Set Suggested Donation

There are a four ways to set a suggested donation for patrons when sending out the subscription renewal notices. You can set:
  1. a specific suggested donation for all subscriptions - for example $100.00, which is set as an option when printing renewal notices
  2. a suggestion that is a percentage value of the total subscription - for example 15%, which is set as an option when printing renewal notices
  3. a different suggested amount for each patron - which is entered directly on the favourite seats subscription window.
  4. a custom value for each donor based on a calculation from prior donation history (which is described below)

 

Or, a variation on the above 4 options where you:
  • assign something based on past history.
  • then look at the bands of suggested donations (eg 100-125, 200-250) .. and then re-assign some donors a new specific donation that is a manual round-up or to the next giving level.

    This would mean:

    • running the process once to set the initial amount
    • then re-running it for selected patrons to set specific amounts as much as you want.

 

Setting a suggestion based on Historical Giving

Option 4 allows you to select one or more subscriptions and calculate a custom amount based on past giving history. You can use this feature:

  • as many times as you want to recalculate or replace any existing suggested donation
  • differently for groups of subscribers so that opening night subscribers might use different set of criteria than the rest of the run
  • to over-ride some previous settings for one or more patrons

To use the feature:

  1. Open the window to manage patron subscriptions
  2. On the bottom left corner, select one or more subscriptions
  3. Right-click to see the context menu.
  4. Select 'Select Suggested Donation for Subscriptions' from the menu

Internal Description The internal description given to the season package suitable for use within Theatre Manager.
Status Indicates if the season package is available for use.
Fiscal Year The season renewal year that the season package is for.
External Description The external description given to the season package suitable for use on the web site and season renewal notices.
Combo Package Indicates that this season package is an combo (or umbrella package) made up of one or more other season packages. The other season packages have the favourite seats for each venue - which allows selling or renewing a subscription that is in multiple venues. For example:
  • If you have a 5 show series in your main venue, then you'd give the patron a subscription for that 5 show series along with favourite seats - lets call that 'Main Stage Package'.
  • If there is a second venue that might have 3 events in the season, then you would assign the patron a subscription package in the second venue - lets call that 'Auxiliary Package'.
  • then you would make a third subscription package that is Combo Package that contains both the 'Main Stage Package' and the 'Auxiliary Package' in it.
Using this approach, Theatre Manager will have a record of the favourite seats a patron has in each venue, making it easy to renew. It also make it easy for the patron to create a new subscription online as the web sales will take the person thought picking seats in both control houses as part of the sales process.

Note: if you do not want the individual package to be purchased, do not make them for sale online - only make the combo package for sale online.
