This month's release includes several improvements to existing features that will make your daily tasks much easier. While our team is working on a few major upcoming product releases, we're also dedicated to continually improving your Funraise experience by listening to you and acting on your feedback about existing functionality. Thank you for the feedback!

What's New

Improved universal Supporter search

When you're searching for a Supporter in the platform's universal search bar, the results are now scrollable and are not limited, making it easier for you to find what you're looking for.

Supporter tags on fundraiser signups

You can now automatically add tags to a Supporter when they sign up to fundraise, similar to the way you add tags to a Supporter when they donate through a particular form. This is helpful to identify which Supporters have fundraised for a particular campaign.

More data fields in Fundraising Intelligence

Many new fields have been added to Funraise's custom reporting feature. These new data points are available with the Transactions data source:

Transaction data

  • Comment

  • Frequency

  • Recurring sequence

  • UTM data

  • Dedication

  • Currency

  • Memo

  • Operations Tip

  • In-kind description

  • Imported

Supporter data

  • Assigned to Email

  • First Donation Date

  • Imported

Supporter merge tags with Ticket Order emails

You can now use Supporter data merge tags in the Ticket Order email.

Coming soon!

Campaign Site templates

Campaign Site templates for Funraise's new site editor will be available soon. With new templates, you'll be able to start your site with professional designs built for specific fundraising needs: donation pages, monthly donor programs, crowdfunding, and events.

Bulk uploads and edits on Transactions

Now that Supporter records can be added and edited en masse, we'll be rolling out the same functionality for Transaction records.

Fundraising Commitments

Soon, you'll be able to require fundraisers to raise a specific amount and then charge their payment method for any amount they were not able to fundraise through their page.

Increased fundraiser page customization

We're also working on visual and functional enhancements to peer-to-peer fundraiser pages that will enable fundraisers to further personalize their pages with text and media content.


New feature sunset announcement

The Yearly Donation Summary Email Automation will be sunset on August 1, 2021. At this time, the Yearly Donation Summary Email Automation will no longer be available in the platform and the automation will no longer send emails.

This feature is being sunset in favor of the functionality introduced with Funraise's Giving App. The Giving App is a mobile portal where donors can view their historic donations and access their yearly donation summary at their convenience. You will still be able to manually send Supporters a Yearly Donation Summary PDF by email.

Feature Sunsetting Reminders

In an effort to deliver the world's best fundraising platform, we sometimes have to say goodbye to features or integrations that aren't up to par or that have superior alternatives. We want to let you know about a few items that have an end-of-life date set. If you have any questions about these changes, contact your Success Manager.

  • Amply integration: The Amply integration will be sunset on July 1, 2021. This integration can be replaced with Funraise's Double the Donation integration. For those of you using Amply today, your Success Manager can help you transition.

  • Yearly Donation Summary Email Automation: The Yearly Donation Summary Email Automation will be sunset on August 1, 2021.

  • Trends: Trends will be sunset on July 1, 2021. Trends is only used by organizations without Fundraising Intelligence. We'll be removing Trends to further invest in Fundraising Intelligence as Funraise's premier reporting tool.

  • Legacy Sites: Legacy Campaign Sites (any site created before January 8, 2021) will be sunset on Jan 1, 2022. This sunset date was previously July 1, 2021, but thanks to feedback from a few organizations, we've changed the date to accommodate ongoing 2021 campaigns.
