GiveWP Tributes


The Tributes Add-on allows admins to designate how your donors can indicate a person that they are giving in tribute of. Most commonly, this is used for “In Honor of” or “In Memory of”.

The Tributes Add-on empowers your donors to give in a way that honors their loved ones. You have the ability to create as many customer tribute types as you like. You can optionally enable both eCards or mail a physical card. Tributes also allows you to manage the card requests you get from your donors, and provides custom reporting tools.

Each of the articles in this section go in depth on each of those features.

Note: Do you need guidance on downloading, installing, or activating GiveWP Add-ons? Read our docs about that here.

Enable Tributes

Once you activate GiveWP Tributes, you’ll be able to see the settings screen above, found in “Donations > Settings > Tributes”. But nothing will yet be enabled. To enable Tributes for your forms and/or eCards or Mail a Card, enable Tributes here.

Required or Optional

The Required or Optional section of the Tributes add-on provides you the ability to make Tributes required to complete the donation, pre-selected as yes, or pre-selected as no.

When Tributes is set to “required”, the fields will automatically display on your donation form. The button for Dedication Type will be auto-selected.

Tributes Notification Option

With this option, you can provide your donor with a method of notifying the recipient of their tribute donation. This can be donor’s choice, admin’s choice, or no notification at all.

These notifications can be set per-tribute type, meaning one style of notification can be provided for the “Mail a Card” option, and another provided for “e-cards”.

Tributes Reporting Features

If your donors want you to mail cards on their behalf, you’ll want a way to manage those. GiveWP Tributes has powerful reporting features that makes printing your card and tracking whether they are mailed or not as simple as a few clicks.

Additionally, you can track what eCards were sent on your donors’ behalf as well.
