You may have already completed a great deal of this information during registration, but you can always edit and refine your profile by pressing "edit profile" or from your Management area.
Note: some of the information on this page automatically updates based on your activity (e.g. posting stories).
1) BRING YOUR PAGE TO LIFE WITH IMAGERY
- Add your logo - Your logo is used whenever we mention your organization on the platform. Sometimes, when we list you with a group of other businesses or organizations, your logo is all that will be displayed.
Tip: a square logo looks best on our platform. Choose a high resolution image, we can re-size it for you!
- Add a profile banner - Personalize your profile with a wide image for the top of the profile. This image changes depending on the viewers browser, if you are including logos, people or text, then centre that subject matter vertically rather than near the top or bottom of the image.
Tip: A wide image works best, something like 1440 * 400 is a good place to start.
2) BUILD YOUR BRAND IDENTITY
- From your profile page click ‘edit profile’ to add contact info and link social accounts
- Add a YouTube video
- Add your top 3 causes
- Create an organization description and overview by filling out ‘About us’ and ‘Community mission'
Tip: Try to be concise, but include what your organization does, its specialties, and what makes your organization unique
3) ENGAGE BUSINESS SUPPORTERS / DONORS
You can recognize businesses that support your organization by:
- Writing them a testimonial
- Showcase their logo on your profile under a section labeled "We work with the following Businesses"
*Learn how to complete both of these actions from your Business Recognition page
NOTE: When employees volunteer for an event or position that you have hosted, their company is recognized for their involvement. Businesses can not pay to have their logos appear, and must earn the ability to be included in a section on your profile that says: "Employees from these businesses volunteer with us:". We call this "Earned Branding" for businesses that show they care about getting involved in the community.
- Registered Charity ID (if applicable): if you are a registered charity, enter your official ID. Do Some Good is planning on integrating with a payment processor, once we do you will automatically get a 'Donate Now' button right on your profile!
4) ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY

If you have not yet added an event or position, this section will be hidden from your profile until you do.
***Once you post a position or event - share it to the newsfeed (and social media) to raise awareness!
