If a donor or a fundraiser sends in a check, you can now enter that into your reports so it will show up with all your other donations. This also enables you to acknowledge offline donors and even add offline donations to individual fundraising pages, if the page owner has not done so him- or herself.
To add a new offline donation, sign in to your account and click the Events tab.
Choose the event with which the donation is associated - there's also a new "Grassroots fundraising" event that contains all your fundraisers who are raising money independently.
Click Offline - Received on the left to see a list of offline donations that you have already marked as received. At the bottom of this list is a button labeled Add offline donation. Click this to enter a new check or cash donation that is not already listed on your report.
Once you're satisfied with everything, you can click Confirm. Please bear in mind that once you have confirmed the donation, its details cannot be changed!
When you click Confirm, an email will be sent to the fundraiser and to the donor (if the donor's email address is provided) with receipt details, just the same as the confirmation email we send to online donors.
