New

The Fundraising API has been released for a public beta. This API handles information related to the fundraising hierarchy, including the campaign, fund, and appeal entities:

  • Campaigns set the overall objectives and initiatives for raising money, and they are typically the top tier of the fundraising hierarchy. For example, organizations can create campaigns to encompass fundraising efforts related to annual operating expenses, new buildings, or endowments.
  • Funds represent the donor's intent for how to use or earmark a gift. For example, the gift can be intended for a specific cause or financial purpose. Funds are often linked to financial suites and indicate where to allocate a gift.
  • Appeals are the sources and solicitations that bring in gifts, and they are typically the most granular piece of the fundraising hierarchy. Examples of appeals include direct mailings, online donation pages, phonathons, auctions, and events.

The initial release contains endpoints to retrieve these entities by ID and to manage custom fields. For more information, check out the entity and endpoint references.
