Customizing the Team Page

Your Team Page is a Web page on our site that people can visit to find a team member or give a donation that supports the fundraising efforts of the entire team. Although the default page contains the essential tool that enables visitors to make a donation, you can customize this page to make it a creative expression of the team commitment to our mission. From experience, we know that a compelling Web page will attract and engage people who visit your site.

To preview your Team Page now, click the Visit Your Team Page link from the very top of the page (above the navigation options).

You can add a description of the people who make up the team or the reason why you came together as a team to participate in this event in the content area.

You can quickly and easily upload a graphics file that contains some type of graphics image, such as a digital photo of the team, and add a caption to it. The file containing the image must be a .jpg or .png and is subject to a size limitation. The valid file type and size information will display as page instructions in the photo insertion area.

Notes about Image Files: When you upload a .jpg or .png, the system automatically resizes the image to fit in the designated page space as well as in a thumbnail area. To avoid distortion, the system resizes your photo starting with the largest dimension of the height or width to equal the valid measurement, and then sizes the other dimension in perspective. For example, if your original photo is 8x10, the system will resize the 10-inch height to 6 inches and the width to 4.8 inches. Before you upload your image file, you may want to open it in your favorite graphics application and resize or crop the image for the best fit especially if the photo is quite large.

To make your page easier to find or remember, you can create a shortcut to the Web address of the page using the team name.
