Setting up tribute donations

When you add the Tribute Gift Editor to your donation page, donors have the option to indicate if their donation is a tribute. They can choose to make their donation in honor, in recognition, or in memory of someone and enter a tribute message. If they choose to notify someone of their donation, the recipient information they enter creates a new contact in your database. The creation of duplicate contacts is minimized by checking to see if another contact already exists with the same name, address and/or email.

To allow tribute donations, add the Tribute Gift Editor to a content record that contains the Donation Creator and then create a connection between the two content items. Allow donors to request a notification of their gift by configuring the Tribute Gift Editor to display the notification option. Once a donor submits a gift with a request to notify a contact, staff users are able to print and/or email a notification for the specified tributee.
