Add Donors

There are two ways to add Donors to your organization’s master list

1 – Enter the information for each Donor one at a time.

2 – Import a list of Donors from an Excel file.

To enter the information for an individual Donor, open the Donor Dashboard and click +Add New Donor.

The Donors window will appear. 

Enter the information you require for the Donor.

You can enter as much or as little information as you want.

 If you simply need to create a file quickly you can just enter the name and click Save Donor. You can open the Donor Record and edit the Donor information later to add more details.



Acknowledge publicly

By default, the Acknowledge publicly checkbox is selected. If you leave it selected, the Donor's name will be allowed to appear as "Donated by ... " online, on bid sheets, and in the auction catalog.

To clear the checkbox, click the check mark or the Acknowledge publicly text.

Tags

Tags are available as filtering criteria when selecting Receipts and in Reports.

To add a tag to the Donor, start typing in the Tags field. When you hit the space bar, the tag will automatically be created. 

To remove a tag, click the x in the tag box.

To remove all tags, click the x at the far right of the Tags field.

Address

To show or hide the Address information, click the Address heading.

Enter the address for the donor.

Show address publicly

By default, the Show address publicly checkbox is selected. If you leave it selected, the Donor's address will be allowed to appear online, on bid sheets, and in the auction catalog.

To clear the checkbox, click the check mark or the Show address publicly text.

Click Save Donor after entering Donor information.

Logos

The Logos section shows the images that have been uploaded for the Donors, such as a company logo or brand logo.

To show or hide the Logos information, click the Logos heading.

By adding an image of the Donor's logo, that image will be available to be included in the auction catalog and on gift certificates.

To add an image, see Add Images to Donors.

Shortcuts

On the Donor Dashboard, if you double-click on the name of the Donor you just added, the Donor Record will open and you can make changes.
