A tandem page is a donation page where two or more organizations can work together to raise money on the same page. Anedot allows these funds to be conduited, or given directly.
Here are the benefits of Anedot tandem pages:
Teamwork - Fundraising is a team sport where nonprofits, political campaigns, and other organizations often work to help each other for a common cause. Anedot tandem pages can be used by any Anedot customer to raise money in partnership with others.
No additional reporting headaches - Anedot tandem pages do not use a conduit PAC or other entities. All contributions are direct contributions, just like a typical donation. They are direct contributions to your account. That means federal, state, and action organizations can all use tandem and partner together as long as the law in your state allows it.
Increased fundraising totals - Our test cases found a 50% lift in their total fundraising on tandem pages in beta testing. If organizations A and B each raise $1000 on an average campaign, tandem pages can raise $1500 split between the two organizations.
To create a tandem page, you first need to connect the other Anedot account to your account using "Connected Accounts" in Settings.
Once the accounts are connected, you will see the fund(s) from the other account as an option inside the Finance -> Funds area of an Action Page. You will add their fund as needed.
You should also adjust the receipt and footer to reflect that this page is a donation to the other organization as well.
Tracking - The contribution to each Anedot account is a direct contribution, so they will only have access to their data unless they agree to give another account access. You can track the donations to your account in the "Transactions" tab.
Authority Lines - Each account will need its authority/paid for by line or legal language on the page. Please be sure to add any as needed.
Fundraising across account types - There are no limitations on Anedot accounts using tandem pages across different types of accounts (federal, state, local, etc). Still, each Anedot account is responsible for following the laws in their state. We recommend Tandem pages adhere to the account with the most strict rules. For example, if a federal candidate is on a tandem page with a state candidate, then the page should not request or accept corporate contributions. The federal account would have to return those contributions just like they would if they received a check.
