Other Donation Categories

Is there a way to add other donation categories on the online donation drop down? The ward is doing a fund raiser for a youth activity and there are many who would like to be able to donate online, but I have not found a way to add anything there.

From the Donation FAQs:
Consistent with Church policy, our ward may have a fund-raising activity to raise money for youth activities such as Young Women or Scout camp. Can this money be donated online?

No, contributions made for fund-raising activities are not considered donations but are considered a payment for goods or services and cannot be completed online. They are similar to paying for the cost of craft projects that are part of a Relief Society activity. They must be done through your local ward or branch.

No. Payments for youth activities cannot be done online. They have to be done via donation envelope given to the bishopric.

See the 10th question in the Donations FAQ.
