  1. 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.

  2. Need different "Amount" settings per donation gadget

    Need the ability to customize the system field "Amount" settings per donation gadget - e.g. one donation form lets people fill in their own amount, but another uses pre-set amounts. Right now there's only a single setting for all gadgets.

    Also would be good to have a per-gadget setting for who gets the donation notifications.

  3. in kind donations

    We'd love to have a receipt developed for in-kind donations to our fundraising auctions! The receipt would state a dollar value of the item but would not affect the account statement of the member. This would be in addition to our donation letter we send to the donor.
    Thank you!

  4. Donation report showing payment system fees

    While the system allows you to add in how you receive donations; cash - check - PayPal, when you go to run a report, the system does not take into account PayPal fees. Would be extremely beneficial to have those fees taken out when run report.

    This is the same when hold an event & people with PayPal, run a report & have the fees taken out.

  5. fundraising pages

    My client just finished her first fundraising event which will be an annual event. It was a fun run and we set up individual pages for those participating in fundraising and it was a really nice touch that they could see how much they raised and share the page link to obtain donations.

    https://womenveteransalliance.wildapricot.org/Jaclyn-Kirkwoods-Fundraising-Page/

    The down side is that I had to run a weekly report and email a list of donations to them and the comments that were made with the donations. Then I manually added the comments to the individual page.

    We are now preparing for next years…

  6. More options for donation confirmation e-mails as opposed to one

    There must be different options for donation confirmation letters as opposed to just one. We have various types of donors and those that may send a donation "in memory of" and that would be different than a standard thank you. This is a bit of a problem.

  7. Donor Gadget

    I would like a gadget that displays names of donors by donation level for a particular year or campaign, with the ability of the donor to opt out of being included in this display at the time they make the donation.

  9. Allow pre-select of donation form fields via query parameters

    I want to add QR codes with a donation form URL to our facility, so members can contribute to various areas/funds in WA by scanning the code, logging in and donating.

    I'd like to pre-select a "fund" drop-down and ideally an amount, based on passing them in to WA in the URL query string, such as:

    www.foo.org/donate?area='ice cream stand'&amount=10

    Is there a way to easily do this?

  10. Donation Acknowledgement Internal Field

    Hi! I would like to add a field to my database so that I can track whether or not our organization has sent a Thank You Note to a donor for their donation. This is NOT the same note as the system-generated confirmation of their online donation, this is a personal note written by our Executive Director. Is there a place that I can add a internally viewed field (that would NOT be seen by the donor on his/her profile when they logged in) that is attached to the donor’s individual donation? My ultimate goal is to be able to…

  11. 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.

  13. Donation categorization and tracking/management by member

    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.

  14. Group donations by year

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

  15. Notify Administrator about attempted but failed Donations

    Unless I'm configured wrong I am not being notified when someone attempts, but ultimately fails,in making an online donation.

    They could fail either because their credit card does not go through properly or they simply close the PayPal page. Although the transaction shows up in Wild Apricot as a Pending Donation it would be great if I could also be notified by email like a pending payment event registration.

    I always follow-up with a phone call to these pending donations, but sometimes I miss them if I'm not emailed about it.

  16. 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?

  17. 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

  18. Year End Donation Letter

    Provide a button on the Member's Profile page which allows a member to download/print an annual donation letter. The appearance should be designed by an administrator. The button should indicate the last year for which the data has been generated. Administrator should have a function where after all the financial data has been completed for the previous year, the button is made active for the most recent past year.

  19. Gift Aid

    Gift Aid is a big deal for UK charities.

    Official description: http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/MoneyTaxAndBenefits/ManagingMoney/GivingMoneyToCharity/DG_10015097

    Generally, the way it works is that when a charity asks for a donation, they also ask the donor to tick a box to enable the charity to reclaim an additional tax element from the tax authority (if the donor is a UK tax payer).

    Combined with a date field (which Wild Apricot doesn't yet provide!), we administrators could create a report/search query to pre-fill the relevant form to submit to the tax authority for the reclaim.

  20. Donations and payments for smaller organizations

    Some website hosting businesses have a feature of taking payments without signing up with a third party. They contract with a 3rd party that handles donations, then take their own cut of another couple of percent. The organization can then avoid the overhead costs by paying say 4 or 5 percent to the hosting company. The hosting company provides a single unified interface and take the 1 or 2 percent. That would work for us, particularly since we have to take donations and sells tickets manually.
