Recognitions include programs and levels that define requirements for constituent giving recognition. Recognitions require a minimum gift amount for inclusion in a level. The recognition is achieved after the sum of multiple gift amounts is calculated.
For example, constituents must donate $3,000 to achieve recognition in the Silver level in the President’s Circle program. Mark Adamson achieved recognition in this level after donating his third gift of $1,250 this year. Before Mark donated his third gift, his giving total for the year was $2,500. After his third donation, the recognition was achieved.
Note: Recognition can also be achieved for a single gift if the amount satisfies the minimum amount requirement. However, if the gift amount exceeds the maximum amount for a single donation for the program, the constituent does not receive recognition. For example, constituents must donate $2,000 to achieve recognition in the Bronze level in the President’s Circle program. The maximum gift amount for a single gift for the program is $2,500. A constituent donates a single gift of $2,750. The constituent does not receive recognition in the Bronze level because the donation amount exceeds the maximum gift amount for the program.
