Giving History is a record that contains comprehensive data on giving by a specific donor to a specific campaign —donor in this case meaning either a household or an organization. Tracking giving per campaign for each household and organization allows detailed historical tracking and comparison across multiple years and campaigns.

When thinking about donors in Veracross, it is important to think of them as households and organizations, not individuals. Giving History records help to organize household and organization giving per campaign. Giving History records provide a comprehensive way to create queries and reports on donor giving.
