  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Single donation for multiple funds

    Currently these is no way to direct a single donation to multiple funds. Our organization has several restricted funds, and many members will make a single donation but specify that there donation be applied to multiple funds. Example: A single donation of $75 is made, however the donator specifies that $25 goes to fund A, $25 goes to fund B and $25 goes to fund C. Having this capability would be an asset to our organizations donation/fundraising efforts.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

    Dear xxxx:
    Thank you for…

  7. Bulk Donation Upload

    Bulk Donation data upload. It should work pretty similar to bulk membership upload. For those of us migrating from other systems, this is a must-have solution unless you want to pay someone to upload 20 years of data.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.…

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
