Most times, donations are fairly straight forward. You select a fund and you complete the GivingFlow. From time to time, though, donors may wish to provide more detail along with their donation 📝 Some examples?
- 🌏 Giving to a specific team member for a missions trip. Rather than having each individual team member have their own fund, you can have one single fund for the missions trip, and the donor can add a name in the memo field to specify who they want their donation to go towards.
- 📚 Giving to a specific need within a ministry. Perhaps you have a ministry that is running low on supplies, and someone wants to donate money specifically to replenish those supplies, rather than just to the ministry in general. The memo field provides the opportunity to specify that.
- 💰 Splitting transactions. While this is a feature that is coming soon, the memo field gives people the opportunity now to ask that their donation gets split between multiple funds.
