    Desired features:

    • Recurring donations

      Current behavior:
      Wild Apricot only supports one-time donations.

      Workaround

      Use Membership application form since it is possible to setup a membership level like 'regular donor' with automatic recurring payments.

      Desired behavior:
      Support recurring donations directly.

      • Support "Sponsors" in addition to "Donors" at a system level

        Most trade associations do not have "fundraisers" but more so "sponsors" the system needs to allow for this and create invoices for it. There is to much back end rigging needed to offer annual sponsorships & event sponsorships.

        • Multiple, separately customizable donation forms or Donation campaigns

          My organization runs different campaigns a year targeted towards different groups. We need several versions of the donation form, however WA allows for only one. Plus, some of our campaigns are sponsorships, not donations, while others are underwriting opportunities. We also need the ability for our members and friends to sign up for more than one level of sponsorship at once.

          Some of the donation forms would be used on the public site, while another is just for members.

          Is this a possibility for future releases? So far I have my organization sold on WA, except for this little snag.

          • Customize contact fields to include on donation form

            Hi guys.

            Would it be possible to make the donation function page's contact fields editable, much like the current page that allows people to sign up for the email newsletter?

            Right now, it defaults to all required contact information, which makes sense for anyone applying to our organization for membership or registering for an event, but does not make sense for people who only want to donate to us.

            Thanks!
            Nathan

              We have started development of the feature. It will be published in 5.11 release on 15th May.

              I’m glad to announce ability to control which common and donation fields appear on each Donation form. The workflow will be similar as setting up Subscription form gadget.

              We’ll keep you updated on progress

            • Manual donations or pledges

              A big selling point for my board in adopting WA is that I promised them that we could accommodate all kinds of payments for new and renewing members. I have found two areas where WA does not currently do what I expected:

              * for donations, there is not manual payment option, only online. My most financially capable donors are older and really, really like getting an invoice and mailing in a check On the whole, I love WA! These, and a few other little feature/functions are the only issues I've got. And, user support has been fantastic. I'm in the…

              • Donation categorization and tracking/management by member. To support political contribution legal requirements.

                Provide different contribution to types (i.e. PAC and Small Donor Committee). Include in membership record to allow individual member donations tracking by type, and ability to limit donations to categories to satisfy legal requirements. Donation as a advanced search type and reports by donation type by member would provide capability to encourage members and manage the legal requirements.

                • PDF for the official tax Donation Receipt

                  We are just in the midst of switching over to wild apricot and I was very disappointed that when donations are made there is no option to send the official tax receipt as a PDF as it is not secure to send it as an email since it is too easy to change up the donation amount and date ect. Our current system sends an email after donation had been received thanking them and then letting them know they will receive a their tax receipt in another email attached as PDF please see email below

                  • integrate the PayPal Giving Fund into Wild Apricot - so that we don't have to pay the transaction fees for donations

                    Nonprofits that are PayPal Giving Fund members can receive donations from PayPal and Ebay customers without any transaction fees. It would be very useful if there were an option in the donate widget that would allow this option.

                    • Tracking donations with other member activity

                      Hi- as far as I can tell we are not able to pull into one document (other than a statement) all of a member's activity such as their donations, events and membership. Each silo has that information, but it isn't aggregated into one document we can use for fundraising purposes. Nor it is seemingly possible to combine that information from all members.

                      Donations reports only give sums, and isn't a detail list.

                      We are both a member organization as well as dependent on fundraising-and I am not sure that I can gather into one place the fundraising info I need.…

                      • In honor of donations

                        Is there a way to allow donors to give a gift in someone else's name? And, is there a way to automatically notify the person who the donations was made on behalf?

                        • Customizing Donation receipt - adding previous donations

                          Is it possible to print all the donations given by a donor on one receipt with dates. Right now we can only print one donation given per donor on one receipt. I was also wondering if we could add all the donations and put in a total donations given for year.

                          Thankyou,

                          MA

                          • Customizing the donation confirmation page

                            Hello,

                            Two suggestions for the donation confirmation / receipt page that a person gets after they make an online donation:

                            1) Make the page include the name of the organization that the person donated to. Currently, the page shows the date and amount of the donation, but not the name of the organization. Donors will want to have that info for their records.

                            2) Make it possible for administrators to customize this page.

                            Thanks!

                            Bernadette

                            • Categorizing donations

                              I would like to be to assign specific donation ranges to categories and include them in the donations export. For example $100.00 - $249.99: Bronze, $250.00 - $499.99: Silver, etc. I would also like to export these categories with the donation file so I can count and summarize by these categories.

                                • Track donations of goods by donors

                                  We'd like to be able to manually enter donations of goods by donors, with the ability to have multiple donation records for each donor. In this way we could keep track of donors who give items for our yearly auctions, and keep track of what they donate each year. It would be an 'item' record that is manually entered by admin, just like the monetary donation record that is automatically entered when someone donates online, and would be "owned" by the donor record.

                                    I have some donations coming in that are paid by check. I have figured out how to manually record them in the Donations and can send a donation receipt, but cannot figure out how to send the Donation confirmation email (Thank you letter) manually and get the macros to populate. It would be nice to be able to acknowledge manual donations without going through a lot of manual steps. Has anyone come up with a quick way to do this?

                                    • Recording donations from non-contacts

                                      In the "Record Donation" page, donor details, allow option to create a new contact immediately using the details provided where the donor does not have a record in the organization. Current method of adding a contact first, followed by donation, is somewhat cumbersome.

                                      • Show/Hide Donation Fund Names

                                        Would like to be able to hide donation fund names of previous/completed fund raising efforts from the donation module visible to members when they donate. For example, a 2014 playground fund raising is complete, donors' member profiles have related receipts and administrators have corresponding records available. The playground monies are spent.

                                        In 2015 another playground fund raiser is starter. Members attempt to donate and both the 2014 playground and 2015 playground fund names are visible. This leads to confusion and questions (unless the 2014 playground fund name is hidden).

                                        Thank you.

                                        • Group donations by year

                                          It would be helpful if we could group our donations by fiscal year.
