Donor Recognition Preference Updates

April 19th, 2021

WFAA is redesigning templates for MOAs, pledge agreements, and gift commitments. As part of this initiative, we have revised the options for recognition preferences for donors. We often have donors express a preference to remain anonymous, but their expectations for anonymity vary. Without further clarification, it is difficult to ensure we are honoring their preference. For this reason, we are providing clearer options that we can support through defined business processes and system options now available in ABE and ARW. Additional training is available on these changes – if you would like to learn more, email the Help Center (help@uwadvancement.org) and request to be enrolled in Gift Agreement Template learning plan.
