RaiseDonors Integration

What Actions Trigger an Integration to Kindful?

Currently, RaiseDonors only supports three of these events with Kindful:

  • New Donation (one-time and/or recurring)
  • Refunding donation
  • Updating donor information. Whether the donor or admins makes changes, those will be pushed to Kindful.

All other events are currently ignored.

Does Kindful Support RaiseDonor's Fund Distribution?

Although Kindful allows for split transactions natively, this integration does not support split fund gifts. RaiseDonors will include any fund allocation information in the gift's notes field. You can monitor incoming gifts and read the notes field to see if multiple funds allocations are provided.

Not at this time.

How are Media Attributions Indicated in Kindful?

How are Donations with Products, Shipping Address, Fair Market Value, and Tax Deductible vs Non-Tax Deductible Shown?

If a donation in RaiseDonors includes a product, the gift sent to Kindful will include a non-tax deductible amount, equal to the fair market value as indicated in RaiseDonors. The shipping address will be included in the gift comments.

Do Changes Made in the Donor Portal Sync?

Any changes the donor makes to his/her contact information directly from RaiseDonors will be sent to Kindful. 

Do Historical RaiseDonors Transactions Sync to Kindful By Default?

This is a "point-in-time" integration, which means that everything received in RaiseDonors after the integration is connected will sync, and nothing in your RaiseDonors account prior to connecting will sync to Kindful.
