Donors may not sport haircuts as cool as the New Wave bands of the 80s, but they remain just as noticeable in nonprofit organizations. Maximize the value these patrons offer and better track donations through recent enhancements: pledges, waived benefits and combined “AddOn” packages.
Take full advantage of this initial release to build pledges within a particular campaign. These contributions can be one-time or recurring, and prior gifts can be reassigned towards a pledge. Assign pledges to specific campaigns with the Add Pledge button in the bottom-right portion of the Patron Profile page. And see the Pledge Report, under the main Reports tab, for an overview of these pledges and the progress donors are making towards your campaign goals. This is the first of many more pledge features to come.
Donors now have the option to waive benefits right when making a donation so more of their gift goes directly to your programming. Plus, with the customizable language and branding in OvationTix, you can tell donors about the value of their gift throughout the contribution transaction: from when they first land on your donation page, to when they are making the gift through OvationTix and even in future acknowledgements. You also can customize your messaging in the donation receipt and on subsequent email and postal communications with your donors. Contact Client Services for further information if you are not already using this functionality. And stay tuned for news about enhanced reporting on this new donor feature as it is rolled out.
Combine benefits from multiple packages as “AddOns” to one main “parent” package. Your company’s member or subscriber benefits might comprise complimentary tickets to one series, discounted tickets to another, and advanced access to a yet another—and with “AddOn” you can offer all this in one main package! Fundraisers and marketers alike will see advantages of this recent enhancement. Check out the in-application tutorial and feedback opportunity available when building or editing a Flexible Package.
