Acknowledgement Letters
You can generate, edit, and print PDF development acknowledgment letters in Axiom, merging in fields relevant to the particular donations.
Auto-Recurring Donations
Some pledge installments are guaranteed to be paid on-time in a recurring nature, the most common example being payroll deductions. In order to reduce data entry, these pledges can be marked as auto-recurring so the system will create donations automatically on the installment date for the installment amount.
Donations
There are many different kinds of donations a school can receive. For any donation there are some standard pieces of information that should always be entered.
Donor Giving Categories
Donor Giving Categories (sometimes referred to as Giving Clubs) are categories defined by the school to identify donors who have given at a particular level.
Foundation & Organization Soft Credits
Many gifts come in from foundations and matching organizations that may cause confusion with development offices on how to handle data entry and reporting.
Gift Batch Entry
You may wish to create gift records (i.e. donations and/or pledges) in batch, rather than adding them one-by-one using the “Add a Donation/Pledge” links.
Making an Online Gift
When donors open the Online Giving Form, from any area in which the school has made the link available, they will be asked the question “How much would you like to give?”
