Gift Types

Depending on your fundraising efforts and constituent relationships, your organization may receive many different types of charitable gifts.

Tip: In addition to gifts your organization receives directly from donors, you might also track when constituents influence contributions from others. For more information about indirect giving, see Soft Credits.

Tip: To further define a gift, your organization can also select a subtype. For example, you may use a subtype of Technology to help describe a gift-in-kind of computer equipment. In the database view, your organization can set up gift subtypes in Tables under Configuration.
