Boost moral - Don't forget to confirm offline pledges

For pledges received offline and recorded into the system by your volunteer fundraisers as pending donations, all your staff has to do is:

  • Search for the pledge form ID (or registrant name).
  • With the click of a button, confirm one, multiple or all donations.
  • You can also correct typing errors if the donor’s contact information was input incorrectly.
  • There are no transaction charges associated with the importation of offline pledges.
  • For Canadian charities able to issue tax receipts: If you wish to send an encrypted e-tax receipt along with your acknowledgement, you can use the GiftTool eTax Receipts feature to issue receipts for offline pledges with a click of a button. ($0.35 per eTax receipt issued)

Should your volunteer fundraisers forget to record offline pledges into their account, your staff can:

  • Easily input the information into an Excel document, and
  • Upload the pledges into the system with a click of the button.
  • Saves your staff significant input time, as they do not need to navigate your online donation form to input each donation separately.
