How can I edit my organization's causes?
POINT was developed with the goal of connecting people with causes they care about, and users find events based on these causes. The 20 different causes on POINT are inspired by the United Nation’s Goals for Sustainable Development. Read more about them here.
You can edit the causes your charity represents by navigating to “Profile” on the dashboard sidebar, then clicking the little pencil in the upper right hand corner.
Then, add the 2-3 causes that your charity focuses on most. (Don’t worry - you can add or change causes based on what different events support).
What are the 20 causes and how do I choose 2-3?
