Updating Giving Funds

If you use year-based giving funds to manage pledges, you may have recurring gifts or Engage Giving Sets that need to move from one year to the next.

For example, your giving funds are configured as follows:

  • General 2020
  • General 2021
  • General 2022
  • General 2023

At the end of 2021 you need any recurring giving to move from General 2021 to General 2022. You also need to update Engage to accept gifts to General 2022 instead of General 2021.

Updating Recurring Gifts

There are two approaches to make this change to recurring gifts—manually and with Suran's help by contacting support (RECOMMENDED).

Contact Support

If you are enrolled in Data Hosting or have a SAAS subscription, CDM+ Support can migrate recurring giving for you from one fund to another. To make this request, email with the following information:

  1. Your organization's name and location
  2. Your database name (found in CDM+ under About → System Information)
  3. The name of the previous year giving fund you want to stop using
  4. The name of the new year giving find you want to which gifts should move
  5. If you need existing contributions given after a specific date to the previous year's fund to move to the new fund
  6. The date from which contributions should move funds (if applicable)

CDM+ Support will raise a request with our Data Services team to make this change. You will receive email confirmation once the change is complete.

Data Services and CDM+ Support can only move recurring giving. If you need to change the funds on your Engage Giving Sets follow the process outlined below to do so.
