The Donation Category Code Table values are displayed in the Description Tab on the Donation Campaign set up window and are used to categorize donations for online sales.

items appear online in the sort order (alphabetical) and the external name is used to categorize and provide headers for each group. You can access various categories online using direct links in emails or web pages

Suggested values to enter into this code table for external name are:

  • Gifts to Capital Campaign
  • Donations to Individual Campaigns
  • Support our Educational outreach

There are 3 fields:

  • External Name - see above
  • Internal Name - which can be the same as external name, or if you prefer a different set of names, for internal use, enter them instead
  • Sort order - which is the order in which the categories will be displayed online. You may want this to be different than the alphabetical sort order of the names for marketing purposes. Eg, Individual Donations are in the middle of the alphabet, but you may want them to be first in the online web page, so make the sort order for this a a '1' and for Gift Certificates, make that a 2 or a 3, etc.
