Use Recognition name when entering a Donation if the Donor wishes to be recognized by a particular name that is different from their Profile name. 


If there is no recognition name entered, the system will use the first and last or the household name from the Profile.

  • Recognition name is only associated with that donation and will not change the Profile name.

The Recognition name will show up on the Donation report in the column after the name of the Donor, which may be helpful for your Annual report where some of your donors wish to be recognized by a formal name or a nickname, etc.
