FundRaiser Software provides many tools for managing event participation and donation. Users of FundRaiser Pro have access to the Campaigns and Events Module, which will track participation, donations, sponsorships, and provides detailed reporting. If you’re interested in the Campaigns and Events Module, you’re encouraged to sign up for the next training class.
However, even without the Campaigns and Events Module, you can keep track of campaign participation several ways. The Motivation Code records what motivated someone to give, and that’s usually because they attended an event or received a mailer. Using a unique motivation code will allow you to run reports as well as create groupings based off of event donations.
Category codes will also allow you to note who participates in events. For example, if you send a letter through mass mailings using a grouping, in FundRaiser Select and Professional, you can add a corresponding category code so you know immediately who received the mailing. This will help you to run reports and use this information in groupings.
