Summary of Module

Just giving is one of the most widely used giving/donation platforms used by fund raisers.  Donors have pages that facilitate giving on the just giving platform and raise money for projects. 

The iFINITY just giving bridge can be deployed easily for users of iMIS to retrieve the donations from the just giving platform and match them to donors and giving distributions in iMIS. 

The Process

  • From a page in iMIS the user downloads (on a weekly basis) the latest batch of settled payments from Just Giving using the JustGiving API
  • These payments are matched against fundraisers in the iMIS database based on their fundraiser page ID and fundraiser ID matching iMIS distribution codes
  • Any unmatched donations are shown, and the operator is able to set up or amend distributions to re-match the payments
  • Once all payments have been matched, the batch can be imported
  • New donor records can be created on iMIS based on whether the gift includes donor information and consent, and the gift is then allocated to the donor record
  • If no consent or details are given the gift can be allocated to the fundraiser record or to a specified anonymous account

The configuration allows for the user to set:

  • The JustGiving API details relevant to their organisation
  • The member type and address purpose of any new donor records created as part of the import
  • The cash account to credit the donations to
  • The default anonymous contact ID

Deployment of Module

You should allow between 5 and 8 hours of paid consulting time to deploy this module within any given iMIS system.

Customisation Potential

If you have a specific need in terms of the way your donations are processed into iMIS then we do have a fair amount of potential to alter the base line process to meet your specific needs. This can still be done without compromising upgradeability and will usually be achieved by editing the supplied stored procedures.

Technical

The bridge makes use of the Just Giving API to retrieve donations over the internet from the just giving database. This avoids the need for manual intervention and ensures that the hard work of grabbing the donations and processing them is for the most part done automatically though matching and exception handling.  API Just giving
