To help prioritize fundraising efforts and avoid awkward interactions, you can mark a constituent or related contact as deceased when they pass away. When you mark an individual as deceased, Deceased appears:
With their name on their record and their spouse's record
Next to their name in search results
With their name under Relationships on a related constituent's record
In the Constituent summary column in a list of constituents, actions, and opportunities
Under Constituent summary or Summary on the record of a constituent or contact, you can also view the date saved when they were marked as deceased.
On the record of the constituent or contact, select Mark as, Deceased.
If necessary, enter a date your organization saves for deceased individuals, such as when they passed away or were marked as deceased.
Select Mark deceased.
To remove the deceased status from a constituent or related contact, such as if you marked them as such in error, select Mark as, Not deceased on their record.
Note: In the database view, deceased constituents still appear in the results of your static queries and query lists. If a dynamic query's set to exclude deceased or inactive constituents, they're automatically removed from the results the next time the query's run.
