Integrating REACH with your website

There are three approaches to integrating REACH with your current website. I will describe each in increasing order of technical difficulty.

If you would like the staff of REACH to help with any part the setup process, please review our Start-Up Packages and contact us at support@reachapp.co.

Site Design and Linking


In this approach, we suggest that you link from your current website to your REACH portal where appropriate. For example, if you have a Sponsorships link in your menu, instead of pointing to the current Sponsorships page you would edit the menu link to point to the Sponsorships page on REACH. Similarly, you would create a link for people to start their own personal fundraising pages and point that link to the Campaigns page on REACH.

REACH gives you the ability to style your portal to match your brand and current website. You are able to add your logo, adjust colors, edit the CSS, build your own theme, and use a CNAME to create a seamless transition from your website to REACH.

WordPress Plug-in


If you use WordPress for your main website, REACH offers a specially designed plug-in to integrate with your site. Once the plug-in is installed, you can create a Sponsorships page and a Campaigns page on your site and use the short codes for the plug-in to pull information from REACH to display on your site.

Your web designer will be able to style the widgets to match your organization’s brand. Each widget will then link to the REACH portal where supporters can start their sponsorships or donate to a campaign. 

The plugin page is located at https://wordpress.org/plugins/reach-connector/. You can also search on the Add Plugins page in WordPress using the terms "REACH" or "REACH Connector". Contact our support team at support@reachapp.co for further assistance.

JSON API


REACH has a read-only JSON API that can be used to pull information from your REACH portal to display on your website. Most programming languages used for building websites have the ability to work with a JSON API to fetch and display information received in a JSON format. Your web designer will then have complete control over how to store and display your information on your current website.
