role in processing donations through Charity Navigator’s Giving Basket and may not apply to all Give Lively members.

Yes. They’re called Hot Topics. Donors see an optional “This donation is for <hot topic>” checkbox on the Add to Basket form, but only for nonprofits that are listed for a particular hot topic. By checking the box, donors’ contributions will be assigned for use on programs directed toward that hot topic. Nonprofits will be made aware of donor designations through donor data, in which a column called “program designation” will indicate the hot topic.
