Donation Pages: Processing In Memoriam/Honor gifts

You can allow supporters to donate In Memoriam on a standard donation page. The supporter can also choose who to inform of the gift, and who the gift is being given in honour to.

In order to process In Memoriam/Honor donations through your Engaging Networks donation pages you simply need to add an additional field to the page to flag the gift as ‘In Memoriam’ in the data.

This video takes you through how to add an “In Memoriam” field on your page.

Form fields

Standard donation pages are used for In Memoriam donations. In addition to standard fields like credit card number, email address and donation amount, you will need to add the ‘In Memoriam’ fields to your donation page. 

This needs to be set to the value Y if the supporter chooses this. A checkbox is a recommended way to take this value. 

If the value is set to anything other than Y it will not record it as an In Memoriam gift

Form Field Value Description
In Memoriam Alpha Submitting ‘Y’ will flag the transaction as a Fundraising In Memoriam (FIM). Any other value will result in the memoriam fields being ignored.

Additional optional fields can also be added to store other Memoriam values. The list of those fields can be found here

Viewing and exporting In Memoriam gifts

You can view In Memoriam gifts in the Lookup Supporter gadgets. An In Memoriam gift will display as a single FIM transaction.

  • Campaign Data 5 – In Memoriam (Y or N)
  • Campaign Data 10 – Reason for gift
  • Campaign Data 11 – Honoree Name
  • Campaign Data 12 – Inform Name
  • Campaign Data 13 – Inform Email Address
  • Campaign Data 14 – Inform Address 1
  • Campaign Data 15 – Inform Address 2
  • Campaign Data 16 – Inform City
  • Campaign Data 17 – Inform Region
  • Campaign Data 18 – Inform Postcode
