Adding Donors from Fundraise Up to a MailChimp List

Get every donor email into Mailchimp for newsletters, and other automated workflows.

Most CRMs offer Mailchimp integration already; if you're using your CRM's Mailchimp integration, and our donations are already being sent to that CRM, you do not need to duplicate that work by sending Fundraise Up donations directly to Mailchimp!

Connecting your accounts to Zapier

Before you follow the below steps within Zapier, you'll want to tie both Fundraise Up and Mailchimp to Zapier individually, as covered in these articles:

Step 7: Click "+" button on a left and then "Filter".


Step 8: Select "Only continue if" and click "Save + Continue"


Step 9: Select "mailingListSubscribed" from dropdown menu paired with "(Boolean) is true" and click on "Test & Continue":

If no test data was found earlier, Zapier will not offer the fields you'll need to filter out supporters that didn't subscribe to your mailing list. In that case, you'll need to make at least one donation via Fundraise Up so that you have at least one Supporter for Zapier to review.


Step 10: You will see "Your Zap would have continued" which means you did a great job connecting your Fundraise Up account. Please click "Continue".


Step 11:  Now it's time to work on the MailChimp setting. Select MailChimp as an action app.


Step 12: Select "Add/Update Subscriber" and click "Save + Continue".


Step 13: Select your MailChimp account and click "Save + Continue".


Step 14: Select desired mailing list from dropdown menu pulled from your MailChimp account.


Step 15: Now let's work on "Subscribe Email" section. Click on "plus" icon on the right and select "New Supporter" from the dropdown.


Step 16: You should now see a list of available fields describing the supporter. Select "Email" from this new dropdown.


Step 17: Click on "plus" icon on the right again and select "Only continue if".


Step 18: Select "Can Continue true"


Step 19: If you see this, you set all the conditions correctly and can click "Continue" further down the page.


Step 20: Click "Send Test To MailChimp".


Step 21: Click "Finish" and go back to your MailChimp account to confirm you have a new supporter.


Step 22: Slide activation switch to "ON". Congratulations! You have now completed the MailChimp integration and your zap is active! Great Job!
