    • Choose a clear Project Title and include all the details in the Project Description.
    • Choose up to 3 VOMO Search Categories to help clarify what your project is about (think of these as hashtags).
    • Join your project to a Campaign hosted by your organization (Standard Feature) or add it to a Public Campaign hosted by another organization in the VOMO network.
    • Specify the Location where this project will take place or select Virtual/Anywhere if there is no specific location.
    • Use the Advanced Options if you need them for Privacy/Approval Settings (Standard Feature), or to add Point People, Attachments, and Links to your Project.

    • With every project you have the option of creating an Anytime project or add specific Dates and Roles. Donation Items can be added to specific dates and Anytime projects.
