What You Need to Know:
The software defines Donors as businesses or individuals that donate items to your fundraiser. Cash donations involve payments and are thus recorded as purchase transactions from Buyers. You can edit any User/Buyer record to add the Donor designation, but that will not add their purchases (or cash donations) to the Donor record, because purchases and cash donations are not considered donated items.
Donor information can be imported from a spreadsheet (new customers) or migrated from previous event sites (returning customers).
The first step to adding items to your catalog is to specify the donor, so a Donor record must be created before an item can be entered.
You can add Custom field(s) to your Donor information form to collect/report any custom data you desire.
Donor records can be flagged as Anonymous to hide their identity on all public pages and print materials.
