Soft Credits

With soft credits, you can recognize multiple constituents for a gift. For example, in addition to the donor, you may want to credit a constituent for the giving of their spouse or foundation. This recognition helps track how much a constituent gives indirectly as they influence another constituent's gifts.

Note: In the database view, you can manage this recognition on the Soft Credit tab of the gift record. From a constituent's record, you can also select whether to automatically credit the constituent for gifts from a spouse or organization relationship.
