With Memorial Day just around the corner, it might be a good time to mention a couple of ways you can keep track of memorial gifts in FundRaiser. We call them "Tribute" gifts, and they can be in memory of departed loved ones, or in honor of living individuals, or even in celebration of some life event or other.
For FundRaiser Professional users, there is a built-in module, appropriately called "Tributes" to handle the recording and subsequent correspondence for these types of gifts. In FundRaiser Select, the Tributes module is available as an "add-on" module for a modest price. But even in Spark, which has no specific facility for tribute tracking, one can devise some practices to follow and report on tribute giving. Let's see how they work.
