Count every coin, thank every donor

Offline donations

Finally, a smoother way to sync offline donations with your online donation management system. Add and import cash, donation checks, and historical transaction data to keep track of all your donor activity and acknowledgments in one reliable place.

Give each offline donation the attention it deserves

Record cash or check donations one at a time with Givebutter’s user-friendly offline donation form. Adding gifts this way also gives you the option to send an automatic donation receipt and custom thank you message with your organization’s branding.

Breathe easy with time-saving tools

Add donations to your database in bulk with our user-friendly transaction import template. This method doesn’t trigger an automatic receipt, which makes it ideal for importing historical data or donations from offline events or mail campaigns that you’ve already acknowledged.

See the full picture

Get a clearer view of your fundraising impact by tracking offline donations alongside your online donations, ticket sales, recurring donations, and Tap to Pay transactions. Adding an offline donation updates your fundraising progress bars, team totals, and campaign supporter feeds so you can celebrate every single donation.

Never miss a chance to say thank you

With just a single click, you can easily check which offline donations have already been acknowledged and which ones require your attention. Mark gifts as acknowledged, customize donation receipts, add tags or notes to new donor profiles, and engage donors using Givebutter’s built-in nonprofit marketing tools, which include email, text, and direct mail capabilities.

Track your offline donations as easily as your online ones

Seamlessly sync with existing donor data

Imported data automatically syncs to the right contact records or creates a new profile to start recording your supporter’s journey.

Customize how you handle check donations

Choose whether your online donation forms offer “Mail a check” as a payment method, or opt to leave it out and add each donation check to your CRM manually as they come in.

Get the full picture of your donor’s giving history

Add historical donor data and backdate records to give you a true reflection of your offline donor’s history and how long they’ve supported your cause.

We used the giving form built into Givebutter, and it took care of everything. Donors could make a pledge and then follow up by sending a check, which was really important to us because it was a telethon. We wanted people calling in. We wanted to be able to take donations offline. Ultimately, that was the number one reason we chose Givebutter—because while all of the online donations were processing in real time on the backend, we were able to enter donation info that was coming in through the phones.
