MailchimpAdd/Update Subscriber

Keep in touch with donors, so they'll consider another donation in the future. Use this Zap to take a new donor from Donately and automatically add them to a MailChimp list. From there, you can set automated emails, schedule follow-up emails and manage your communications all from within MailChimp.

*Note: This will not import existing donors. To import existing donor emails in MailChimp, you'll need to export your donors list from inside Donately's admin panel.

How this Donately-MailChimp integration works

  1. A donation is made via Donately
  2. Zapier adds the email of the donor as a subscriber to the MailChimp list you specify
