Linking external donations to OpenCollective

Hello, 
I was wondering if it is possible to connect the donation button on our website (using Donorbox) to go through Open Collective (with you as our fiscal sponsor)? 

Would it also be possible to have 3 different transaction sources linked to the same account, each with their own reference tag? 

Thanks

The best way would be to create your own button and either link to the general donate page: https://opencollective.com/getcouragenow/donate or to a donation page where the amount is set (e.g. you could have a "donate €20" button that would link to https://opencollective.com/getcouragenow/donate/20 or a "donate €10/month" that would link to https://opencollective.com/getcouragenow/donate/20/month)

Another way is to create dedicated tiers (see https://docs.opencollective.com/help/collectives/tiers-goals) and either copy paste the url after clicking on contribute on that tier from your collective page, or the copy paste the url of the page dedicated for that tier (when you edit the tier you can specify to have a dedicated page for it), see for example: https://opencollective.com/community/contribute/transparency-report-feature-16424)
