View and/or Update A Campaign

A Campaign is any effort made by your organization toward completing a particular goal. Campaigns can be related to soliciting donations, generating interest for an event, attracting volunteers or getting the word out about your mission with social media marketing. Once you create a campaign you can assign it to items like donations so you can track the progress of each campaign.
