  1. 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.

  2. Charging credit cards for donations in admin view

    Currently the ability to charge a credit card for a donation is not available on the admin side. We get calls from members who wish to donate and we can't charge their card for their donation. We have had to create an event called "Donations" so we can charge cards. That leaves the member profile not showing donations.

  3. 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.…

  4. 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 e-commerce…

  5. 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.

  6. Ability to donate during membership application/renewal or event registration

    Current features:
    Visitors/members are not prompted to make donation while they are performing other payments (e.g. membership renewals, event registrations,etc)

    Desired features:
    Admins have the ability to enable donations to be made during event registrations, membership applications/renewals or other payments.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Group donations by year

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

  20. 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.
