CiviContribute is the module within jManage that handles stand-alone contribution records. CiviContribute supports fundraising and related money management. It has two main uses:
- to facilitate fundraising campaigns and collection of donations, and
- to support activities by other jManage components that have financial elements, such as collecting and recording payments in the Events and Member components.
CiviContribute offers a number of tools for raising money through your web site. For example, you can create contribution pages with fundraising targets, and configure a thermometer-style widget for each contribution page which can be embedded on other web sites and blogs. Personal campaign pages (e.g. sponsor my 10K run for... the name of your organization) and the "tell-a-friend" functionality engage your supporters in raising money for your organization and give them credit for any money that they raise from other people on your behalf.
Several other jManage components require CiviContribute to be enabled for collection and tracking of associated payments or fees. To use CiviContribute you will need to configure a payment processor.
