What data is contained in the gift summary
The gift summary shows highlights, including the first gift, the most recent gift, the largest gift, and the constituent's consecutive years of giving.
Below this data, you see a breakdown of giving by gift type. This breakdown has two columns, one for all dates and one for this year. Date ranges can be changed, so you can compare this year to last year or other years to each other.
Totals for gift types that include other income and related gifts are shown below the fundraising information.
How the numbers are calculated
- First: The first contribution and date
- Latest: The most recent contribution and date
- Largest: The biggest single contribution and date
- Consecutive years: The constituent's consecutive years of giving
- Status: The constituent's giving status
- Goals: Goals associated with the constituent
- By gift type: A list of each gift by type with a count and total amount. Clicking these links will bring up a list of all gifts by type
- Total value: This number is the sum of all contributions (cash and otherwise), including gifts, in-kind donations, pledges, soft credits, and matching gifts.
LGL automatically calculates giving status information based on the constituent’s giving history.
