In memory of donations?

Postby janetm2 » Tue Dec 04, 2012 1:58 pm

Hi I am wondering if the donation area has in memory of information and I missed it or if it could be added? It may be too much work but it may help us. On another site they just had entries for the deceased and then the family point of contact and address so I think that could automatically sent the info usually without the dollar amount. I will just ask folks to let me know they donated and their address so the family can sent acknowledge ment. Wish I were retired so I could help with this section. Thanks,
Janet

I'm sorry, Janet, we don't currently have that set up. We will have to do some research into it. If you have any instructions on how to go about this let me know. Also, if you could give me a link to the site that I could go to that has this capability that would be helpful.

Thanks,

Violet

Violet,
This is a relatively recent site that had that and then some but the basics should be viewable:
www.woundedwarriorproject.org/
Thanks again,
Janet

Violet,
The following (changing Honoree to memorial - I'll have to check another site for appropriate term) is the additional information needed to ensure the deceased is listed and then the family is notified and I believe most charities do not disclose the donation amount. Also, it may be a time or money saver if the acknowledgment information included an email address if known so you could just email to the family and they can get the donator's name and address to send the formal mailed card via their email.

Thanks but I am starting to blur on this and not sure I can notice any more to suggest for changes but you can review and compare to see what you might want to put on the HOPE donation. I believe we could be missing some good donations without this section and we need all the help we can get. Wish I was retired and able to do this without so many other things to handle.

Thanks Janet. I will have to research this some more and run it by the HOPE board of directors. Our current policy is that for privacy reasons we do not give out donor addresses or names. I have sent you an e-mail on what we might be able to do for your family's situation.

Best regards,

Violet

Violet,
Thanks and it is clearly up to the HOPE directors as to whether they want to add this feature and how, research would be best. I realized today that I just need to get with the current trends but so hard when I grew up we always sent a thank you and that may not really be the policy nowadays with the privacy acts. Many thanks for your other email and willingness to do what you can and taking time for it, I really appreciate it. As everyone who goes through these situations it is really hard to think clearly. Hoping the fog lifts soon, at least my PT put me back in alignment, fixed the rotation and gave the feet a work over so maybe my physical pain will go down a bit. Of course if anything like when my Mom passed the emotional stuff and partial fog stuck around for months, at least I know that and won't worry why it is not clearing. Thanks to everyone for their support.

Janet, I'm sorry you are going through this stressful time.

We have never been asked about "In Memory of" donations before -- we are a fairly new organization. Now that you have brought it to our attention I think it is a good idea to have once we can get it worked out.

Thanks,

Violet

Violet,
Once again thanks and I know the org is new and probably is adding as you go along. I thought of another idea I can look into and let you know if it is plausible some time next year, might be too much work but they have a charity drive at work that is fairly substantial.
Thanks,
Janet
