Recording Anonymous Contributions

To enter anonymous contributions (loose plate donations):

  1. Go to More > Contributions.
  2. Make sure the dropdown is set to "Person" rather than Envelope Number or Check Scanner.
  3. Select the "Anonymous" checkbox to the right of the text field.
  4. Enter the rest of the contribution details and click "Add Contribution."

  • How does one import anonymous contributions?

  • Hello @george!

    Great question. Happy to help. This article will be most helpful: Import Giving

    You will simply need to use the Breeze template and then replace Breeze ID with the word anonymous. :) 

    Hope this is helpful.

    Happy Breezing! 

  • What steps need to be accomplished by donors so they are not recorded as anonymous?  Is there a step by step process we can give our members to make sure they are not giving anonymously?

    Thank you

    Hey Rich! As long as your members do not have access to the "Contributions" module in Breeze, they should never be able to input their own donation information as "anonymous." In Online Giving, they are always able to submit their credit card / ACH gift, but there will always be information collected like their Name, Email and Physical Address collected for your records. To make sure members don't have this contribution access, check out Editing a Role and to associate online contributions that might be showing as anonymous somewhere, check out Associating Contributions With Profiles

    I hope this helps!
