Business Donors

Created on:
Updated on:

Donors who give from both personal and business accounts can create separate donor profiles so that they receive separate Giving statements for each account at the end of the year.

In Giving, donor profiles are a unique combination of two things: the donor's name and their email address. A donor can maintain both a business and personal profile under the same name, but with a different email address for each profile.

In the example below, Gene has two Giving profiles, each with a different email address.

Gene's personal donor account:

First Name:

Gene

Last Name:

Parmesan

Email:

geneparm@gmail.com

Gene's business donor account:

First Name:

Gene

Last Name:

Parmesan

Email:

sales@bestdetectives.com

He'll be able to log into Church Center and donate using different payment methods to avoid confusing his personal and business accounts. He'll receive email receipts at different email addresses each time he gives and will have two end-of-year statements.

Tip

When running a search for Gene, your administrators will see two donors with the same name. To let your other admins know that this is expected (they should not be merged), make sure to add a note to Gene's donor profiles.
