Campaigns and funds

In this article:


Campaigns

To view, edit, and add new campaigns, click on the Campaigns link in the sub-navigation. This will bring up a listing of all your campaigns, and from here you can add new campaigns, edit existing campaigns, merge campaigns, or delete any campaigns that are no longer needed.

Adding new campaigns

To add a new campaign, click on the Add campaign button.

Then you can fill out the campaign form and save it.

After this point, it will be available for use in gift entry and reporting on the Fundraising tab.

Editing and deleting campaigns

Campaigns can be edited, merged or deleted from the Campaigns page by clicking on the Actions button next to each campaign name. If you delete a campaign, it will be hidden from view entirely.

Merging campaigns

Occasionally, you may want to merge two or more campaigns together into one. To merge campaigns, you can go to your Fundraising > Campaigns page, find the campaign you want to keep, and click the Actions button. Then choose Merge.

A form pops up that lets you choose the campaign you want to merge.

Once you've done that, click Save and confirm it, and the campaigns will be merged.

Inactive campaigns

All campaigns are active by default. You can make a campaign inactive by checking off the Active checkbox in the Status column, or by editing the campaign and deselecting the Is Active check box. Inactive campaigns are still usable in gift querying and reporting but will no longer appear when you are entering new gifts.

Funds

Adding new funds

Then you can fill out the New fund form and save it. You can optionally assign a fund to a campaign, in which case fund assignments made during gift entry can be restricted by campaign.

After this point, the fund will be available for use in gift entry and reporting on the Fundraising tab.

Editing and deleting funds

Funds can be edited or deleted from the Funds page by clicking on the Edit or Delete icons next to each fund name. If you delete a fund, it will be hidden from view entirely.
