We’re here to walk you through each step. If you have any questions, please reach out to julien[@]

1. Logging in to ActBlue

To start, click on Win Without War’s ActBlue link, which should take you to a page like the screenshot below. Click on “Create contribution form” to get started.

WWW ActBlue link

After you click on “Create contribution form,” you will be redirected to a different page where you will be asked to either sign in to ActBlue or to create an account.

2. Creating an ActBlue Account

If you already have an ActBlue account, skip to step 3!

If you don’t already have an account, click on “Create my account” to get started.

Creating an account is simple. ActBlue will ask for your email address and for you to create a password. Once you fill out this page, ActBlue will send a confirmation email to your inbox. Click on the link inside this email to confirm your account, and then click on Win Without War’s ActBlue link to log in!

3. Creating your own Supporter Fundraising Page

Once you’re logged into your ActBlue account, you should see a page that asks you to create a contribution form for Win Without War.

When you click on our ActBlue link, you should be redirected to this page again.

WWW ActBlue link

This time, when you click on “Create contribution form,” this pop-up should show up — this is a confirmation that you’re logged in successfully and can start building your supporter page!

Create a new form

It’ll ask you to fill out two things:

  • Form title: This is the place to title your donation webpage. You can use whatever you think best communicates our organization’s mission and your connection to this work. If you need a suggestion, feel free to use:
    • “Help me support Win Without War – and support diplomacy over war.”
  • Your form link: ActBlue needs a unique URL for your page. We recommend keeping it short and simple: your name + “www,” or any other phrase (in this example, we used “johnsmithwww”). ActBlue will tell you automatically if this phrase is available.

Create a new form with fields filled in

Once you’ve done these two things, click on “Create and continue” and you’ll be redirected to a new page like the screenshot shown below.

Example ActBlue page

From here, if you click on “Title, ask, and URL” you can change your title and URL, and add an optional donation ask.

  • Form ask (optional): This is where you can share an additional description of why this work matters to you. Personal connections and stories are best, but we’ve also drafted some sample content you can repurpose:
    • “I’m raising money for Win Without War! They’re building a more peaceful and just U.S. foreign policy — one that values people and the planet over war and profit. Right now, they’re working hard to get a ceasefire that can end the violence in Gaza and save lives in Israel, Palestine, and beyond. I support them because I want to live in a world where no one grows up with the threat of violence and war. Will you join me?”

Example ActBlue page with donation ask filled in

Now, click “Publish” at the top of the page, and your new fundraising webpage is set! Feel free to customize further (ActBlue has a detailed guide on how to do that) — and don’t forget you can always reach out to us for support.

4. Fundraising with your Supporter Page

Your supporter page is now ready for you to share with friends and family! Click on the “copy link” button on the top left of your webpage, and paste it into an email, text message, or social media post.

Don’t forget, your community wants to hear from YOU — in your own words. Feel free to describe why you care about foreign policy and peace, support Win Without War, or share stories about how our work has impacted you personally. For example:

  • Some of you already know that I’m a Win Without War activist. They do amazing work – from defending the right to protest on the National Mall in DC to calling to cut the Pentagon budget and re-invest those billions in our communities, to right now pushing for a critically needed ceasefire in Gaza. Will you join me in supporting their crucial work by making a donation today?

That’s it! Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need support or have questions. And don’t forget: A failed foreign policy status quo that prioritizes profit and war over people and peace won’t change without people fighting every day in ways big and small for a better future.

There’s nothing that we can’t do when we organize together — and with your help, we’ll take our call for a ceasefire even further. Thank you for joining us in this urgent work.
