Navigating the Campaigns Tab

Donor Management System

You can use the Campaigns tab in your DMS to track and centralize all donations pertaining to the same fundraising appeal, whether online or offline.


By selecting Campaigns in the Main Menu, you will be directed to the main screen of the Campaigns Tab.

The main screen of the Campaigns Tab presents a list of every fundraising Campaign you have undertaken online through CanadaHelps or have added directly in the DMS.

To access a Campaign record, simply click on the campaign's name. You can also add your own Campaigns from this Tab by selecting Add Campaign in the top right corner.

Overview of the Campaigns Tab


  • Campaigns coming from that are Inactive won’t be automatically marked as Inactive in the DMS. P2P and Events pages cannot be deactivated in the DMS.
  • Since you might still be receiving recurring donations from these Inactive Campaigns, the same Campaign in the DMS needs to be Active to receive those donations.
  • If you delete a campaign originally created in your account, it will not be deleted in your DMS. This action will be overridden the next time we sync your CanadaHelps data into your DMS.
