  1. More donor information

    The ability to add more information about our donors. Since many nonprofits use Wild Apricot, the ability to add information about income, education, business connections, biographical information, interests, age, etc, would be exceptionally useful.

    • Pledge Donation/Giving Levels

      Are you planning to modify the software to support Pledge Donation/Giving Levels by :
      1. Allowing members to select a Pledge Donation/Giving Level
      2. Tracking members progress toward their pledge?
      3. Auto-generating emails during Pledge Donation cycle.
      This functionality would be similar to Membership Levels

      • importing donations

        We need to be able to import a list of donations from a spreadsheet. We collect a lot of donations by check, and entering them one at a time is time consuming and prone to error. Thanks.

        • Make a Donation via Text Message

          1) allow SMS Text of a keyword (e.g. donation category/type) to Short Number
          2) WA asks how much would you like to donate to the 'org' 'keyword description'
          3) device holder sends amount 'XXX'
          4) WA sends confirmation text w/URL for needed completion activities in response
          5) Donor completes
          6) WA puts donation through payments processing as set up on WA website

          :-)

          • Donation Confirmation emails

            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.

              • 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.

                • 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…

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.…

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • 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!

                                • 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.

                                  • 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…

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
