Donate pages – Next Suggested Gift

Using Highest Previous Contribution (HPC), you can offer your donors a dynamic display of ‘Next Suggested Gifts’ ranges on a donation page

Create a Next Suggested Gift string

To use this tool in page-builder you will first need to set up the component under Pages > Components > Next Suggested Gift.

To create a new ‘Next Suggested Gift’ string just click .

This will open the Suggested Gift editor where you can create your string rules.

Below is a description of the fields and what you should enter.

Field

Description

Name

This is the name of the ‘NSG’ component. This name will be displayed internally and in page-builder, so a descriptive name is useful.

Notes

Single Giving

To set up a a range of donation amounts click and fill in the variables. For example, you may wish to try and increase those supporters whose Highest Previous Contribution was between $0 and $20, by 20%. Therefore, add the range and then define the Next Suggested Gift with its options.

When adding ranges to the ‘Single Giving’ tab, these Next Suggested Gift options are specific to a supporter giving a single gift.

Build Suggestion Strings

If you would like to add NSG strings click the pencil icon then click the plus sign .

You can then set up the other values the donor will see in the donation string by choosing plus or minus, entering the numeric value, and choosing % or $. For example if you wanted the value to be 25% higher than the first NSG value you would use:

Continue adding NSG values until you have the string you want to display. You can preview your string in the right box.

What if the supporter would rather ‘Give Monthly’? The ‘Recurring Giving’ tab allows you to define ranges and ‘Next Suggested Gift’ to be based on a support selecting to give monthly instead.

Once you have saved your NSG component you can activate it by clicking the name of the NSG and then clicking the LAUNCH button.

Once an NSG component has been launched it cannot be edited as a safeguard for reporting.

If you are finished using an NSG component, you can remove it from page-builder by clicking the RETIRE button.

You can see a list of pages using the NSG component by clicking .
