You can use Contributions Statistics reports to analyze contributors' gift and pledge patterns, as well as gift distribution by fund. Most of these reports include summary pages at the end.
Here's a description of each Statistics report:
Breakdown Analysis on Gifts - Weekly
Creates a list of the total number of contributors that have given within a specified weekly dollar range. Total gifts are divided by the total number of weeks from Start to Stop date to determine each contributor's weekly dollar amount. The contributor counts are grouped by member status.
Breakdown Analysis on Pledges - Weekly
Creates a list of the total number of contributors that have pledged within a specified weekly dollar range. The contributor counts are grouped by member status.
Giving Range Report
Creates a list of the total number of Contributors that have given within a specified dollar range. It also includes the percentage of Total, Total Given, Average this Period, and Average this Period Last Year.
If you select to Count Combined as Two Records, the report takes the amount of gifts for the date range and splits them between the two records for combined contributors.
For example, if a couple gave $20,000 for the year, as combined, it displays in the $20,000 category. If you count combined as two records, $10,000 displays for each contributor. This displays in the number of contributor, % of total contributions, and total given columns.
Creates a list that includes the Pledge to Date amount, Gifts to Date amount (including Prepayments), the difference between the two amounts, the percentage of the pledge that has been paid, and the Pledge Status.
Creates a list that compares gifts, pledges, or both over two different years or the same year. It includes the difference between the two amounts, the percent change between the two amounts, and the pledge status. Gift totals do not include prepayments.
Pledge/Gift Totals by Fund
