To add a donor, go to Donors > Add A Donor and complete the form.
Each item must have a donor, so a donor record must be created before entering an item.
Create a faux Donor called "Friends of (your organization)" to use for items which don't have actual donors (such as paddle raises etc.)
A Tracking ID field is provided to maintain data integrity if you are importing and exporting a data set to/from another database.
Flagging the donor as anonymous to the public hides their name on the web catalog and all printed materials.
Include a complete mailing address if you intend to use the built-in mail merge feature to mail thank you letters (or receipts).
Providing a website URL creates a hyperlink on a business donor's name within the catalog (unless donor is flagged as anonymous).
You can merge duplicate Donors if both records are worth keeping.
