Editing Donations

REACH allows an organization’s admin to edit certain details in a Supporter’s one-time or recurring donation(s) from the Admin Console.

Editing a one-time donation

In a one-time donation you can can add or edit the Date, Purpose, Attach to a Pledge, Reference Number (typically from your payment gateway), Tax Status, Keep the Donor or the Amount Anonymous, Add Notes and Add a Soft Credit.

Note: You cannot edit the donation amount or the payment method used.

If you need to change the amount (Offline only), delete the donation and create a new one with the new amount.

If you need to change the donation Purpose and attach the donation to a Sponsorship, you must first make sure the sponsorship relationship has been set up.

To edit the donation:

  • Next to the Donation you wish to edit, click on Actions, then Edit Donation
  • Make your changes in the donation
